Nancy Robertson is a Gemini Award winning actor, who has received numerous accolades and nominations for her diverse work on stage, on TV and in film. At the Northwest Film Festival she was named Best Actress for her work in the independent film Organ Music, and she garnered rave reviews, as well as a Leo nomination, for her hilarious portrayal of Harriet in the award-winning feature film The Delicate Art of Parking. She has appeared onstage in numerous roles, winning a BC Drama Fest Award for Best Supporting Actress in the play Standing On My Knees, as well as being a member of the winning team at the International Improv Tournament, with her team taking the championship three times.
Some of her television credits include the recurring role of Gertrude on Fox-TV's Los Luchadores, as well as roles on The Addams Family, Beggars and Choosers, Dead Like Me, Robson Arms and she also played The Dormouse in Nick Willings' TV mini-series Alice. Robertson is probably best known, however, as one of the lead characters in Canada's top rated sitcom Corner Gas, where she played the book-smart but socially stunted Wanda Dollard.
Aside from earning her and her cast mates a Gemini Award for Best Ensemble Performance, individually Robertson's work as Wanda was nominated for three Canadian Comedy Awards and six Leo Awards, earning her a win in the category Best Performance by an Actress in a Comedy. It's little wonder that she was recently put on MORE Magazine's list of Most Compelling Women.
