OPENING KEYNOTE: WRINKLED HEROES
ERIC PETERSON
Monday May 16, 2011 - 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

One of Canada’s most accomplished actors, Eric Peterson has most recently been known as the loveably crusty “Oscar Leroy” in CTV’s hit comedy series Corner Gas. A winner of five Gemini Awards, a Dora Award, and the L.A. Drama Critics Award for best performance, Peterson has captured audiences during his lengthy career on stage, television and in film. His many memorable roles include the legendary World War One flying ace in Billy Bishop Goes to War, Judge Malone in This is Wonderland and left-wing lawyer Leon Robinovitch in the long-running CBC Series Street Legal. His portrayal of the 82-year-old war veteran Patrick in the critically-acclaimed play Half Life, first staged in 2005, offered a window into the world of memory loss and life in a long term care home.

The 64-year-old Peterson’s funny and wry observations on aging will help kick off this year’s Great Places to Live and Work-themed event, as the actor, who once played elderly characters as a young man, reflects on the ironies of “not growing old gracefully” himself.

Eric Peterson, actor, has inspired audiences nationally and internationally on the stage, screen, radio and television for 40 years. He was named a member of the Order of Canada in 2010 for his achievements. Born and raised in Saskatchewan, Peterson now lives in Toronto with his wife and two daughters.
