TORONTO, ON – Montreal-born actor Emily Hampshire will arrive in Toronto next month to celebrate the world premiere of My Awkward Sexual Adventure at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), alongside her co-stars Jonas Chernick, Vik Sahay and Sarah Manninen.

Hampshire plays the female lead role of Julia, a complex, sexually charged exotic dancer who is enlisted by Jordan Abrams (Chernick), a reserved accountant, to help him gain sexual experience in a desperate attempt to win back his unsatisfied ex-girlfriend (Manninen).

“Shooting My Awkward Sexual Adventure was quite the remarkable experience for me. This was a gift of a role and working with Sean Garrity changed me as an actor. I’m thrilled the film is premiering at TIFF,” said Hampshire. "I am really excited to screen it with an audience."

The actress has been busy lending her talents to a long list of projects. She is currently promoting her latest role in David Cronenberg’s Cannes 2012 celebrated drama Cosmopolis, where she stars alongside Robert Pattinson. She also recently wrapped filming the drama All the Wrong Reasons, co-starring Cory Monteith of Glee. In the fall, she will begin shooting a Filmax feature horror film The Returned, directed by Manuel Carballo (Exorcismus, 2010), the film will also star Kris Holden Reid and Shawn Doyle.

Hampshire has been recognized for many of her roles, both in film and television. In May 2012 during the Cannes Film Festival, Canada’s leading luxury jeweller Birks presented Hampshire (alongside Sarah Gadon) with the first Birks Canadian Diamond, an award celebrating individuals whose professional accomplishments allow Canada to shine.

Hampshire’s body of work also includes a starring role Jacob Tierney’s comic noir thriller Good Neighbours (2010) and indie-comedy The Trotsky (2009). She  also received a Gemini Award in 2001 for her performance in the television series Made in Canada (CBC), and has been recognized by the Canadian Academy of Film and Television with three Genie nominations for her roles in the films Snow Cake (2006), Blood (2004) and A Problem with Fear (2003).
