After spending 13 seasons at the Stratford Festival—where he played every role from Macbeth, Coriolanus, Hamlet, Romeo, and Richard III to Cyrano de Bergerac and Henry Higgins—he turned to television, stealing scenes in 24, Law & Order SVU, The West Wing, Slings and Arrows, and, most recently, Showtime’s The Borgias. His film career has included remarkable performances in Canadian critical hits (Trudeau, Thirty-Two Short Films About Glenn Gould, The Red Violin, Bon Cop, Bad Cop, The Trotsky), drama (The Insider, Clint Eastwood’s The Changeling) and action (Face/Off, Thor and The Amazing Spider-Man 2).
Colm Feore takes on the title role in King Lear (May 5 - October 10) and plays the lead in George Farquhar's The Beaux' Stratagem (July 31 - October 11) at this year's Stratford Festival.
