Biography: Enid-Raye Adams was born in 1973 in Portage la Prairie, Manitoba. Since then, no one has ever pronounced her name correctly. Kids at school called her Igor. After two perms in a row in junior high, she bore a striking resemblance to Napoleon Dynamite. Enid-Raye began working in the theatre and has played in some of Shakespeare's classics: Juliet in "Romeo and Juliet", Olivia in "Twelfth Night", Lady Percy in "Henry IV, Part One" and several others. Her film debut was opposite Russell Crowe in "For The Moment". In 1998, she moved to Vancouver to pursue her career and couldn't get arrested. She couldn't even get a ticket for j-walking. If she j-walked in front of the cops, they would just say, "I'm sorry, we've decided to go another way," or "We're too busy giving tickets to actors who already have agents." It was during this time that she co-wrote and performed in the hilarious one-woman show "Would You Like Fries With That?", a hit in theatres across Canada. She also began doing stand-up comedy and finally threatened to egg an agent's '87 Dodge Dart if he didn't sign her. Remarkably, he did and she has been working ever since. Enid-Raye has also had roles in Steven Spielburg's "Taken", Showtime's "Jeremiah" and the acclaimed "Da Vinci's Inquest" for which she was nominated for a Leo award. Enid-Raye is now preparing to direct and star in her first film. She continues to eat carbs and does stand-up for her cactus plant, Eunice, on Wednesday mornings.
