Cassie Steele

"Mad" Single Release

April 1, 2014

Actress and singer, Cassie Steele, a Toronto native, attended London School of Dance in Scarborough, Ontario where she trained in ballet and jazz dance.   Cassie released her debut album “How Much for Happy” in 2005 and her sophomore album “Destructo Doll” in July 2009. She toured with Keshia Chante in 2006 and did a (Solo) Canadian Tour in 2009.  In April 2012, Cassie released EP “SHIFTY” on iTunes.

Her new single “Mad” is set to be released April 1, 2014, produced by Neff-U (Eminem, 50 Cent, New Edition, Ne-Yo etc.) and will have an accompanying video shortly after, directed by Shenae Grimes (DeGrassi, 90210).

Her acting career kicked off when she landed the lead role as “Abby” in the CW’s  THE L.A. COMPLEX.  The series opened as a six-part, one-hour drama following the lives of six sexy young performers living in an apartment-style motel for displaced dreamers while pursuing their dreams in Hollywood.

Cassie had her TV breakthrough when she turned heads as “Manny Santos” on 10 seasons of the internationally acclaimed drama series DeGrassi:  The Next Generation.  Her role as Manny earned her a 2003 nominee and 2002  winner of a Young Artist Award for Best Ensemble Actor in a TV Series.

She appeared in other productions including a lead role in the Disney MOW Lamont’s Maccabees, young Sydney in the series Relic Hunter (2002 Young Artist Award nomination for Best Performance in a TV Drama Series), Julie in Full Court Miracle (2004 Young Artist Award nomination for Best Performance in a TV movie), and a guest appearance on Doc.  In the summer of 2007, Cassie played the role of Blu in three episodes of the hit CTV dramatic series Instant Star.

Cassie will next be seen leading opposite Alexis Knapp in the MTV feature film THE DORM which is slated to premiere late 2014.   

Other major credits include the lead role in the Lifetime feature SORORITY SURROGATE,  the Disney movie-for-television LAMONT’S MACCABEES, RELIC HUNTER, FULL COURT MIRACLE, DOC, and found recurring on the CTV hit series INSTANT STAR.  These performances garnered Cassie two nominations for the Young Artist Awards in categories Best Performance in a TV Drama Series and Best Performance in a TV movie.
