About Djennie Laguerre

Djennie Laguerre is best known for her roles on stage and screen. Haitian-born, she immigrated to Canada at the age of four and has since charmed audiences with her acting, dancing and storytelling skills. Laguerre has nurtured her gifts by attending De La Salle High School (Visual arts and Theatre) and studying Theatre and French literature at the University of Ottawa. What affirmed her future as an actor and storyteller was her acceptance into the prestigious Stella Adler Acting Conservatory in New York. After two years in school, Laguerre explored her craft by performing in small but popular theatre shows in Manhattan and Harlem. But after September 11th, it was in Toronto that her professional stage and screen acting career took off. As a multifaceted bilingual artist, she was able to shine and expand her acting opportunities.
