About the Author

One of Canada''s most beloved and well-known actors, GORDON PINSENT was born in Newfoundland. He began his career at the Manitoba Theatre Centre, which led to roles at the famed Stratford Festival. In 1962, he made his TV debut with a guest appearance on the US series Hallmark Hall of Fame, as well as becoming a regular on the Canadian series Scarlett Hill. The following year, he played a recurring role as Mountie Sergeant Scott on the beloved children''s series The Forest Rangers. The show was a huge hit not only in Canada but around the world, and still plays in reruns today. In 1966, he landed the lead in the Canadian series Quentin Durgens, M.P. Just a short while later, Pinsent played Jamie McDonald in The Thomas Crown Affair (1968), starring Steve McQueen. Guest appearances on popular U.S. series such as Dan August, Hogan''s Heroes, Cannon and Marcus Welby followed. In 2003, Pinsent received the ACTRA Toronto Award of Excellence and in 2004, an Award of Excellence at the Banff Television Festival and was inducted in 2007 into Canada''s Walk of Fame. He continues to work steadily both on TV and in film.
