Born in Digby, Nova Scotia and raised in Toronto, Ontario, Sterling Jarvis started performing at a young age.

On stage, Sterling performed as “Simba” and “Pumba” in the Toronto production of Disney’s The Lion King, as well as “Crooks” in the CanStage production, Of Mice and Men. He recently appeared as “Duff” in the hit musical by Queen, We Will Rock You, a show that’s been described as an unstoppable juggernaut of entertainment and played to over one million audience members in its two-and-a-half year run.
Sterling has lent his voice to various charitable events, including the Easter Seals Telethon, The Actors’ Fund, Run for the Cure, Theatre by the Bay, and is featured on billboards and in public service announcements across the city of Toronto, promoting Toronto Police Services’ and Cybertip’s internet safety campaign, “Every Keystroke Has A Consequence.”
