Charlotte Sullivan on MVP, Murdoch Mysteries

From a media release:

Canadian actress Charlotte Sullivan is hard at work! Aside from starring week after week in CBC Television’s MVP, she is set to grace the small screen as Menerva Fairchild in an upcoming episode of the hit Citytv series Murdoch Mysteries. Viewers can catch Sullivan in her guest role on the Still Waters episode of Murdoch Mysteries, airing March 13, 2008 at 10 p.m. ET/PT/MT.

Set in 1895 Toronto, Murdoch Mysteries explores the intriguing world of William Murdoch (Yannick Bisson), a handsome young detective using radical forensic techniques, like fingerprinting and trace evidence, to solve some of the city’s most gruesome murders. Though his unconventional approach elicits ridicule from fellow officers and skepticism from his boss, Inspector Brackenreid (Thomas Craig), Murdoch is often the only one who can crack the case.

In addition to Murdoch Mysteries, Sullivan has been portraying Mandy Czarka in the debut season of MVP, airing Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on CBC Television. Produced by Screen Door, MVP gives viewers an all-access pass into the lives of a fictional NHL hockey team called the Mustangs. As Mandy, Sullivan plays a scheming puck bunny vixen who will stop at nothing to be with one of the Mustang’s star players.

“The character I play on MVP is so different from anything else I’ve done,” said Sullivan. “I had all of these ideas brewing inside my mind about how I wanted Mandy to look and act. From a creative standpoint it was really beautiful to be able to bounce ideas off the producers, and have them go with it.”

Sullivan, who recently shot a fashion spread for Peace Magazine with MVP co-star Amanda Brugel, will also be featured in the April 2008 issue of Flare. April’s issue zeroes in on five up-and-coming Canadian talents, each with a number of projects on the go – and Flare’s editors hand-picked Sullivan to be part of their photo spread!

Later this year, Sullivan will be seen in the CBC Television miniseries; Iron Road, a role which had her filming in both Canada and China, along side veteran actors Peter O’Toole and Sam Neill.

Charlotte Sullivan was born and raised in Toronto. She landed her first role in 1996 playing Marion Hawthorne in the popular family movie Harriet the Spy. She then went on to earn a Young Artist Award nomination for her lead role in Mary Cassatt: An American Impressionist, where she played opposite Amy Brenneman.

Since then Sullivan has played in several major Canadian series including Blue Murder, Radio Free Roscoe, Puppets Who Kill, This is Wonderland and Platinum. Her most recent movie credits include How to Deal, Fever Pitch and Love and Justice, a short film where she stars opposite her Across the River co-star Peter Stebbings.
