Biography

A prolific film actor in his native Canada, Gabriel Arcand appeared in over 40 movies beginning in the early 1970s. Some of his best known performances occurred during the 1980s in films like "Suzanne" (1980) and "Les Plouffe" (1981), both of which earned him Genie Awards honors, the Canadian film industry's equivalent of the Academy Awards. Arcand went on to win a Genie for Best Actor in a Leading Role for 1984's "Le crime d'Ovide Plouffe," before adding further prestige to his already lauded career with noteworthy performances in the films "Post Mortem" (1999), "Congorama" (2006), and "Karakara" (2012). In 2013 Arcand breathed new life into his acting career with a celebrated role as a kind-hearted lamb farmer in the rural family drama "Le démantèlement." He may have already been several decades into his career, but Arcand's highly-praised performance in the film proved he was still at the top of his game.
