Bit by the acting bug at the age of 14, Merrilyn Gann has been performing ever since. With many roles in television, film and theatre on her resume, Gann returns for a third season as Mayor Rose Abbott - and Dr. Abbott's better half - in the acclaimed Monday night drama "Everwood."
A native of Vancouver, British Columbia, Gann is a co-founder of the Northern Light Theatre in Edmonton and Bard on the Beach in Vancouver and has performed in numerous stage productions in many prominent theatres across Canada. Gann is also an avid singer. Along with her sister, Angela, and best friend, Kathy, Gann fulfills her love for singing by performing in her accapella group, Kamerran.
Gann's television credits include guest-starring roles in "Glory Days," "The X-Files" and "Beyond Belief." Film credits include "Heart of the Sun," "Falling In Love...Again" and "Best in Show."
She received her Masters of Fine Arts from the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. When not filming "Everwood" in Salt Lake City, Utah, Gann can be found gardening and spending time with her two sons in Vancouver.
