Don’t Call Her "Just a Banker"
Ali Tataryn lends her chops to Morgan Gunnarsson – our no nonsense banker, who helps her clients in every way she can without ever crossing the line.
Just prior to working on WindCity, Ali worked on a quirky Canadian project, Teen Lust, directed by Blaine Thurier, starring Cary Elwes and also took part in Heaven Is For Real with Greg Kinnear.
When not onscreen, Ali runs Frame Arts Warehouse and will be taking part in the upcoming International Women's Week Cabaret of Monologues with Sarasvati Productions as a slam poet.
Read on to see how this all-around artist fell into step with her much more straight-laced character!
What does it mean to you to be a part of this production?
Being part of this production was a fabulous experiment for me. I'm very interested in new media forms and am fascinated by the process of telling a heartwarming story while still working with the funders involved to serve their needs. Aside from that, just being able to work so closely with some of the most talented and known names in Winnipeg was a big honor, and a little intimidating! Seriously!
Tell us a bit about Morgan. Can you relate to her at all?
Playing Morgan was such a fun challenge for me. I LOVE Morgan because she is so intelligent and still so funny. I have to admit, I get intimidated by top-to-bottom business suits, but I realized that I have more in common with her than I thought, now that I run my own business.
I can relate to her also, because she is very much "stuck in the middle" of the separation, but she always kept things professional.
See how Morgan brings straight-laced to life when WindCity premieres January 7!
