Heidi von Palleske is a film actor, activist and writer. Best known for such movies as Dead Ringers, Take the Lead. The Cusp and Ramona, Heidi has also been in countless series including Starhunter, Hidden Room and Street Legal. Her work as an activist took on both Canadian and International policy on the use and exportation of asbestos. When described to her as an upward battle of David and Goliath proportions, Heidi replied, "Read to the end of the story and you will find that David won that one!" She spits her time between Toronto and a retreat on the St. Lawrence River.
"The writing is superior. Not a cliche anywhere. So inelligent in every observation, so much insight in every reflection." ---- Helen Weinzweig, author of Basic Black With Pearls, Passing Ceremony "Heidi isn't only an amazing actor, she is one of the best, most brilliant writers I know." ---- John Frizzell, writer/director, A Winter's Tan, Life With Billy "Sex, suicide and the nature of art. An ambitious and successful piece of work." ---- The Writers' Federation of Nova Scotia, HR Percy Award review "Heidi's work flows with a quiet rhythm and strikes at the heart." ---- Richard R. Carey, Beggars Press
