Nathaniel Arcand


B: November 13, 1971 in Edmonton, Alberta

Nathaniel Arcand is a Plains Cree (Nehiyaw) from the Alexander First Nation Reserve. Bitten by the acting bug at just 5 years of age when he saw a Bruce Lee movie, he was discovered by a talent agent and two weeks later he had his first professional job. He had acted in school before that. A small break came when he was cast in the role of Tree-Climber in 1994`s Savage Land but it wasn’t until he landed a role in the television series North of 60, playing William MacNeil, that his career really took off. He plays Scott Cardinal on the series, Heartland. Two Indians Talking won the 2010 Vancouver International Film Festival Most Popular Canadian Film Award.
