Bold, brave work

with a strong social responsibility

Three main components for the company's ethos were formed:

 All actors and creatives working on the project must be paid fairly for their work and treated with respect. This includes diversity awareness both in casting and creating the project.

 

The project must be boundary-pushing. Whether it is a world premiere, a rarely seen genre or style, or a piece that treads new social and political ground, the project must be bringing something definitively new to the table

 

 

The project must be financially viable.

Producer Antony James and actors Oli Higginson and Meaghan Martin founded 3 hearts canvas in early 2019 with a passion to excavate the '3 hearts' of theatre, film, and music in search for bold, risk-taking new work that could be produced ethically, sensitively, and with a strong social responsibility.

Our ethos doesn't prescribe what a project should be or 'look like'. It could be a musical, a Greek tragedy, a silent film, or a piece of music composition. Provided it excites us and follows these 3 points - WE'RE IN!

Originally from Las Vegas, Nevada, Meaghan is an American actress best known for starring as Tess Tyler in Disney's hit films Camp Rock and Camp Rock 2. Meaghan went on to star as Jo in Mean Girls 2 for Paramount, as well as the cult-hit films Dear Lemon Lima and Geography Club, alongside a guest star role in House. Meaghan went on to star as Bianca Stratford in the critically-acclaimed TV adaptation of 10 Things About You for ABC Family. For her performance in the series, The New York Times called Meaghan 'the high point of an excellent ensemble'. Meaghan also played Julie 2 in numerous seasons of MTV's Awkward. In 2016, Meaghan relocated to London to train further as an actor at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA).

 

After graduating, Meaghan starred in The Actor's Nightmare at the Park Theatre in July-August 2019, with The Stage praising Meaghan's 'strong stage debut'. Michael Billington in The Guardian 

complimented Meaghan's 'chilling' performance in the piece, playing a collapsing stand-up with a 'marvellous mix of ingratiation and panic'.

 

Meaghan went on to appear in the award-winning short films Unstable Bitches, Wives of the Landed Gentry and the topical Bad News opposite Edward Hogg which premiered at the London Independent Film Festival at Vue Cinema West End in early 2020. She also appeared in Naked Times, a bold satire directed by Jake Kuhn which premiered at the Cannes Straight 8 Film Festival this year. 

 

Following her hugely popular performance in the groundbreaking video game Until Dawn, Meaghan has also worked continually in voiceover and motion capture, lending her voice and likeness to several major video games. She continues to voice the character Naminé in the Kingdom Hearts franchise and recently played Henrietta in Kosmokrats alongside Bill Nighy.

 

Meaghan is currently appearing in the new radio drama series Hell Cats, directed by BAFTA award-winner Kate Saxon. The series also features Erin Doherty, Michelle Fox, and Jonathan Bailey, and was a Sunday Times Critics' Pick.

In addition to acting, Meaghan has a strong passion for writing and directing. Hugely interested in people, culture, and politics, she is currently completing a second degree in Anthropology & Environmental Sustainability which she hopes will further her ability to create important, interesting, and relevant art.

Meaghan is represented by Mildred Yuan at United Agents LLP.
