Glen Gould (born June 6, 1972 in Membertou, Nova Scotia) is an award-winning Indigenous Canadian actor, director and producer of Mi'kmaq and Italian[1] descent.

Career[edit]

Gould began performing professionally in Tomson Highway's theatrical troupe, Native Earth Performing Arts[2] (to which Billy Merasty had referred him),[3] and in Theatre New Brunswick;[4] however, his career went on hiatus in 1992 when his parents were killed in a car accident.[4]

Gould resumed performing in 1994,[4] and has subsequently appeared in many Canadian television programs, including Blackstone,[5] North of 60 and Cardinal, and films, including Rhymes for Young Ghouls[1] and North Mountain.

In 2011, Gould won the Outstanding Performance Award at the Atlantic Film Festival for his role in the film Charlie Zone.[3]

Family[edit]

Gould's uncle was Donald Marshall Jr., whose wrongful conviction for murder occurred the day before Gould's birth: Gould's pregnant mother was so shocked by the verdict that she went into labor with him.[3] Gould's first acting role was a minor part in the 1989 film adaptation of Michael Harris's 1986 book Justice Denied, which explored the events leading to Marshall's conviction.[1]

Gould's grandfather was Donald Marshall Sr.[6]
