From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Colm Feore (born August 22, 1958 at Boston, Massachusetts) is an American/Canadian actor raised in Canada of Irish and Italian extraction. Feore grew up in Windsor, Ontario. After graduating from Ridley College in St. Catharines, Ontario, he attended the National Theatre School in Montreal, Quebec. When not filming in exotic locations around the world, Feore lives with his wife, choreographer Donna Feore, and their three children, in Stratford, Ontario.

Feore honed his acting skills as a member of the Acting Company of the Stratford Festival, North America’s largest classical repertory theatre, located in Stratford, Ontario, Canada. He spent 14 seasons at Stratford where he rose from bit parts to leading roles, including Romeo, Hamlet, Richard III, and Cyrano.

In Canada, Feore’s most famous role was as Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau in the critically-acclaimed television mini-series Trudeau, role for which he won a Gemini Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Dramatic Program or Mini-Series.

Outside Canada, Feore has appeared in numerous film and television roles. The actor’s classical theatre background gives his screen personae added depth and motivation. Another bonus is Feore’s experience with stage sword fights. He was able to put this skill to good use in the 1992 episode of Forever Knight, Bloody Money, where he and his good friend and fellow Stratford colleague Geraint Wyn Davies took advantage of their skill with a sword and added a terrific fight scene just for fun. More recently, from an interview with columnist Richard Ouzounian, Toronto Star, to publicize The Chronicles of Riddick, the actor told this anecdote: “They’d come to me during Riddick and say, ’There’s this big fight scene ahead and we’ve suddenly decided it would be great if you could be in it … but we’ve only got five minutes to rehearse.’ … I’d say to them, ‘ … Give me the sword and point me toward the leading man. I won’t kill him.’”
