Henry Ward Beecher said every good artist must "dip his brush in his own soul." It is because of actor Brad Milne`s ability to draw on his vivid imagination and personal experience to shape complex, interesting characters that he experienced immediate success and has been in more than 140 projects: film, television, theatre, commercials, infomercials, industrials, and webisodes. Acting was an obvious choice for the introspective, extroverted Milne, who began his acting career in Toronto in 1991 where he studied acting with a variety of top U.S. and Canadian coaches for five intensive years. During those early years he worked consistently doing commercials, industrials, TV episodics, and feature films. Brad resides in Los Angeles.
