3. Maev Beaty, actor

No stranger to this list, Beaty had another phenomenal year. She began by reprising her role as Elmire in Canadian Stage’s remount of Chris Abraham’s hilarious Stratford production of Tartuffe. At Stratford again in the summer, she was one tough (but resourceful) Cookie in Michael Healey’s new adaptation of The Front Page. Meanwhile, at Soulpepper, she did some of her best work yet, adding nuance and mystery to the enigmatic Little Menace: Pinter Plays, and then battling her domineering, drug-addicted mother (Nancy Palk) in a thrilling August: Osage County. Don’t miss her in February’s remount of another great play, Secret Life Of A Mother, at Crow’s.
