He was originally from Bridgewater, N.S., and a big part of the Nova Scotia acting community for decades.
Besides the TPB, John Dunsworth’s acting credits included the Syfy series based on the Stephen King novel “The Colorado Kid,” ‘Haven.’ Which was filmed here in NS for five seasons.
He discovered a 10 year old Ellen Page while on the Canadian historical drama series “Pit Pony.”
