North Rory Homeward
North Rory Homeward is an actor and singer who holds a goal of breaking emotional barriers and strives to spread kindness and thoughtfulness wherever he goes. North is passionate about marginalized storytelling, advocating giving more voice to marginalized communities. Though he tends to lean more toward playing cisgender characters, he enjoys playing trans roles when they come his way.
North has been seen all over Chicago storefront and independent theatre for the last several years, including his recent rocking out in Theo Ubique's Working, the thriller Veronica's Room at Madkap Theatre, and leading the cast of Southern Comfort at Pride Films and Plays as trans father figure Robert Eads. He also played many roles in shows from Shakespeare and Molière to Durang and children’s theatre in his time studying theatre and music at College of Lake County, before moving on to complete the studio program at Chicago’s Black Box Studio, under Ashley Neal and Conor Woods.
Outside of his direct career path, North has taught himself to play the ukulele and enjoys writing as a hobby, from music he sometimes shares on YouTube to monologues he hopes to someday publish in a book for actors seeking audition material. North, who dedicates his career to his late spouse Echo, looks forward to someday being an adoptive parent and to waving around a wand or a lightsaber professionally.
