Having transitioned over the course of their career, Heath has forged an award-winning body of work as a non-binary actor that spans the gender spectrum. In 2016, they received a Dora Award alongside their cast in Chasse-Galerie for Best Ensemble in the Independent Theatre Division and, in 2018, NOW Magazine named them one of the Breakthrough Toronto Stage Artists of the year.
In 2020, they were set for their debut at the Stratford Festival as Rafe in Wolf Hall. Though the production was cut short due to Covid-19, Heath has continued their work throughout lockdowns via virtual workshops with theatre companies across Canada and were brought on as an Artist in Residence by Aluna Theatre from 2020-2021. They’ve also continued developing new work through their residency at Buddies In Bad Times Theatre.
On screen, Heath starred as Silas in the short film They/Them which premiered at the 2021 Inside Out Film Festival, was awarded Best Short Film at the LGBTQ+ Toronto Film Festival and was selected for the Best Acting Award by the Official Trans Pride Brighton Annual Film Festival. They’re also featured as Drew in Say Uncle which had its debut at the Provincetown Film Festival.
Heath has also worked closely with their union through ACTRA Toronto’s queer committee OutACTRAto - they participated in the Queer Your Stories PSA and were also a co-organizer their 2021 virtual Pride event The Rainbow Zoom. In 2021, they were proud to work as a consultant for ACTRA Toronto as they collaborated to re-name the ACTRA Award categories to make them more inclusive for gender non-conforming and non-binary actors.
