Biography

'Callum Keith Rennie' was born in England, raised in Alberta, Canada and came late to acting -- he discovered theater in Edmonton at the age of 25. Originally he wanted to be a mountaineer. Some time in 1993, he got a piece of glass in his eye during a bar fight in Vancouver. No permanent harm was done, but he gave up alcohol. Currently he lives in Vancouver (circa October 1997) but plans to move to Los Angeles after his "Due South" and "Twitch City" television commitments are over. He is 37.
