Devin MacKinnon had never acted before he arrived at UPEI.
By the time his studies were complete, he had a minor in theatre studies, performed in a production each of the four years he attended, and became involved with a community theatre group in Charlottetown.
He also spent a summer at the Victoria Playhouse — his first paid job. That, he says, is when he really caught the acting bug.
“When I realized that you could make a living from it, that’s kind of when I decided to pursue it more full time,” MacKinnon said.
MacKinnon, along with nine others, was recently selected to attend the Birmingham Conservatory for Classical Theatre.
