  Summary  

Janyse Aldis Jaud (first name pronounced Zja-niece, born November 26, 1969) is a Canadian actress, dancer and singer/songwriter. She is of Icelandic-French descent.

Janyse Jaud has been featured in the media, from television to film, animation and music, to anime and video games.

Raised on a farm in Kelowna, British Columbia and of Icelandic and French descent, Janyse started performing in theatre, music and classical ballet productions at the age of five. She wrote her first song at the age of nine and her influences are an amalgam of different artists and genres.

The messages of her songs were taken from her own first hand experience, after being in a car accident. “The doctor told me that I could end up in a wheelchair, and that I should seriously consider changing careers,” she recounts. “So I decided to try something that would absolutely terrify me. Stand-up comedy. It was fun and took my mind off of the seriousness of the accident. None of the things the doctor warned me of came to pass. I took care of myself and I recovered. It was from this experience that I learned that a dream can be achieved and that sometimes, it’s just better to look at life in a humorous way.”


Janyse’s acting has been honed under the guidance of Ivana Chubbuck, coach also to Oscar winners Halle Berry and Charlize Theron. She has appeared on-camera in television and film, danced professionally as a jazz dancer, and performed in musical theatre productions. Janyse is also a cartoon voiceover artist, working with clients such as Marvel Comics, The Cartoon Network, Disney, and narrating the Emmy award-winning series “Adoption Stories”.

Through her work in animation, Janyse met children through the Make-A-Wish Foundation and became inspired to create a children’s CD to help kids, titled “The Magic Of Think”. “I called it The Magic Of Think because the premise is that you can think of something positively or negatively – it’s your choice. But by thinking positively, it can help you gain courage and then if you just keep persisting you can achieve your dreams.” The album was an immediate hit with children and their parents and was honored to be chosen as a gift to the nominees for the GRAMMYS® and OSCARS®.

Janyse has received awards for her songwriting from the Hollywood Music in Media Awards, Independent Music Awards, Toronto Exclusive Magazine Awards The Song of the Year Awards. She has several of her songs placed in Film and Television, including works starring Pamela Anderson, Dean Cain, Chad Allen, Sally Pressman and more.

She has also appeared on camera on four television series The X-Files, The Outer Limits, Double Exposure and Andromeda.
