Illya Torres-Garner was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba to a proud and progressive family of six kids. He attended many theatre schools and honed his talents and passion for acting at the University of Winnipeg Theatre Honours Program. Illya has performed on stage and screen for local and national audiences since he was 12. He played a recurring character on Canadian sci-fi 2030 CE and by the end of his time at the U of W played a very well received Oberon in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Most recently, Illya has performed with StageWorks, Ink in various rock opera productions and danced with TriptheDark Dance Company in their story-based dance productions. He recently performed in Davita's Harp with the Jewish Theatre Collaborative and re-sparked his taste for dramatic stage performing. When Illya is not wearing his acting hat, he plays music and runs a construction company, ITG Construction. Illya is thrilled to be working with Artists Rep for the first time.
