Acting Grad Monika Monika Lands Role on Bell Fibe Web Series ‘Realm 2’

Monika Monika

Monika Monika recently landed a role on Bell Fibe’s Realm 2 a “dream come true” for the Class of 2021 Acting for Film, TV & the Theatre grad.

The web series follows the lives of various hopefuls, whose goals in life are similar, despite the fact that their paths have never crossed.

“Working on Realm 2 has been an incredible journey for me… It’s incredibly fulfilling to see our hard work and dedication being recognized on such a platform,” said Monika, who plays the character of Pooja – a fashionable Hindu Indian woman and landlord in her 30s, whose tenants include a fortune teller.

“Portraying the character of Pooja challenged me in ways I hadn’t anticipated, but it was immensely rewarding.”

Monika attributes her training at Toronto Film School for helping her land the role on Realm 2 – an achievement she characterised as a “significant milestone” in her career thus far.

“This accomplishment is a testament to the valuable education and training I received during my time at Toronto Film School,” she said.

“My training at TFS provided me with a strong foundation that helped me prepare for the role of Pooja. It also taught me valuable skills that I could apply on set, allowing me to bring depth to my character.”

Now that she’s graduated and making her own mark, Monika said there’s one piece of advice she’d like to share with TFS Acting students hoping to follow in her footsteps:

“Never stop learning and growing!” she said. “Embrace every opportunity to hone your craft and don’t be afraid to take risks.”
