Andre Clarence Noble (February 21, 1979 – July 30, 2004)[1] was a Canadian television and film actor. He was born in Centreville, Newfoundland[1] and studied acting at Sir Wilfred Grenfell College in Corner Brook from 1997 to 2001.[1] He moved to Toronto, Ontario in 2001 to pursue his career in acting.[1] In his short time living there he appeared in several films, television roles and stage productions, and co-founded a theatre group called The Young Company.[1]


He was considered a rising star on the strength of his first starring role, in the Canadian romantic drama Sugar, based on short stories by Bruce La Bruce and directed by John Palmer.[2] However, just weeks after the film's debut, Noble died of aconitine poisoning after eating some monkshood while on a hike with his aunt on Fair Island in Newfoundland.[3] He fell ill at his aunt's cabin on Fair Island, then died en route to hospital.[3] In his memory, Noble's friends and family set up a scholarship fund in his name for the Theatre Department at the Sir Wilfred Grenfell College School of Fine Arts.
