George Groulx (June 26, 1922 – February 9, 1997) was a Canadian actor.


George Groulx was born on June 26, 1922 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.[1] He performs his classical studies at the college Cégep de Saint-Laurent, where he soon showed a strong interest in theater. He is noticed by Father Émile Legault, a theatrical animator who had founded in 1937 the pioneering company Compagnons de Saint-Laurent. In 1939, at the invitation of Father Legault and his sister Marguerite Groulx, first actress to join the cast, he joined the company. Initially assigned to various tasks, e. g. scenic painter, he soon participated in religious plays that belonged to the company's repertory, such as La Mort à cheval (1941) by Henri Ghéon. In 1941, having finished his classical studies, he studied one year at the École du meuble de Montréal and the following one at the Université de Montréal, where he graduated in 1943.

He died on February 9, 1997 in Montreal.[1]
