Fletcher Markle

Fletcher Markle, film director,

B: March 27, 1921 in Winnipeg, Manitoba
D: May 23, 1991 in Pasadena, California

Fletcher Markle began his career in radio the late 1930s and early 1940s in Vancouver, British Columbia. He was part of a loosely knit group that included John Drainie, Lister Sinclair, Bernard Braden and Alan Young. With the outbreak of WWII in 1939, the group began to gravitate to Toronto. Fletcher became one of about 70 Canadian writers who wrote scripts for Andrew Allan’s Stage series on CBC radio, one of the major factors in CBC’s drama revolution. He also wrote for a weekly wartime drama series called Comrades in Arms. Markle moved on to New York City where, among other things, he contributed to the CBS radio anthology, Studio One, which he later brought to television. These are his credits as a Director.

B: September 2, 1964 in Beirut, Lebanon

There are probably enough people living in North York, a suburb of Toronto, who claim to have seen, gone to Avondale High with, or been served in a restaurant by Keanu Reeves to fill the world’s largest cinema. Oddly enough the chances that he started out in Toronto are probably the same as the chances that he was conceived at all. His family history is a bit complicated. Keanu Reeves made his directorial debut with the film Man of Tai Chi, which screened at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival. In August 2019 it was announced that a new Matrix movie was in the works at Warner Bros. In 2021 Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss reprised their roles as Neo and Trinity and Lana Wachowski wrote and directed the 2.5 hour Matrix – The Resurrections.

Victor Garber

Victor Garber
This photo of Victor Garber was scanned from an autographed original in the Northernstars Collection.

B: March 16, 1949 in London, Ontario

Victor Garber was interested in acting from a very early age and was involved with children`s theatre at the age of 9. At 15 he became the youngest member of the University of Toronto’s Hart House troupe. At 18 he formed a folk band, The Sugar Shoppe which signed a recording contract with Capital Records, and enjoyed appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show and The Tonight Show. A chance visit by the band to the rock opera, Godspell in Los Angeles re-ignited his love of the stage. After the band broke up he returned to Toronto and joined Toronto Workshop Productions. Shortly after he landed the lead for the Toronto production of Godspell, film director, David Greene happened to attend the opening night and when he was hired to direct the film version he hired Garber to reprise his role of Jesus for the screen. He was nominated for Emmy Awards for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Mini-series or a Movie for his role in Life with Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows, and Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for an appearance on an episode of Frasier. Garber played Canadian diplomat Ken Taylor in the Academy Award-winning film, Argo. He plays the role of Harry Svensson in the TV series Family Law.
