Charles Dennis

Charles Dennis was born on December 16, 1946 in Toronto, Canada, where he was also raised. Dennis started his journey into acting when he was only eight on Canadian radio and he made his professional stage debut at the age of sixteen (Red Barn Theatre).  A year later he had become The Toronto Telegram's youngest columnist in their history, he covered film and theatre.  Shortly after he attended the University of Toronto where he worked towards and accomplished a Bachelor's of Arts degree, graduating in 1968.

After college Dennis moved to England to further pursue acting and writing, where he lived until 1974 then returned to Canada and the US where he continued acting and writing.

He's married to Kim Eveleth (1999- present) and they have a daughter, Ethne Bliss.  He has another daughter named Miranda Claire.
