Kristy LaPointe knew she was going to be an actor when she was 5 years old. What a lunatic. After a childhood performing terrible musical theatre and attending a two year Meisner conservatory, Kristy somehow still doesn't hate acting. Now doing a lot in the comedy world, Kristy is still pretty okay at normal acting too. Put her in your dumb short film, okay? Here's her resume if you need it. And her IMDB if you're like, soooo bored.

John Patrick Shanley One Acts(2014)
Directed by Cindy Christensen, as part of a Meisner Masterclass, this Shanley Extravaganza happened in late November, where Kristy tackled the role of Judy in the one act Last Night In The Garden I Saw You. Kristy cried and swore and stuff. Oooooh, how gritty.
If It's Not Too Much Trouble by Trevor Poleman (2014)
Kristy's first foray into the Toronto Fringe Festival was in the capable hands of her friend Trevor Poleman, who's awarding winning script was written for her. Like...her character was literally named "Christie".
NOW Magazine gave the show 4 N's and singled Kristy out, stating "Kristy LaPointe's natural delivery as level-headed sister Christie is a highlight." Score.
The Party Show(2014)
Kristy's latest screen time comes as a territorial bachelorette, Holly, who is then turned into a raptor in an extremely bizarre episode of The Party Show, directed by AJ Vaage. She'll be back on that show if it becomes a bigger show or something. Probably.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (2001)
Kristy's turn as Harry Potter aka "the boy who lived" in this film adaptation of the hit children's book series was beloved by audiences and critics alike and launched her film career and it's NOT just because her mom was the casting director or whatever.
