Gabrielle has been acting since she was seventeen and has shared the screen with an impressive list of talented actors. Following a wealth of roles in top Canadian and American shows, Gabrielle landed a lead in CTV's Corner Gas - the highest rated comedy program in Canadian television history. It is currently the most watched comedy series in the country with an average of 1.6 million viewers per episode, making Gabrielle Miller a household name.
The half-hour comedy centers around the fictional small town of Dog River, Saskatchewan, and the lives of Brent LeRoy, who runs the gas station; and Gabrielle's character Lacey Burrows, who owns the coffee shop; as well as some other very colourful local folks. The show has enjoyed five successful seasons on CTV and Corner Gas started airing in the United States last September.
Both Gabrielle and the show have received numerous awards and accolades. The show has won six Canadian Comedy Awards, six Geminis (including Best Ensemble performance in 2007) and five Leos. With 24 award nominations over the years, Gabrielle has garnered the Leo Award two years consecutively, 2005 and 2006 for Music, Comedy, or Variety Program or Series: Best Performance or Host(s) as well as a nomination in the same category in 2008. She also received two other nominations: one for a Canadian Comedy award for Pretty Funny Performance and a Gemini for Best Ensemble Performance in a Comedy Program or Series. Gabrielle was also voted Favourite Canadian Female Star by TV Guide's '2006 Readers Poll'.
Gabrielle also played Bobbi Briggs, a newlywed and newcomer to Vancouver in the critically acclaimed Robson Arms. This half hour comedy was a series of voyeuristic snapshots into the private lives of the various residents living in an apartment block in downtown Vancouver called the Robson Arms. Gabrielle won a 2007 Leo Award for Best Supporting Performance by a Female in a Dramatic Series.
Although these roles keep Gabrielle very busy, she also finds time to support worthwhile causes, one of which is very close to her heart: Vela Microboard. Vela Microboard is a registered non-profit organization dedicated to exploring, facilitating and supporting innovative community living options for people with disabilities (www.mircroboard.org). Gabrielle and her family helped develop the Shanti Miller Friendship Society, the first Microboard in British Columbia in 1989, for her sister Shanti who lives with cerebral palsy. Gabrielle is a member of her sister's Microboard as well as the spokeswoman for the Vela Microboard Association. There are now over 300 Microboards in British Columbia.
Gabrielle has graced the covers of many Canadian magazines including Enroute, Modern Dog, TV Week, Alive, Opulence, Vancouver View, Vancouver Lifestyles and Shared Vision to name a few. Plus articles on Gabrielle's charity work, fashion and healthy lifestyle choices have appeared in Reader's Digest, Chatelaine, Glow, Elle, Chocolate and Wish.
Gabrielle has five siblings and grew up living in Vancouver and moved during her teenage years to White Rock. A new part-time resident of Saskatchewan, Gabrielle also shares her time between Los Angeles and Vancouver and enjoys the healthy lifestyle all three cities provide. She loves to hike and walk her dog. She also works out regularly with her boxing coach and Pilates instructor.
