Robin Gammell

54

B: September 22, 1936 in Montréal, Québec

Robin Gammell began his career as a junior ensemble member at Ontario’s Stratford Shakespeare Festival. His credits there include Robin Starveling in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Octavius in Julius Caesar, Ariel in The Tempest, and Malcolm in Macbeth, which he also played when the production was relaunched for television in 1961 with Sean Connery in the title role. This training prepared him for this early work in the dying days of television’s Golden Age when dramatic programs produced episodes that were different productions with usually wholly different casts. In these cases we have followed the title of the production with the name of program, for example, Festival, Armchair Theatre, First Person or Playdate. Robin Gammell was nominated for a Genie Award for Best Actor, at the 1st Genie Awards in 1980, for his work in the film Klondike Fever.
