Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

With his innate ability to tackle a variety of roles whether it was comedy, drama or horror, Roc LaFortune established a long career as one of Canada's most prolific character actors. Born on Dec. 21, 1956 in Lachute, Québec, Canada, LaFortune attended the National Theatre Conservatory in Paris. He began his career on stage before he started appearing in television movies and feature films like "À corps perdu" (1988) and "La sarrasine" (1992), as well as on the crime drama series "Urban Angel" (CBC, 1991-93). LaFortune padded his résumé with a string of TV roles, including a recurring part on the miniseries "Marguerite Volant" (Cité-Amérique, 1996). One of his most memorable roles was in the hit comedy saga "Les Boys" (1997), a David-and-Goliath movie about an amateur ice hockey team that, in spite of their inadequacies, beats a bigger, more successful team. He appeared in "Seducing Dr. Lewis" (2003), a comedy about residents in a tiny fishing village in France who try to lure a full-time doctor in an attempt to get a new factory in town. LaFortune continued to make inroads in feature film dramas; in 2007, he made a cameo as a hobo in the musical biopic "I'm Not There," which featured six actors,...
