CYNTHIA PRESTON - [aka: Cyndy Preston]
May 18, 1968
Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Cynthia Preston wasn't one of those little girls who dreamed of becoming an actress. Rather
she fell into the craft quite by chance. It was while she was attending high school in Toronto
that her mother suggested a self-improvement course in order to help her overcome extreme
shyness. As a result, Cynthia took up modeling at fifteen and soon found herself working
overseas in Japan for months at a time.
Not long after graduating from high school, she was summoned by CBS talent scouts and
landed the role as Jill Clayburgh's daughter in the made for television movie, Miles to
Go. After that, she continued to find work in some rather offbeat, campy movies like
Pin, The Brian and Prom Night III, as well as doing quite a bit of
voice work on a variety of animated projects; perhaps the most popular being that of Princess
Zelda on the Mario Bros. series.
Although Cynthia has yet to make the leap into more mainstream films and find a wider audience
to enthrall with her talents, over the years this blue-eyed beauty has kept busy with interesting choices, like playing the mentally disturbed groupie in Whale Music, the lost soul in the creepy supernatural thriller Convergence, and the complex wife in the TV series Total Recall 2070. She has also been the recepient of nine Genie Award [Canada's Oscar] nominations for her work. X-Files fans may remember her from the episode "Folie a Deux", where she played a telephone solicitor who gets transformed into a white-eyed, skin-peeling zombie.
Cynthia currently lives in Los Angeles.
