Brent Carver

Brent Carver

Actor Brent Carver, a veteran of the Stratford Festival, winner of the Governor General's Performing Arts Award for his lifetime contribution to theatre as well as a Tony Award, a Dora Award and others, died August 4 in Cranbrook, B.C., which was also his birthplace. He was 68.

Born in 1951, Carver was the third of seven children. He attended the University of British Columbia and almost became a teacher. He began his performing career with a role in Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris at the Vancouver Arts Club in 1972.

His memorable roles included Ariel in The Tempest at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles, Hamlet in a rock musical version of Hamlet at Stratford, Horst in Bent at Toronto's Bathurst Street Theatre, for which he won a Dora Award, and Molina in the Broadway musical The Kiss of the Spider Woman, which won him the 1993 Tony for Best Leading Actor in a Musical.

Carver also appeared in a long list of movies and TV series, including The Beachcombers and The Twilight Zone.
