John Wamsley is an Indigenous actor, dancer and social media producer raised in Kitchener, Ontario. His first on-stage role was as Pig Pen in You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown.

John's selected credits include Private Harris in Timothy Findley's The Wars (The Grand Theatre), Jared in Spain (OPIA Theatre Collective), Chip Tolentino in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee (Hart House Theatre), and Flute in A Midsummer Night's Dream (Shakespeare BASH'd).
John cofounded the Toronto-based theatre company, Theatre Born Between, and is currently one of the Social Media Producers at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) and the Social Media and Graphic Design Coordinator for Pride Toronto. John recently completed the Social Media Marketing program at George Brown College Continuing Education.
