Aaron Michael Reilly
Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Aaron was born in Buffalo, New York on October 1, 1971 but quickly moved to Toronto, Canada at the age of 2. He began playing guitar when he was 12 years old and always loved the idea of performing. In 1989 Aaron moved to Chicago where he continued to play music and performed in several rock bands over the years. Aaron received his BS in Advertising from Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois in 1995 where he was a member of the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity.
At the turn of the millennium, while working for an Advertising Agency in the Old Town neighborhood of Chicago, Aaron stumbled upon the improv program at The Second City and got hit with the acting bug immediately. This led him to classes at The Second City, Improv Olympic, The Audition Studio, and several weekend-intensive seminars. Aaron immersed himself in the acting scene and over the years has performed in several stage productions, television commercials and over two-dozen short and feature length independent films.
2013s "Unhappy Happy" in which Aaron played the role of "Cary", the eldest of three brothers, won awards at film festivals in Toronto, Ontario and screenings/nominations at festivals in Queens, NY and Seattle, WA. His latest project, feature film "Bigfoot and the Burtons", is slated for release in 2015.
