In 1980 she won the Genie Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role for Meatballs. In her acceptance speech, however, she communicated the belief that she had won the award more for the fact of being a Canadian actress in a popular hit film, at a time when Canadian films still predominantly cast bigger-name stars from the United States, than for her actual performance. She was nominated for the same award in 1988 for her role in Taking Care, although she did not win on that occasion.
Her other film credits include Lie with Me, Soup for One, Def-Con 4, God Bless the Child and The Guardian, while her television credits include Custard Pie, Anne of Avonlea and guest roles in Adderly, Danger Bay, Seeing Things, Queer as Folk, This Is Wonderland, Lost Girl and Degrassi.
As a director, she has directed plays for the Shaw Festival, the Blyth Festival and Theatre Passe Muraille, including productions of William Shakespeare's Henry V, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Pericles and Cymbeline, Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot, Terence Rattigan's French Without Tears, Noël Coward's Star Chamber, Eve Ensler's The Vagina Monologues and Michael Healey's The Nuttalls. She has taught for University College Drama Program, the Stratford Festival, the Shaw Festival, Ryerson University and George Brown College.
