TriviaHe is an avid musician and relaxes by singing and playing his electric guitar. Auditioned for the parts of Dr. Jeffrey Geiger in "Chicago Hope" (1994) and Mike Ryan in "Almost Perfect" (1995). Owns the tuxedo he wore in Treacherous Beauties (1994) (TV). Loves to pepper his speech with sound effects and foreign accents. Won a Gemini (the Canadian Emmy) for Best Performance by an Actor in a Guest Role for his performance of Caleb Stokes in "Road to Avonlea" (1989) in 1995. Bruce was also nominated for a Gemini for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role for his performance of Dr. Willem Hooft in The Little Kidnappers (1990) (TV) in 1990. Initially, Bruce refused his breakthrough role in "St. Elsewhere" (1982) because he was filming the movie Another Chance (1989) but managed to work on both jobs simultaneously for several weeks. Lived in a two-bedroom apartment in Laurel Canyon after moving to L.A. and drove a 1972 Toyota pick-up truck. Bruce didn't own an operable television set for many years after his move to L.A. Auditioned in 1982 for an important part in Psycho II (1983). Was working on a drilling crew in northern Alberta when a director called with a part in the musical Cruel Tears. Played a life-sized puppet in best friend Norman Foote's earliest shows for children. Bruce attended The American Academy of Dramatic Arts in NYC for a full year in 1980-1981. He lived on Bleecker St. in Greenwich Village and used a skateboard as transportation. Had his first big screen role in the pilot of the HBO series "The Hitchhiker" (1983). He came to Los Angeles in 1983 to dub dialog in "The Hitchhiker" (1983), where he "conditionally" acquired his first agent and got the lead in "Legmen" (1984) -- all within a week. He auditioned for the lead in Falconer in 1984 but was dubbed too youthful looking for the part. Lost a front tooth in a tussle some years ago and cheerfully removed it for his part in The Sweet Hereafter (1997). During his year with "Nowhere Man" (1995), Bruce became an enthusiastic golfer and occassionally participates in celebrity tournaments. When Bruce was a child, he rarely watched television since it was rationed, and he saved up his half-hours to view "ABC's Wide World of Sports" (1961) on weekends. Bruce dislikes scary films and -- as a child -- was even frightened by the monkeys in The Wizard of Oz (1939). Has two younger sisters: Kelly (a nurse) and Lynn (a mother and an activist). Left handed. First became interested in acting when he saw Brad Dourif's performance as Billy Bibbit in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975). He debuted as an actor swinging across stage à la Tarzan in a theater production at UBC. Bruce began his professional acting career in the theatre in Vancouver and didn't decide to act for sure until after his first professional play.
