Vale – Bruce Gray

Longtime Canadian film and television actor Bruce Gray, known for Traders and Medium, has passed away.

Gray’s lengthy television resume includes the 1996 series Traders, in which he played the machiavellian Adam Cunningham, as well as a mini-run in supernatural crime series Medium, playing the father of Jake Weber’s character. Among other television appearances, Mr Gray guested in Murder She Wrote, Melrose Place, Babylon 5, Charmed and Castle.

In film, Mr Gray had his first screen credit in the mid 60’s, in Adulterous Affair, while later roles built on typecasting in a variety of military or political figures: notably, he played the President in Leslie Nielsen’s Spy Hard, Sky Marshall Deines in Paul Verhoeven’s Starship Troopers, the father of the groom in My Big Fat Greek Wedding, a congressman in Evan Almighty, and supporting roles in Crimson Peak and Chateau Laurier among his recent projects.

Bruce Gray was 81 when he passed on December 13th.

We want to hear from you!!! Leave us your thoughts here!!!

Never blessed with a body worthy of a porn star, nor being the heir to a wealthy industrialists fortune, nor suffering the tragedy of having his parents murdered outside a Gotham theater, Rodney is, contrary to popular opinion, neither Ron Jeremy, JD Rockefeller, or Batman. As a serious appreciator of film since 1996, Rodney's love affair with the medium has continued with his online blog, Fernby Films, a facility allowing him to communicate with fellow cineasts in their mutual love of all things movie.
