(February 9, 2024 – Toronto, ON) Equally at home on the stage and in front of the camera, Maurice Dean Wint was born in Leicestershire, England. His family moved to Canada in 1967 and he started acting on the stage and in television after completing his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Drama at York University. He has been on the small screen pretty much non-stop ever since his first appearance in the Canadian cop series Night Heat in 1987. His stage work includes Michael Healey’s Courageous, a social satire set at the marriage registry at Toronto’s Old City Hall produced by Toronto’s Taragon Theatre and Edmonton’s Citadel Theatre. It was named best new production at the Dora Awards in 2011 and Wint won for Outstanding Performance in a Featured Role/Ensemble. Wint also played Othello for A Taste of Shakespeare, a series of DVDs made for the library and educational market by the Toronto-based non-profit Eugenia Educational Foundation.
