Grace Hawkins has had a love of film & storytelling her entire life. After graduating from Ryerson’s prestigious Radio & Television Arts Program, Grace worked in the industry in various capacities before joining the team at Powerhouse Casting in Toronto. During her 3 years there, she worked with award winning directors, production companies and ad agencies from around the world to find the best talent for several well known ad campaigns. She also got to know the amazing actors in Toronto personally and worked closely with their agencies to facilitate scheduling concerns & bookings. With this behind the scenes knowledge of commercial casting & the desire to continue her growth, she joined the Ambition family in 2017.
Starting out as Ambition's front of house assistant, Grace learned the ropes from the best team in Toronto.

She is now developing a small roster of her own with a focus on fresh and diverse voices. On weekends, Grace can usually be found binging a newly discovered show, spending time with her friends and family, staying active or curling up on her couch with a glass of wine, a book & her cat Barbra.
