Jane Moffat is, quite literally, an actor's actor: the Canadian-born actress studied with the famed Lee Strasberg at his namesake institute in Los Angeles, and worked and trained at the Actor's Studio in New York City. Moffat brought a sympathetic ear and maternal dedication to a variety of roles, starting with her 1993 television debut on NBC's made-for-TV-movie "Woman on Trial: The Lawrencia Bembenek Story." After appearing in the romantic comedy "Two if by Sea" (1996), Moffat landed steady work in everything from the coming-of-age road trip adventure "Interstate 60: Episodes of the Road" (2002) to the groundbreaking cable series "Queer as Folk" (Showtime, 2000-05). She portrayed Jackie Kennedy's social secretary in the high-profile miniseries "The Kennedys" (ReelzChannel, 2011), and appeared as an encouraging but exasperated mother in both the Canadian indie film "Moon Point" (2011) and the sci-fi ensemble series "Alphas" (SyFy, 2011-12). The longtime Toronto resident ventured later into horror with the surprise hit "Mama" (2013), an aptly named title for the generous, talented actress.
