Philip Craig


B: September 3, 1950 in Bournemouth Dorset, England

Philip Craig trained at The Drama Studio, London, England before moving to Canada to pursue his acting career. Theatre credits include Henry IV Part I and II at the Stratford Festival, Journey’s End at the National Arts Centre, and Henry IV at the New York Shakespeare Festival under the direction of Des McAnuff. He also appeared in Jean Anouilh’s Antigone as Chorus, and in Peter Nichols A Day in the Death of Joe Egg as Brian, both of which earned him awards. If you’re curious about that gap in his career, he took a ten year break from 1985 to 1995 to live in Edinburgh, Scotland where he opened two restaurants. He picked up his acting career after returning to Canada.
