She tells us more about the film as well as other projects she’s involved in. Olunike Adeliyi was born in Toronto, Ontario. Raised in both Jamaica and Canada, the well-travelled actress ultimately earned a place at the highly coveted American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City.

Olunike’s popularity gained momentum after her appearances in films and TV shows such as SAW 3D, The Listener, Two Cities, Being Human, Killjoys, Boost, and The Girlfriend Experience, to name a few. Olunike is currently on CBC’s new breakout comedy, Workin’ Moms.
