Bio

April Telek is a Canadian actress and former model best known for winning the title of Miss Canada in 1994 and for her starring role as Denise in the 2009 made-for-TV movie Mr. Troop Mom.

Telek was born and raised in North Vancouver, British Columbia. After landing her first modeling gig at the age of ten, April quickly realised her love for the camera.

In 1994, April went on to win the title of Miss Canada, which took her to 17 international competitions, including Miss Asia Pacific in the Philippines, and Miss Top Model of the World in Istanbul, Turkey.

She has also had the honour of being titled Hottest Canadian Talent on the web and was voted First Wave Babe of the Month on more than one occasion.

April has worked with some of Hollywood's top A-List talent in feature films such as Mr. Troop Mom (Geoge Lopez, Jane Lynch), Gray Matters (Heather Graham, Molly Shannon), and White Noise (Michael Keaton), among others.

April's television credits include starring in the television series The Immortal as Dr. Sara Beckman with Lorenzo Lamas and CTV's Canadian hit show Robson Arms for two seasons as the salacious Sasha.

Other television appearances include Hallmark Hall of Fame's Growing the Big One, Shattered on Global Television, Hell on Wheels on AMC in the USA as well as being featured along with her beautiful home on MTV Cribs.

Some of the roles April's most proud of include A&E's Emmy Award-winning MOW Flight 93 where she played Liz Glyk, the wife of one of the heroes/passengers on the ill-fated United Flight 93 that met its demise on September 11th; Cathy Evelyn Smith (the last person to see John Belushi alive) in The Mork & Mindy Story for NBC; and Jana in Amazon Falls, an official selection for the 35th Toronto International Film Festival.

April is a director and board member for the Lions Gate Hospice Society / North Shore Hospice. She became passionate about the Hospice Society when her aunt was diagnosed with a terminal illness and passed away at St. James Cottage Hospice in Vancouver.

April was very involved in the capital campaign to raise funds for the first free-standing hospice on the North Shore.

April has been involved with her church's outreach program for the Downtown Eastside and supports The Canadian National Institute for the Blind and Canuck Place charities.
