BIOGRAPHY:

Caroline Dhavernas is a Canadian actress, best known in the United States as Jaye from the short-lived television series Wonderfalls on Fox. She also starred as Dr. Lily Brenner in the ABC medical drama Off the Map. She currently costars as Dr. Alana Bloom in the NBC horror drama Hannibal.She began her career at the age of 8, dubbing voices for television productions such as Babar. At the age of 12 she began her acting career in the film Comme un Voleur (1990).
Dhavernas portrayed swimmer Marilyn Bell in the made-for-television movie Heart: The Marilyn Bell Story (1999). She trained for 2 months with the Pointe-Claire Swim Club to convincingly portray Marilyn Bell who was the first to cross 32-mile Lake Ontario in 1954. Other notable films have included a leading role in Edge of Madness (2002), and supporting roles in Out Cold (2001) and Lost and Delirious (2001). She also had a notable role on Law & Order as a closeted, gay teenager who killed her girlfriend in the episode "Girl Most Likely".
Her highest-profile work to date is the portrayal of Jaye Tyler, the central character in Wonderfalls. Jaye is an over-educated underachiever from a wealthy family, who lives in a trailer park and works at the Wonderfalls Gift Emporium, a Niagara Falls gift shop. The show's premise is that Jaye is spoken to by inanimate objects, which encourage her to help others. Dhavernas has described the show as being like "Touched by an Angel on acid". The show received widespread critical praise, but Fox cancelled the show after only four episodes aired. Millions of fans signed an on-line petition with the hope that Fox would continue the show, and as a result 20th Century Fox released the DVD with all 13 completed episodes. She did her own voice-overs for the French translation of Wonderfalls.
Since the cancellation of Wonderfalls, Dhavernas has continued to appear in Canadian-made features, such as Niagara Motel and These Girls. She also appears in Hollywoodland (2006) about the death of actor George Reeves, as well as Breach (2007).
Dhavernas also took the lead role in Surviving My Mother (which went under the working title of The Yellow Woman), a movie directed by Émile Gaudreault which premiered at the Festival des films du monde of Montreal on 28 August 2007. The wider theatrical release was 2 November 2007. In 2008 Dhavernas starred in Passchendaele, a film written and directed by Paul Gross about the Battle of Passchendaele. Passchendaele accounted for half of 2008's box office revenue from made-in-Canada anglophone films and as of 2009 is the most expensive film in Canadian history.
"It's a beautiful film and I'm really, really happy to be part of it. It's about Battle of Passchendaele, which was a very important battle for Canadians and it's a big part of our history. It was just so amazing to be privileged to live a little part of that history."
Recent projects include The Cry of the Owl, a movie adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's novel of the same name, and the popular Quebec comedy De père en flic. She also appeared in the first and last episodes of HBO's miniseries The Pacific, produced by Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks, and a guest role on Law & Order: Criminal Intent, where she played Maya in the episode "Love Sick" in May 2010.
In 2012, audiences saw her in Martin Villeneuve's Mars et Avril, a science fiction film based on the graphic novels of the same name.
She has been cast as the female lead, Dr. Alana Bloom in Hannibal, which reunites her with Wonderfalls creator Bryan Fuller.
