Who is Taylor Thorne?
Taylor was born under the zodiac sign of Aries on 1 April 2004, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada; she holds Canadian nationality, and her ethnicity is White. She is an actress with nearly ten credits to her name, perhaps known best for her role as Taylor West in the series “Northern Rescue”, starring William Baldwin, Amalia Williamson, and Kathleen Robertson; the series had 13 award nominations and won eight.
Early life and education
Taylor was raised alongside her younger sister Addy, in Kitchener, Ontario by her single mother Bobby Kennedy, who is a bridal shop manager; her father’s name hasn’t been revealed, however, it’s known that he is a lawyer.
Taylor showed interest in acting and dancing from an early age, and she danced competitively in hip-hop, jazz, and contemporary, and won numerous awards. She made her first appearance as an actress in the plays “The Wizard of Oz” and “Aladdin” in The Drayton Entertainment Theatre, in Ontario.
She is currently in her senior year attending a local high school in Kitchener.
Taylor made her acting debut on television in 2016, portraying Agent Opa in an episode of the series “Odd Squad”, an action adventure comedy starring Millie Davis, Dalila Bela and Sean Michael Kyer, which is a children series about two young agents, Otto and Olive, who solve the odd things that happen using their math knowledge; the series had 111 award nominations, and won 45.
She made an appearance as Chloe Fowler in two episodes of the series “Condor”, before she was cast to play Taylor West in the Netflix series “Northern Rescue”, a family drama about a widower and single father of three, John West, who moves from Boston, Massachusetts to his small, rural hometow, after his wife died, hoping that it will help him and the children to cope with their loss.
The character which Taylor portrayed was the youngest in the family, and she’s smart and very witty, although sometimes bullied in school, because she’s a confident tomboy, and as Taylor said, she is more girly than the character of Taylor in the series, but they do have something in common – they were both raised by a single parent.
Taylor portrayed Grace Shields in the TV Movie “The Sisterhood” starring Lisa Berry, Siobhan Murphy, and Claire Coffee, followed by her role as Young Sera in the 2019 movie “Project Ithaca” directed by Nicholas Humphries, a science-fiction horror thriller about a group of strangers who awake in an alien spacecraft.
In 2019, she made an appearance in the episode “Rollin’ with the Homies” of the series “In the Dark”, which is an action crime horror about a blind woman who tries to solve the murder of her friend, starring Brooke Markham, Morgan Krantz, and Perry Mattfeld.
Fans of this young, talented actress will be happy to hear that she was cast to play Mary in the movie “Bordello”, which is in post-production, and should be released in 2022.
Love life and relationship
There have been various rumors about Taylor’s love life, one of them that she’s been dating Evan Marsh, since 2018. Evan is a Canadian actor, known best for his roles in the movie “Shazam!” and the series “Workin’ Moms”; he also had a support role in “Northern Rescue”.
They met at the audition for the series “Northern Rescue”, and since they worked together, they eventually became friends, which might grow into love. Taylor posted a photo featuring the two of them while they were hanging out together in Parry Sound, Ontario, although they neither confirmed nor denied these assumptions about them being in a relationship.
As of late 2021, Taylor is single, hasn’t been married or engaged, and doesn’t have children.

In her spare time, Taylor likes to hang out with her friends, and go to the cinema; her favorite actress and her idol is Emma Watson, and her favorite actor is William Baldwin, as she said she learned so much from him, and he gave her the most precious advice about acting, saying: ‘Pretend that cameras aren’t there’, and Taylor has used this trick since then.
