Maddie Phillips was born and raised in Vancouver, BC until age 10 when she moved to Perth, Western Australia to spend time with her Australian family. She graduated from High School in 2012 at Penrhos College, having studied theater while also earning a High Distinction from L.A.M.D.A (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts). Maddie was confident that acting was still what she wanted to pursue and so moved back to her home town "Hollywood North". She doesn't know when her love of acting began, but likes to compare it to her love of chocolate - "I don't know when I started loving chocolate, I just always have, I always will and I'll never turn it down when it's offered to me!" She has studied with various teachers in Vancouver including Matthew Harrison at The Actors' Foundry, Aaron Craven at The Working Actors' Gym and with various coaches in Vancouver.
