Chips Reid
Birthplace: Bishop’s Stortford, England

Acting puts you in a different space, and it takes you outside of yourself. It gives you freedom to be somebody else.”

Charles, also known as Chips is one of the GeriActors most exotic members. Although he was born in England, he considers Trinidad home and grew up there before moving to Edmonton where he received his Engineering Degree. Chips has been with the GeriActors for over 10 years and had the opportunity to star in their play “We Decide” as King Lear. Chips appreciates the challenge of learning how to interact and co-create with younger people on stage. From studying mushrooms to tai chi, Chips is always up for learning something new. His love for adventure and mischievous behavior ensure that he will have many stories to share for years to come.
