Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A familiar face to Canadian television viewers for more than three decades, actress Sherry Miller was an in-demand and award-winning performer on countless series from Canadian broadcasters, including "E.N.G." (CTV, 1989-1994), "Queer as Folk" (Showtime, 2000-05), "The Best Years" (Global/The N, 2007-09) and "Carter" (Bravo, 2018- ). Born June 24, 1955 in Tonoka, Alberta, Canada, she was a dancer and singer before she began appearing on television, first as one of the many hosts of the long-running children's series "Polka Dot Door" (TVOntario, 1971-1993), and later, as the glamorous spokesperson for Spumante Bambino wines. She began making inroads towards an acting career in the early 1980s, appearing in minor roles on shows like "SCTV" (Global/CBC/NBC/Superchannel/Cinemax, 1976-1984) and "Bizarre" (CTV/Showtime, 1981-86), but found greater exposure as a news anchor for Global Television between 1986 and 1988. The latter experience led to her casting on "E.N.G" as a weather caster for a fictional Canadian TV news station.

The latter experience led to her casting on "E.N.G" as a weather caster for a fictional Canadian TV news station. Miller earned her first two of four Gemini nominations for supporting actress for her performance, and soon moved into steady work as a character player in Canadian television, as well as American-made screen projects lensed or produced there. Miller enjoyed recurring roles on "F/X: The Series" (CTV, 1996-98) and "Tom Stone" (CBC, 2002-04), played the mother of a gay teenager (Randy Harrison) on the American/Canadian adaptation of British series "Queer as Folk," and was part of a May-December romance as a sleep doctor involved with a younger surgeon on the Stephen King-developed "Kingdom Hospital" (ABC, 2004). Between these efforts, Miller also netted a Gemini as the mother of a gambling-addicted teen (Eliza Cuthbert) in "Lucky Girl" (2001) and a fourth nomination for the CTV thriller "A Killing Spring" in 2002. Between these efforts, there were occasional appearances in features like "Johnny Mnemonic" (1995) and Sofia Coppola's "The Virgin Suicides" (1999), and a brief stint as Aunt Hilda in the 1996 Showtime TV movie that served as the pilot for "Sabrina the Teenage Witch" (ABC/The WB, 1996-2003), though the role was recast with Beth Broderick when it went to series. Miller continued to remain exceptionally busy in the new millennium with recurring roles on Douglas Coupland's "jPod" (CBC, 2008) and "Bitten" (Space/Syfy, 2014-16) and series regular work as the mentor and supporter of a former foster care teen on "The Best Years." A decade later, Miller was still working at a brisk clip with recurring roles on "Open Heart" (TeenNick/YTV, 2015) and as the mayor of a small Canadian town in the comedy "Carter" (Bravo 2018- ).
