Kelli Fox (younger sister)

  • Date of birth: 1964
  • Michael’s younger sister Kelli is a Canadian stage and television actress, known well for The Commish comedy TV series, the movies Timecop and Life with Mikey.

    The woman found her initial way into acting back in high school years. From her first moment on stage, Fox knew she wanted to act and the small high school production put that plan into motion. The actress is grateful for her teacher, who had connections to the professional theater in Vancouver. Kelli is also extremely thankful for her older brother, Michael, who dived into the world of acting a bit earlier than she did and managed to prove her dream can help her earn a living.

    At the beginning of her career, Kelli tried to conceal the fact she is Michael Fox’s sibling. The woman wanted to keep herself apart from the brother’s success, without taking anything for granted.

    As a director and theater maker alongside the actress, Kelli took part in the Stratford Shakespeare Festival and the Shaw Festival, engaged with the Globe Theater. She is fond of directing Shakespeare’s plays, especially Hamlet, though finding the language very challenging to explain.

    Today, Kelli is fighting against the tendency of underestimating actors over forty. The woman is convinced age cannot restrict actors’ chances to work in the industry.

    Why does one magazine article has Michael mention only his 1st three children from him & his wife, and then added the younger daughter separate?
