Genevieve Buechner (born November 10, 1991) is a Canadian actress. Her stepfather is folk musician Geoff Berner.



Genevieve Buechner was born in Edmonton, Alberta, to single parent mother Tea Buechner. She began to pester her mother about acting lessons when she was three. Her mother was very reluctant to encourage this interest. Genna's own grandmother had been an actress, and Genna's mother herself was in the entertainment industry as lead singer of a rock band - both of these women had found the experience in the entertainment industry to be a depressing and very hard one.

Still Genna persevered and finally her mother allowed her to take a small course in acting from the local theater - Vancouver Youth Theatre. After completing the course Genna asked if she could audition for the youth theater's acting tour. Her mother refused, explaining that as Genna had no experience; the chances were not high that she would make the selection. Later that evening the director for the tour called their home demanding to know why Genevieve Buechner had not come to the audition. A special audition was set up for her the next day, and Genna was selected as the youngest member to be part of the cast. During the tour performances, Genna was scouted by Robert Carrier and signed to Carrier Talent Management in Vancouver Canada.

A week later Genevieve was sent to audition for the lead in a Toronto Independent Film called St. Monica. Both Mother and child were utterly unprepared for the audition, and Genna showed up in dirty clothes-with unbrushed hair. Casting Director Carol Tarlington took pity on the hapless two... explained some of the rules... tidied her up and prepped her for the camera. Genevieve Buechner got the lead role at the age of ten - the first film audition that she had ever been to and was flown to Toronto within three days. The film went on to be a festival success playing across North America and being selected for the Berlin Film Festival, the Atlantic Film Festival, the Toronto Film Festival and the Vancouver Film Festival. She was nominated for a Canadian Leo Award for Best Lead performance by a female in 2003 for that role.
