Biography: Bruce Harwood was born in North Vancouver, BC on April 29, 1963. He has a BFA degree in acting from UBC. After graduating in '86, he joined the UBC's summer theatre repertory company composed of graduate students. It was hard work, putting in six-day weeks for minimum wage to get theatre experience.
HIs break came in January of '87, when he was asked back to UBC to take the lead in Moliere's 17th century play. The School for Wives. Arnolphe, the leading male character, is an old fool who thinks he can train his young ward to be his perfect wife. It's a huge and demanding part, for Arnolphe has nearly half of all the lines in the play. A casting director in the audience was delighted by Harwood's performance and had him audition for EarthStar Voyager. The producers also liked what they saw, and Harwood began his professional career with as Dr. Leland Eugene of the EarthStar Voyager. This led to other parts, including a recurring guest spot on McGyver -- and to his most famous role to date: John Fitzgerald Byers of the X-Files and the Lone Gunmen series.
Mr. Harwood is a dedicated supporter of Amnesty International, loves reading, skiing, a wide variety of music, and classic movies.
