In October 2017, our community suffered an enormous loss when legendary actor John Dunsworth passed away suddenly. John was a pillar of the Nova Scotia film & television industry. He was incredibly talented, kind and funny. John was a mentor to many, and he generously made time for others.
Screen Nova Scotia created and screened this memorial video tribute at the Screen Nova Scotia Awards Gala on May 16th, which includes scenes from some of John’s most iconic roles, as well as interview clips and behind the scenes footage. The video was introduced by John’s Trailer Park Boys co-stars, Robb Wells and Pat Roach, and was followed by ACTRA Maritimes announcing the creation of the John Dunsworth Screen Actor’s Fund, which will support the professional development of Nova Scotia performers.
The video was produced by Geoff D’Eon (Pilot Light Productions) and edited by Sarah Byrne. Please watch and share, as we remember an actor, husband, father, teacher, and friend to all.
Thank you, John Dunsworth. With love from all of us.Report Story
