Zachary Ansley has been acting professionally since he was eleven years old and while still a teenager was honored with a Genie nomination. The winner of the first YTV Acting Award (1989), his many film and television credits include lead roles in Cowboys Don't Cry and Princes in Exile. He is a graduate of Circle in the Square Acting School, New York, and after graduation, acted with Willow Cabin Theatre, New York, before returning to Vancouver to resume his film and television career. His most recent credits have been on Madison, Outer Limits, Sleepwalkers, and Mercy Point. He also appeared as Guildenstern in Hamlet at the Stanley Theatre.

Zachary Ansley was born January 12, 1972
THE plays of David Hare will be unfamiliar fare to many a local theatregoer but the Vancouver Playhouse production of Skylight is a feast to be savoured at leisure.   It appears at the Vancouver Playhouse to Feb. 20, 1999.

The reviewer goes on about several of the main characters and then says this:
Other standouts are Bernard Cuffling's humourless Polonius, Kurt Max Runte's Laertes, Ted Cole's Rosencrantz, Zachary Ansley's Guildenstern, and Donald Adams' Player King and Gravedigger.

This appears to be a Canadian version of Hamlet.


Zachary Ansley starred in a stage production of Arcadia at the Jericho Arts Centre in Vancouver, British Columbia, according to an article from the Vancouver Courier, dated June 10th, 2001.  "Another excellent newcomer to United Players of Vancouver is Zachary Ansley in the role of Valentine, Hannah's unofficial fiancé."  That was the extent of the commentary on Zachary, but other sources claim he was stupendous in the part.

GIRL IN THE GOLDFISH BOWL, A New Comedy by Morris Panych, starred Zachary Ansley, Jennifer Clement, Tom Scholte and Meredith Bain Woodward.  The newspaper article was dated:  March 29  April 27, 2002
Community Performance March 28 it said.  The production seems to have been quite well received.

The review states:

Into this unlikely household comes Lawrence (Zachary Ansley), a man of mystery. When he first confronts Owen, Lawrence is wearing Owen's bathrobe. Both he and Iris explain that Lawrence has fallen into the water and that his clothes are being dried, and that is why the robe is borrowed. Iris and Sylvia both want Lawrence to stay at the house, but initially, Owen is suspicious of this stranger who has nowhere to go and seems to have come from nowhere.

Lawrence charms Iris, who begins to consider him a reincarnation of her goldfish, and he even convinces Owen that his design is not in vain. Sylvia is attracted to this unknown man. Rose is instantly wary of this enigma, considering him a "con man".

As relations between Owen and Sylvia deteriorate, Sylvia becomes more enamoured of Lawrence, and secretly begins to lay plans to leave home, --possibly with Lawrence? Rose gets drunk and throws herself at Lawrence, but subsides into oblivion. According to Iris, she finds Lawrence covered in blood after an accident in the bathroom.

Suddenly the family is united. Sylvia and Iris try to get his body down the stairs and out to the river, but alone they cannot manage it. Owen finds them and comes to their help.

Rose reads in the paper that a body of an unknown man has been washed up, but the family is not concerned. Iris, now an adult, looks back on her childhood and the reality of her shattered dream. This is a really moving climax to an intriguing, witty and thought-provoking play.
