Clara 'Clibby' VERRIAN, Talent Agent: 1939-2005
Talent agent and casting director carved a niche in the Canadian film industry and made it her own. 'If somebody needed 100 extras for a commercial, she could pull it off'
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Tuesday, April 19, 2005, Page S9
Toronto -- Justin LOUIS said there was something about Clibby VERRIAN's "anti-agent" persona. "There was nothing glossy or glitzy about her," Mr. Louis said.
Ms. VERRIAN, a do-it-all performer behind the camera, was an agent to budding stars, the first principal representative for such Canadian actors such as Mr. LOUIS, Sarah POLLEY and Cory HAIM. As a founder of the Toronto talent agency Faces and Places, she was also a casting director, located movie sites and supplied extras for movies, television series and commercials.
Ms. VERRIAN was born Clara HAYWARD in Peterborough, Ontario, where one of the best moves she ever made was to meet Dottie KINGSTON (now BABCOCK) in 1942. In search of a playmate, young Dottie had gone door-knocking in the neighbourhood and turned up Clara. "We were best Friends onward," Mrs. BABCOCK said.
The pair remained close throughout high school at Peterborough Collegiate Institute, where Clibby (a nickname she acquired in Grade 5) made her mark as a track-and-field star. "She was a fast runner," Mrs. BABCOCK said. "She was also the best water skier in the Peterborough area at the time."
After graduating from Peterborough Collegiate Institute in 1958, she took a year off and travelled in Europe before settling in Toronto, where she eventually got married and worked at a string of jobs. In 1980, the marriage ended and, as a single parent, she resolved to do something different. "I decided that if I had to work the rest of my life, I want to be doing something that I love," she once said. "I've always loved the movies and Hollywood."
So, never one to back away from challenges, she formed Faces and Places. "I knew no one in the business when I first started," she said in 1982. "The early days were a constant battle to prove myself."
Eventually, she proved herself and won the respect of the industry.
"Producers and casting directors had worked with Clibby so much, they trusted her," said Gail LIVINGSTONE, who worked as an assistant to Ms. VERRIAN on and off for 10 years. "If somebody needed 100 extras for a commercial, she could pull it off. "
By then, her stable of individual performers included Ms. POLLEY, Mr. LOUIS, Mr. HAIM and others. Before she moved on to other agents and bigger roles, such as The Road to Avonlea, Ms. POLLEY was cast by Ms. VERRIAN in principal roles in The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, Ramona, The Big Town, Hands of The Stranger and One Magic Christmas.
Mr. LOUIS, whose screen credits tally about 100, was cast by Ms. VERRIAN in 1986-87 in a number of productions, most notably Prom Night Queen: Hello Mary Lou. He currently stars in the television series Missing, and was recently cast as entrepreneur Donald Trump in an ABC biopic set to air in May.
"Clibby got me a lot of gigs," Mr. LOUIS said. "I needed six credits for a full Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists membership and I got all six credits with her."
Mr. HAIM was a heartthrob actor in the 1980s, before he faded into oblivion after he slipped into drug addiction following his move to Los Angeles from Toronto.
One of Ms. VERRIAN's first big productions for which she provided extras was the 1981 thriller Escape from Iran: The Canadian Caper, a television movie about the U.S.-Iranian hostage drama and the part played by Canadian ambassador Ken TAILOR/TAYLOR. Ms. VERRIAN's then-partner in the company, Bob BOLDSOVER, scoured the city for locations for that production. "Clibby would look after the Faces and I'd look after the Places," he said.
"Clibby was kind of like a pioneer in the business -- sort of the first person to provide casting facilities," Mr. LOUIS said.
In recent years, Ms. VERRIAN downsized her operations and specialized in acquiring extras for commercials. One of the most demanding was a big-budget, blacks-only Nike commercial called Ruckers Park that featured National Basketball Association star Vince Carter. " Clibby saved my ass on that commercial," said Kim EVEREST, the president of Powerhouse Casting. "We needed to fill an entire stadium to create period Harlem with 750 black extras and Clibby pulled it off. I couldn't believe it."
Faces and Places, with close to 300 clients, has been a refreshing constant on the Canadian scene for 25 years. It will continue under the management of her son D.J. VERRIAN.
"She loved her work. She couldn't believe she was paid to do what she loved," Mrs. BABCOCK said.
Clibby VERRIAN was born May 12, 1939, in Peterborough, Ontario She died in a Toronto hospital on February 18, 2005, of a heart attack. She was 65.
She is survived by sons D.J. and Derek, mother Dorothy, and sisters Millie HILL and Robbie BILISKI.
