Layla Alizada

Born in Kabul, Afghanistan, Layla spent several years of her childhood living with her family in Montreal, Canada before moving to Vancouver where she grew up and attended the renowned theatre school, Studio 58. English is Layla's fourth language; she learned Farsi, Turkish, and French through her travels as a child. In high school she joined the drama club and participated in school plays. She was scouted by a talent agent at the age of 13, and shortly thereafter, on her first audition, booked a series regular role in the high school drama KidZone. She quickly discovered that acting was her passion, and has dedicated herself to the craft ever since.
