Tim Nhzlazane’s career as an actor in Winnipeg began 17 years ago with various roles on stage and screen.  He has appeared in feature films and television in a variety of actor roles such as “Radio Christmas”, “Tales from the Hood 3”, “The Christmas Heart”, “Sunnyside”, “A Warden’s Ransom”, and “The Don Cherry Story Part 2”.  His latest success as a performer was in the Hallmark Christmas Movie “Project Christmas Wish”.   He played the character “Cullen” who was an awkward Christmas tree salesman desperately seeking advice for his romantic wedding proposal from “Lucy” played by female lead Amanda Schull.   In the autobiographical motion picture “Percy” starring Academy award winner Christopher Walken, he earned a principal role as an “African Delegate”, lending his perspective on GMO’s to an assembly of farmers from around the world.   Another notable appearance was in the cult hit series “Todd and the Book of Evil” that aired on the Space Network from 2010-2012.  

Tim holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Winnipeg in Theatre and Film.  He studied under professors such as Sheila Carter and Blake Taylor who are also Manitoba Film industry professionals.  Over the years, on-going training through the Actors Training Centre, Onalee Ames Film Studio, and various Actors Gyms through ACTRA Manitoba have helped develop Tim’s craft as a performer.  Stage acting credits include performances in the Winnipeg Fringe Festival, Master Playwright Festivals, and the Tara Players Theatre Company.

Tim has been an ACTRA Manitoba councilor for over 6 years.  He began as Member at Large and then served as Treasurer for three years.  Currently he is a co-chair on the Diversity and Inclusivity Committee advocating for underrepresented performers in Film and Television.
