Lisa Berry is an accomplished actress who transitions between movies, TV shows and theatre while living in Canada. Born in Richmond Hill, Canada she was the fourth child of her parents and according to herself, a particularly shy kid when she was small. The little girl was taken under the wing by all of her older siblings, and gradually she was able to find her voice and express herself.
While the actress started her career as a makeup artist, since training in The Randolph Academy for the Performing Arts, the confidence was strengthened, and she was given a path to make her career beyond just makeup. Soon instead of waiting in the trailers, she was the one getting the makeup done on her and stepping out on the stage for her new career as a theatre actress.
Lisa Berry was cast as ‘Billie’ in Supernatural.
Lisa made her career on the stage and was even nominated for multiple awards for her performance in Father Come Home From The Wars which was organized by SoulPepper Theatre in Toronto. Theatre is near and dear to her heart because it allowed the actress to express herself, but her job was also the reason she met her future husband and life partner.
Lisa Berry Married Her Boyfriend Dion Johnstone After 10 Years of Relationship
Dion and Lisa met while doing ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ together.
Life plays tricks with you sometimes but time is circular, what goes around comes around, what is meant to be will happen at any cost, and it is particularly true for Lisa Berry and Dion Johnstone. The future husband and wife met in Stratford when they were both casts in the play To Kill a Mockingbird. It was the first day of rehearsal, and it was also the first time the two met for the first time.
Well, the thing is they were meant to meet at a much earlier date, her friends were trying to set her up with Dion even before they met on stage. Lisa was looking for someone to settle down with and not get into the whole dating scene, which is why even though her friends floated the actor’s name, she was just not interested in being in a relationship.
Dion Johnstone and Lisa Berry went through a long-distance relationship.
Then, call it fate or good freaking luck, but the moment Dion walked into the rehearsal, Lisa fell for her. The tall, beautiful man was something she thought she deserved and Dion was also feeling the same thing which is why on 11 August 2008 the couple started dating.
For the earlier part of their relationship, Dion said it was all FaceTime and long-distance relationships. They would call each other and sync the movies on the television and watch it together while living miles apart. Work was keeping them apart, but then the couple still managed to work around the whole long-distance thing.
The Marriage Proposal and Tying the Knot
Lisa Berry agreed to marry Dion after an elaborate proposal by him.
Dion is a romantic, and when he was certain Lisa was the one he wanted to spend the rest of his life with, he decided to take the actress to Whistler. The couple visited the place before, but they didn’t visit the mountains while only walking around the village. He wanted to propose on top of the mountain and to make sure she didn’t suspect a thing, he convinced her he needed a photo-op and they were unable to get it the first time.
Lisa was not aware of what was going on, and he led her to the top of the second peak where the floor is made of glass. She was scared to walk on top of the glass, but then Dion kept telling her “I Got You” and finally she was able to walk.
The actor tried to convince her to get to the edge of the mountain for a better look at the whole area, but this was the moment he decided was the right time to get down on one knee, when she turned around, he was on one bent knee and holding a ring box in his hand. The actress was clueless about Dion’s proposal plan, and when she saw him on his knee, the actress was quick to say yes.
