About: Beverley Elliott grew up watching ‘The Carol Burnett Show’ and dreaming of being on TV. Born in the booming metropolis of Listowel, Ontario, famous for its Campbell’s Soup factory, Beverley shocked her parents in her 20s by giving up a glamorous secretarial career to become a singer and actor.
Her path to fame and fortune began with a number of exciting opportunities, including a stint at the Pacific National Exhibition in a theatre sports show called ‘The Stock Report’ dressed as a chicken.
For the past 30 years, Beverley has been based in Vancouver and has over 100 film and TV credits. She is well known around the world for her recurring role as “Granny” on ABC’s hit series, ONCE UPON A TIME.

Beverley has also been a TV series regular in MYSTERIOUS WAYS, HARPERS ISLAND, HOPE ISLAND, KINGDOM HOSPITAL, and BORDERTOWN. Lately she has starred in a string of HALLMARK and LIFETIME movies.
In addition to her film and TV work, Beverley is a successful singer and songwriter. She describes her music as earthy, inspiring folk with a pop twist. Beverley has released four CDs: Yellow Dress (solo), The Sweetest Day (with her group, August) and two children’s CDs – Dream Child and Magic Carpet Ride. Her children’s CDs have been used to soothe sick kids at children’s health care facilities including Ronald McDonald House and Canuck Place. Her brand new CD Sunday Morning, will be available soon. Beverley performs regularly in concert, at festivals and at benefits.
