Known as one of the country’s most versatile and chameleon-like actors, David Richmond-Peck tackles a variety of film and television roles, spanning all genres, flawlessly. One of Canada’s most impressive entertainment industry exports, David has bridged both film and television across North America. Most recently, David played resistance leader Georgie Sutton on the acclaimed ABC series ‘V’, which also stars Elizabeth Mitchell and Morena Baccarin. ‘V’ follows an extraterrestrial race arrives on Earth with seemingly good intentions, only to slowly reveal their true intentions the more ingrained into society they become.
David’s impressive credits span across feature film as well. His distinct performances include a role as Agent Dom Dumare in Joe Carnahan’s ‘Smokin Aces 2: Assassins’ Ball’ (Directed by P.J. Pesce), and the polygraph operator in ‘The Day The Earth Stood Still’, starring Keanu Reeves. His memorable scene with Keanu, known as ‘The Interrogation’ became a youtube sensation before the film’s release.
David’s much talked about performance in ‘Instant’ has earned him a second nomination this year. The film, almost a one man show, follows a man who, after losing his wife, mends his broken heart by accidentally gluing himself to a kitchen counter while alone in his cabin.
Born and raised in Oakville, Ontario, David now calls Vancouver home. Personally, David is half of an entertainment power couple with his wife, producer/ director/actor and screenwriter Kelly-Ruth Mercier, who is also up for a Leo Award this year.
