“A Day in the Life” with actress and model, Filsan Dualeh

Filsan Dualeh is an actor and theatre practitioner here in Calgary. She has always had a love of storytelling. As kids, we would often stay up past bedtime, creating little shows, but her love of theatre was ignited at 11 when we saw a stage production of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. Since then, she credits acting for getting her out of her shell, and I’ve seen firsthand what an instrumental role theatre has played in her life.

Filsan Dualeh has a BFA in drama from the University of Calgary; her credits include The Shakespeare Company’s Julius Caesar, FOUR! A Workshop Production with Jupiter Theatre and the upcoming The Green Line with Chromatic Theatre and Downstage Theatre. When she’s not on stage, you can often find her on a run in the neighbourhood or hiking a trail, reading and hanging out with friends and family!
