Biography

Canadian-born actor Simon Reynolds came to specialize in supporting and lead roles in intense, emotionally demanding material, often in the thriller or horror genres. Onscreen, his deceptively genial and placid looks often blanketed -- at closer glance -- an undercurrent of ever-present gravity and occasional menace. He was memorable as a warped murder suspect who may have offed his parents in the telemovie Deadly Betrayal: The Bruce Curtis Story (1991), appeared as a physician who is assigned to counter a widespread epidemic in the plague-themed drama Black Death (1992), and held small roles in the horror outings Gate II: Return to the Nightmare (1992), Dark Water (2005), and Saw IV (2007). ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
