Timothy Webber

 

Timothy was born “away” (i.e. far from the maritime homelands), scion of a Nova Scotian mother and a Newfoundland father. When he was two, his family returned to the east coast, where he stayed until he was twenty. Son (and grandson) of a preacher, he managed to glean a fine classical education (including latin and greek), starting with memorizing large tracts of the King James Version. This, he feels, has served him well in his chosen profession. While considering following in the footsteps of his forefathers, he took the fateful step of joining an amateur theatre company at Memorial University of Newfoundland. While both paths promised rewarding journeys of the heart and spirit, the transition to the more dramatic of the two was swift and certain. What followed were three years at the Dome Theatre School in Montreal. After graduation,
he began plying his trade during the then-infancy of the film and television industry in Canada. Thirty-five years later he looks back on a career that, despite some lean years, has served him well. He has worked on hundreds of television episodics and mini-series, scores of feature films, and even found time to squeeze in some theatre. Highlights include: “Warm Wind in China” at the Neptune Theatre in Halifax, “Gulls” at Festival Antigonish, and most recently, “Mourning Dove” for GCTC in Ottawa. In television he as worked on many series in Montréal, Toronto, Vancouver, and Calgary. Three episodes of “X-Files”; “Stargate”, “Twilight Zone”, “DaVinci’s Inquest”, and too many more to list, have all had the alleged benefits of his talents. He spent six years on the iconic hit series “North of 60”, was a regular on “Men In Trees”, and is now happily ensconced in the new CBC series, “Arctic Air”. Some feature film highlights are: “The Grey Fox”, “Ticket to Heaven”, “The Wars”, “One
Magic Christmas”, “My Father’s Angel” (Genie Award Nominee), “Married Life”, and most recently, “Seventh Son”, where he was fortunate to work with one of his longtime heroes, Jeff Bridges. He has received three Gemini Award nominations, one Genie Award nomination, and (now) three Leo Award nominations, including a win for his work on “Cold Squad”. Nearly twenty years ago, Timothy moved to a small rural community northwest of Vancouver, surrounded by some of the finest salmon fishing beaches in the world. He’s caught some fish, released many more, raised some children, and built a few houses. Timothy is a long-time officer of the Royal Canadian Legion, and a past officer of the Sunshine Coast Salmon Enhancement Society.
