Michael Wincott

183

B: January 21, 1959 in Toronto, Ontario

Born to an English father and an Italian mother, Michael Wincott and his older brothers were raised in London, Ontario, where both he and his brother Jeff expressed an interest in drama. While Jeff excelled in athletic pursuits, Michael found himself drawn to music. He played the drums in a number of jazz bands, and learned to play the guitar and the harmonica. In high school Wincott studied drama and appeared in some student stage productions. After graduating from high school in 1977, he attended Victoria College in Toronto, where rumour has it that he took up residence in the South House on campus because that was where his idol Donald Sutherland had roomed while attending university. Michael Wincott is pictured above as Adrian Cross in the revived series, 24: Live Another Day that stars Kiefer Sutherland. Wincott turned up as an early robotic character named Old Bill in the first episode of the 2016 series, Westworld.
