Naomi Dayneswood


Originally from England, Naomi has been a resident of British Columbia, Canada since the age of 4. At that tender age, Naomi knew that acting was indeed in her future, and she actively pursued the dream in the manner of the typical toddler: by being really, really loud.

As Naomi grew, so too did her burgeoning career. Focusing on attaining a much grander audience beyond her family and friends, she joined Theatre Kelowna Society, starting as a Munchkin in The Wiz at age 10 and moving up the ladder to lead as Dorothy in the Land of Oz by the time she was 15. After having played parts in many shows with other local theatre groups, including Creekside Theatre and Shakespeare Kelowna, Naomi made the move to Vancouver to pursue a career in film.

Following graduation with honors from Vancouver Film School, a heralded Acting for Film and Television Academy, Naomi has had numerous opportunities within the industry, appearing in numerous theatrical productions, short films, and commercials for companies like Coast Capital Savings and The Knowledge Network, and appearing in the Saturn Award-winning series Stargate: Atlantis. She’s also a driven producer with a track record of making projects reality: in 2009, she staged and starred in a sold-out run of the Broadway hit The Last Five Years in Vancouver.

Her most recent project, Naomi: The Show – a webseries about the perils of being a small-town girl in a big city – was released in December 2010 and has since won Outstanding Sketch Comedy Series at LA Web Series Festival 2011, took home the Sharp Cuts Indie Film Festival’s Viewers Choice Award, was an Audience Choice Finalist in the New Media Film Festival, and most recently won the grand prize in the NATPE Quick Flicks Video Contest. Naomi is currently working with co-creator Jennica Harper on development of the show’s second season.
