Mini Bio (1)
Born and raised in Toronto, Bruce Lyons (birth name Bruce Watson) was bitten by the acting bug after playing "Creon" in a high school production of Jean Anouilh's "Antigone". After graduation he went to sea to gain some perspective, and then headed to university - but cut short his pursuit of a degree in philosophy at McGill University and the University of Toronto to study acting at the Stella Adler Theater Conservatory in New York for two years. In between semesters, Bruce played "The Young Collector" in "A Streetcar Named Desire" opposite Judith Light, Francis Hyland and Kenneth Welsh at Theatre Plus in Toronto. After a wild experience in which he played Macbeth in a 1981 summer production of the "Scottish Play" at American Theater for Actors in New York, Bruce was the first actor to take over the role of "Lee" from John Malkovich in Sam Shepard's iconic play "True West" in April, 1983, at the Cherry Lane Theater in New York City, opposite Dan Butler, directed by Gary Sinise. He left "True West" to do the feature comedy "Model Behavior" with Richard Bekins and Antonio Vargas, also in New York, and shortly after traveled to New Zealand with his wife, Kely Lyons, while she wrote the script of "The Navigator: A Medieval Odyssey" for director Vincent Ward. While in New Zealand he became interested in the history of temple design and the role of sacred geometry in human anatomical construction - formerly the basis of most great temple plans. Bruce returned to New Zealand in 1987 to play the role of "Connor" in "The Navigator", which had its debut screening in Official Competition at the Cannes Film Festival in 1988. After the Festival, Bruce and Kely traveled to Chartres Cathedral, a trip which Bruce counts as a key turning point in his life, describing the cathedral as having the most enlightening interior of any building on earth. Once back in New York, Bruce resumed his work on sacred geometry, a study which involved an in-depth look at the ancient civilization of Egypt, including the Pyramid Texts. Returning to film in 2008, Bruce learned to compose using Cubase, and over the past 7 years has composed a range of symphonic/ electronica pieces. Currently (2016) living in Los Angeles, Bruce is an avid ocean lover and finds the beaches of Malibu to be a real bonus in his life. He maintains a blog on sacred geometry, human harmonics and world affairs and select pieces of his music can be heard on his Soundcloud link. When time permits he is putting together a book that explores the subject of Grand Unification and its diverse and intersecting themes.
