Maxim Roy is an internationally-renowned actress with over 100 film credits to her name. She has garnered four Lead Actress Gemini nominations and her impressive career spans television, film and the stage.
Roy was born in Rigaud, Quebec and knew from a young age that she was an independent and creative soul who wanted to explore the world. She started her own production company eighteen years ago when it wasn't a common path for actresses. She is a passionate humanitarian who has lent her voice to causes like ANEB, a non-profit organization that helps those affected by eating disorders. She has always used her platform to support women.
Maxim is the quintessential self-made woman who walks how she wants. We're proud to feature her for Zvelle In Conversation and we're inspired by her passion for her craft and for her fearlessness in an industry that has not always treated women the way they deserve.
