Sarain Fox

Actor & Activist

Sarain Fox has worked in film as an actor, had a successful career as a professional dancer, and modelled in her spare time — but it is her activism that makes her unique. Of Anishinabe lineage, she has long been a passionate spokesperson for her community north of Toronto. In 2017, her circle of influence expanded greatly when she landed the host role for the documentary series RISE, which premiered on Viceland in January. The series followed Sarain as she traveled to indigenous communities across the Americas to meet the individuals and groups working to protect their homelands. It gave a voice to a marginalized people, and a platform for Sarain — who hopes that her own visibility and success can open new doors and opportunities for Aboriginal youths.
