Currently based in California, Helen Johns is a British actress with dual citizenship of Canada. Perhaps, you have watched her as Mrs. Barry, Diana's mother on Anne with an E.
Dark-haired actress, Helen Johns, played Eliza Barry, a mum of two daughters; Diana Barry (Dalila Bela) and Minnie May Barry (Ryan Kiera Armstrong) on Anne with an E opposite onscreen husband, Mr. Barry, portrayed by Jonathan Holmes. Interestingly, it was whilst working on the series, Helen became a mother for the first time IRL.
Blissfully Married With A Son; Helen Johns' Husband & Family
Born and raised in the UK near Windsor, Helen Johns has been happily married to her husband, Mr. Parish for years. Helen and her husband whose first name isn't disclosed yet are also parents to an adorable son named Jules Parish whom they welcomed in October 2018
Helen happily shared the news on the birth of her Libra son on social media with a picture of her small yet sweet family. Jules was born whilst the actress was working on Anne with an E in-between season two and three. Johns also happily shared her gratitude towards her co-stars, husband and the casting director of making her work flexible as a new mother on the set.
In the same post shared in September 2019 on Instagram, Helens also expressed about the issues of maternity and paternity leave faced by workers and how women are compelled to get back to work instantly after giving birth in the States where she has been residing since 2017. Thankfully, the situations were pleasant for Helen. Not to mention, her beloved caring husband was allowed to visit Helen with their son on the set.
Additionally, Helen's husband is actually so in love with his gorgeous wife that Mr. Parish never misses an opportunity to notice the actress's makeover and hairstylist whenever she is on the TV. Aw.
Helen Johns' Heritage & Ethnicity; She Is British/Canadian
As fans watched the TV star on Anne with an E, they must have noticed the thick accent of the actress. And, like we already mentioned, Helen Johns is a British by birth and nationality. The actress's mother, Mrs. Johns, however, was born and partly raised in Quebec Canada and thus, Helen gained her Canadian citizenship from her mother's side.
Both sides of Helen's families are from the United Kingdom/Great Britain, as the actress revealed herself in an interview. Not to mention, John's grandmother belonged to the Welsh community and thus, she carries the heritage of being half Welsh from her grandmother's side.
Fun facts; Helen despises the belief that British people have bad teeth. And although Johns might be moving around the world a lot because of her work, the actress is highly based in California and Quebec.
Career & Earning Of Helen Johns; How Rich Is She?
Like many stars in the acting field, Helen Johns figured out to be an actress at a young age of only three when she would record herself and make her family watch it or listen. As going around telling herself to everyone that she would be an actress one day, her comprehensible family joined Helen to Redroofs Theatre School after she turned five whilst she would also take part in the plays in her school.
As a child, Johns took part in popular stories such as Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz and Violet Beauregarde in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. After finishing school, Johns attended Mountview Academy of Dramatic Arts where she was led by EastEnders actor, Andrew Jarvis. At Mountview, Helen grew more interested and prioritized on Shakespeare and Chekhov's works.
Taking baby steps into her acting career, Helen then began working as an actor and voice actors and it didn't take her long to land on her first job in a short film based on schoolgirls being bullied. And, aside from Anne with an E where she co-starred Amybeth McNulty, Lucas Jade Zumann, Geraldine James, Corrine Koslo, R.H. Thomson, and Stephen Tracey, Helen is also known for her works in Space Janitors, Murdoch Mysteries, Mrs. America, and Charlotte.
And, with such a remarkable career in the acting field, Helen can be considered to have earned no less than $50,000. The actress, however, lives a humble life whilst spending most of her earning on travel.
