Monique Ganderton

Monique Ganderton.

Monique Ganderton is a Canadian actress seen  in the film. She portrayed the Candy Witch.


Monique Ganderton was born in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. She has always had a passion for sports and adventure. She achieved high levels of track and field, equestrian show jumping and is also a certified snowboard instructor. She was involved in diving, gymnastics, softball, skating and dabbled in martial arts. Monique has always been an avid writer and artist and thought about going into journalism prior to performing.

Monique was discovered at a local shopping mall in Edmonton by a modeling agent and agreed to give it a try. She moved to Toronto at 18 to pursue modeling and whatever else would spark some fire in her.

A few days on set watching a stunt woman shoot the place up triggered an internal passion for action. Monique soon pursued stunt work adamantly. Her first Stunt gig came on "The Recruit" where she met the wonderful Bridget Moynahan and the inspiring Al Pacino. The job was amazing and secured Monique as an up and coming stunt woman and stunt actor. Monique then relocated west to the ocean and has been working full time as a stunt woman and stunt actor for the last seven years.

Monique has two sisters, Christine Ganderton and Angela Ganderton. She has a dog named Rocky that she adopted from the SPCA shelter, a cat named Apollo that she found in a box in an alley and a horse named Baby of whom she rescued from a run down farm on a mountain side.

In the future Monique hopes to use her writing and performing experience to create projects.

Monique has stunt doubled Sigourney Weaver, Tricia Helfer, Bridget Moynahan, Leelee Sobieski, Darryl Hannah, Famke Jensen, Rebecca Romijn, Karen Cliché, Stacy Keibler, Amanda Tapping, Mandy Moore, Monica Schnarre, Amelia Cooke and Jane Lynch.
