Victor Garber Biography

Film, stage and television actor Victor Garber stars as Jack Bristow in the engaging spy drama, Alias, a role that earned him an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.

One of Victor Garber's most notable film roles to date is his charismatic performance as the architect of the ill-fated ship in Titanic, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet. Also on the big screen he performed opposite Goldie Hawn in The First Wives Club, Tom Hanks in Sleepless in Seattle and Reese Witherspoon in Legally Blonde.

Garber's numerous television credits include Richard Benjamin's Laughter on the 23rd Floor; the ABC miniseries Life with Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows, in which he was nominated for an Emmy Award; the role of Daddy Warbucks in ABCs musical version of Annie, with Kathy Bates, Alan Cumming and Alicia Morton; Invisible Child, opposite Rita Wilson; External Affairs; and the role of Inspector Philip Millard in the Criminal Instinct Mysteries Love And Murder, Deadly Appearance, The Wandering Soul Murders and A Colder Kind Of Death, based on the novels by Gail Bowen. He also performed in ABCs The Wonderful World of Disney film Rodgers and Hammersteins Cinderella, and Let Me Call You Sweetheart, opposite Meredith Baxter. Garber received Gemini nominations for his performances in the miniseries Dieppe and the TV movie First Circle.

His episodic work includes guest starring roles on the popular series The Outer Limits and Law & Order, and a recurring role on the long running series E.N.G. Garber received an Emmy Award nomination for his guest appearance on Frasier.

Garber's stage performances are legendary. He was most recently seen portraying Horace Vandergelder in Hello Dolly. He has earned four Tony nominations for his work in Damn Yankees, Lend Me A Tenor, Deathtrap and Little Me. He performed in the workshop of Sondheim's Wiseguys, with Nathan Lane, which was directed by Sam Mendes, and with Alan Alda and Alfred Molina in the Tony Award-winning play, Art, which moved to Los Angeles following its successful six-month run at Broadways Royale Theatre. His numerous stage credits also include Arcadia, The Devil's Disciple, Noises Off and Sweeney Todd.

Garber began acting at the age of 10 in childrens productions at the Grand Theatre in his hometown of London, Ontario, Canada. At 16 he moved to Toronto, where he joined the singing group The Sugar Shoppe which were featured on the Ed Sullivan and Johnny Carson shows. One of his first film roles was for director George Bloomfield in CBCs Paradise Lost. Soon after, he landed the role of the hippie-Messiah in the Toronto production of Godspell, a role he would later reprise in the musical film version.
