Biography

Jeremy Akerman traveled one of the most unusual roads into show business in memory. Born in Alvechurch, England, he moved to Canada and began his professional life not on-stage or in front of movie cameras, but in politics, as a leader of the Nova Scotia New Democratic Party. Akerman commenced film roles in the early '90s with a series of Canadian and U.S. productions. These included: Pit Pony (1997), The Christmas Shoes (2002), The Riverman (2004), and Just Buried (2007). ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
