He spent his first 13 years growing up in Toronto then moved to Ottawa for a year and then back to Toronto. He was spotted by casting director Diane Polley when he was in a school production of The Wizard of OZ. Until she suggested he audition for Anne of Green Gables, Crombie never considered acting professionally. He graduated in 1995 from University of Toronto’s Victoria College.
