Victor Garber is a Canadian actor.

Biography

Born in London, Ontario, Garber studied with the Grand Theatre and at the University of Toronto as a child, before forming folk group The Sugar Shoppe. He later branched out into stage acting, and after his success in Godspell, became a regular on Broadway, frequently appearing in shows by Stephen Sondheim.

Garber also appeared regularly on television (notably in the series Alias) in major blockbuster films including Titanic and Argo, romantic comedies (Legally Blonde) and several voice-over parts, including Kung Fu Panda 2.

Singing

A versatile veteran of stage musicals, Garber first came to the public eye playing Jesus in the original Canadian cast of Godspell and the subsequent film. He soon followed this up by playing the male lead in They're Playing Our Song, and originated the role of Anthony Hope in Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.

Garber would make later collaborations with Stephen Sondheim originating the role of John Wilkes Booth in Assassins and playing both Fredrik Egerman in A Little Night Music and Benjamin Stone in Follies. He also sang in several screen appearances, notably playing Oliver "Daddy" Warbucks in Annie.
