Cyndi was originally led toward acting from an early age and studied for 6 years at The Toronto School of Drama for stage, improv and radio technique. There is no doubt that her parents were huge influences as she was introduced to the entertainment business observing her father, Bill Richards, musical director and well know jazz and studio violinist on the Canadian scene and her mother, Billie Mae Richards, who created within a lengthy career, the much loved voice of 'Rudolph' in the 1964 Christmas classic with Burl Ives. Cyndi has the love of performing in her DNA.
