Wayne Burns

Reads for free & accepts tips

I am a classically trained actor with over a decade of experience in Film/TV and theatre. I am currently seen as Lykos, The Prince of Athens in Syfy/Netflix's "Olympus" and in supporting roles on the Award-Winning short-form series' "Avocado Toast" & "Slo-Pitch" for OUTtv and KindaTV.

I pride myself on my commitment, passion and curiosity. I'm a deep thinker who likes to ask big questions so will be more than happy to assist with any script or character analysis you might want. I consider my style of communication to be honest, constructive and direct.

I'm from Nova Scotia, Canada, but currently reside in Toronto, so if you have any questions about the Canadian industry, I've got you.

You can reach out to me on WeAudition or via email at wayneburns0604@gmail.com to set up a time that works for you.

I'm looking forward to playing together!
