Personal Quote:

[on Sanctuary (2008)] We are a one-hundred percent independent Canadian television series. I think that's an anomaly in this country, and probably around the world in most countries. To have a television show that doesn't have the backing of a major studio or a major network is really unusual. See more »

Trivia:

Has appeared in episodes entitled "Avatar" of two different series: The X-Files: Avatar (1996) and Stargate SG-1: Avatar (2004). See more »

Star Sign:

Virgo
