HANN plays “Ben Traimer,” an ambitious theatrical entrepreneur
with a peculiar obsession for 1980s horror movies. He’s caught
in a love triangle between two of his fellow castmates, Lauren
(Lee Tomaschefski) and Stacey (Tamara Pender).
Todd began performing
at an early age. He grew up in Whitecourt, a small town in northern
Alberta. He was involved with school plays and music festivals throughout
elementary school. Todd would coerce his teachers into allowing
him to perform skits at the end of class. He would often recruit
his classmates for his plays. At home, the story remained the same.
When his parents, Alphonsus and Anne, would have friends over, Todd
would hound them into letting him perform skits for his new audience
with the help of his sister, Amy.
His first influence was
his elementary school teacher, Bonnie Reid. She cast Todd in the
lead roles of numerous school plays and entered him in music festivals.
During his childhood, he idolized Harrison Ford (Star Wars, Raiders
of the Lost Ark). But he was also a fan of the Superman movies with
Christopher Reeve. His involvement in school plays continued into
junior high school.
Todd's family began moving
around until finally settling in his birthplace, St. John's, Newfoundland.
His love for performing became a thing of the past as he had to
adjust to new surroundings and new friends. His grades suffered,
but he graduated high school. He attended a community college studying
business management, but was unhappy and dropped out after the second
Allan Hawco, encouraged him to try modeling and acting. But Todd
was hesitant. It had been years since he'd performed
the hell is Stacey?" Todd Hann, Lee Tomaschefski and
Johnny Monster in a confrontational scene from Slasher Flick.
He was bitten by the acting bug, and began to do acting classes
and community theater. Soon he was living in Calgary pursuing an
acting career. His first year in Calgary was a struggle, but after
taking acting classes and doing extra work, he began getting roles
in student, short and independent films.
years in Calgary, Todd has scored lead and principal roles and became
a member of ACTRA (Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio
Artists). In January of 2002, he moved to Vancouver and soon discovered
how competitive the industry would be. He decided it was necessary
to fine tune his acting skills and began studying with Mel Tuck.
Under his guidance, Todd has made important self-discoveries and
has taken his talent to the next level. He is excited about where
this new knowledge will take his career. But, he realizes that his
journey has just begun.
