Meet Caroline Stokes, a local actress-artist from Edmonton who wants you to feel good! His beloved characters Doug Carl and Wendy with a Smile (to name a few) want him too. While she enjoys performing on stage, she has found a niche online to celebrate talent and “normalize awkwardness” with her well-meaning series of #CarolineSideBySide moves. During the pandemic, her passion made national news and continues to be widely shared as people find solace in her comedic, uplifting and colorful content – check out her remakes of The Queen’s Gambit and The Handmaid’s Tale! Whether she’s performing live or behind a camera, one thing is for sure … you have to be kind.
