Krista MacDonald was born a New Waterford girl, so it was only fitting that she began her career on the iconic Canadian film New Waterford Girl, plucked from the crew as a Production Assistant to play the feature role ‘Betty-Anne Pottie.’ Over the next two decades, Krista would amass credits on both sides of the camera, leading to successive Screen Nova Scotia Award acting nominations in 2016 and 2017.
Production positions include Director’s and Producer’s Assistant, Casting Assistant, Wardrobe Assistant, most recently Production Coordinator and Production Manager. While continuing her passion as an actor and singer, Krista accepted a position at DHX Halifax’s Animation Studio, starting as a Department Coordinator, before quickly being promoted to Show Coordinator and then Production Manager, working on productions such as Inspector Gadget and Super Why. Music is a passion for Krista and you can hear her as lead singer on albums by The Whiskey Kisses and The Grass as well as back-up harmonies for Dale Murray, Chris “Mojo” Martin and with her sister Cassie Josephine.
