|Origin||Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada|
Born and raised in Regina, Sandomirsky knew from the age of three that she wanted to be in theatre, having regaled her grandparents with her version of selections from The Sound of Music. She had a Jewish upbringing, afternoon Hebrew school and summers at Camp B’nai B’rith in Pine Lake, Alta. Two years of undergrad at the University of Regina sparked a desire for a trek out West to go to film school. There, Sandomirsky realized she was not the technical type, so she finished a bachelor’s in theatre at the University of British Columbia and went on to a successful career in various entertainment genres. She is also a mom to nine-year-old Ben.
Her resumé is a “who’s who” of hit television shows, including Wiseguy, X-Files, The Outer Limits, The Twilight Zone, Flash Gordon, Millennium and Da Vinci’s Inquest. However, her real love is theatre, she said, “because you are so in touch with the audience. You can communicate directly with them and feed off their energy.” One of her most enjoyable shows was the innovatively staged The One That Got Away, set in the swimming pool at the Jewish Community Centre of Greater Vancouver. “I loved going to ‘the J’ and just feeling that Jewish atmosphere surrounding me every time I walked into the building,” she said of that experience.
