About Gordon Pinsent

A forty-year veteran of theatre, film, television and radio,actor/playwright/author/director Gordon Pinsent is well known to audiences across Canada and the United States. From his many starring roles in a wide variety of television programs and feature films, we remember the recognizable characters Gordon Pinsent has created in popular Canadian culture: the title role of Quentin Durgens MP, the stuffed-shirt Member of Parliament: Will Cole in “The Rowdyman”, a sort of Tom Jones let loose in Newfoundland; John in“John and the Missus”; Edgar Sturgess, the scarlet-coated militiaman in the TV series, “AGift to Last”, written by Pinsent; Swiftwater, the Card shark in “Klondike Fever”; Sgt. Fraser Senior in “Due South”; and his GEMINI award winning performance as Duff in

Clearly, Gordon Pinsent successfully balances acting and writing. His novels, “The
Rowdyman” and “John and the Missus” were both turned into feature films, Gordon
directing the latter. “The Rowdyman” was made into a musical and presented at the
Charlottetown Festival in 1976. He has co-starred with his wife, Charmion King, in two
of his plays – “Easy Down Easy” and “Brass Rubbings”, and in “Love Letters”. Gordon
wrote and starred in the CBC Movie of the Week, “Win Again”, in which he won a
GEMINI for his writing. His memoirs, “By the Way”, were published in 1994.

Born in Newfoundland, Gordon began his career at the Manitoba Theatre Centre, which
led to roles at the Stratford Festival. This was followed by Prospero in the The Tempest
at the Vancouver Playhouse, and the leading role of Cyrano at the Stevenville Festival.
He returned to the Stratford Festival to star in Trumpets and Drums. In the U.S.A.,
Gordon starred as The President of the United States in the cult movie: Colossus the
Forbin Project, and appeared in such TV series and movies as It Takes A Thief, Silence
of the North, Young Prosecutors, Banacek, and the feature film, The Thomas Crown
Affair, among others.

Gordon Pinsent has received two ACTRA Awards for his television work; three GENIE
Awards for achievements in Canadian film; five GEMINI Awards, a DORA Award for
the stage, as well as honourary doctorates at Queens, P.E.I. University and Memorial
University, Newfoundland. He was made Officer of the Order of Canada in 1979, and
promoted to Companion within the Order in 1998.

Gordon Pinsent also played the long running character of Hap Shaughnessey in the Red
Green Show, now in its tenth season, a supporting lead in the feature film, The Shipping
News and most recently, Fallen Angel for CBS and Saint Ralph for Alliance Atlantis.
Most recently, Gordon embarked on one of his most memorable projects to date. He
wrote, directed and acted in the MOW Heyday, (a period piece set during the end of
World War II), in co-ordination with Triptych Media Inc./Pope Productions which aired
in 2006.
