Geraint Wyn Davies was born in Swansea, Wales, on April 20, 1957, to a Welsh congregational preacher and a schoolteacher. When he was seven he and his family moved to Canada. He graduated from Upper Canada College, after which he entered the University of Western Ontario where for three months he studied business and economics before pursuing an acting career that has now continued, uninterrupted, for more than 25 years. The acting career has since branched out into directing, writing and producing, with Ger forming his own production company, Roundtable Films. His professional stage debut was made in 1976 in Quebec City when he was 19 when he appeared in "The Fantasticks", "Red Emma" and "A Midsummer's Night Dream", but he was actually 12 when he was first bitten by the acting bug, appearing in a performance of "Lord of the Flies". After Quebec, Geraint moved on to London's Centre Stage Theatre Company. His impressive stage career includes performing for eight seasons in both the Shaw Festival and the Stratford Festival in Canada. Geraint gained a reputation as a gifted stage performer for his performances in such plays as "The Music Cure", "Candida", "Cyrano de Bergerac", "The Vortex", "Goodnight Disgrace", "Henry V", "The Three Musketeers" and even sang and danced in the Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart musical "The Boys from Syracuse". Other stage performances include "My Fat Friend" in Los Angeles and "Sleuth" with Patrick Macnee in Toronto. His stage career has spanned years and continents. In England he continued his stage work with the British Actors Theatre Company, where he played the lead in "The Last Englishman". He then spent two seasons with Wales' leading theatre company, Theatre Clwyd, touring the United Kingdom in "Enemy of the People" and "Hamlet". It was his performance in "Hamlet" that led to the Regional Theatre Best Actor Award. He then spent a season with the Chichester Festival doing "Henry VIII". In April of '96 Geraint appeared as Petruchio in a riotous version of William Shakespeare's "The Taming of The Shrew" directed by Patrick Tucker of the Original Shakespeare Company. This three-performance run was presented as Will's own players may have done - with sparse rehearsal, eclectic costuming, rotating roles and plenty of laughs. In the spring of 1998 he appeared in the Mois├ęs Kaufman production "Gross Indecency: The Three Trials of Oscar Wilde", at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles. "Gross Indecency" earned the Garland Award for "Best Ensemble Cast" from Backstage West that year. In August of 1999 Geraint starred in a one-man show written by Leon Pownall called "An Evening with Dylan Thomas" at the Atlantic Theatre Festival in Nova Scotia, Canada. The following summer he returned to the Atlantic Theatre Festival in the second of what would become Pownall's Dylan Thomas trilogy, "Dylan Thomas and Shakespeare: In the Envy Of Some Greatness". In June 2000 Ger had the privilege of directing Oliver Mayr's "Joy of the Desolate" in Highland Park, IL. An ongoing project for Geraint the director is "Horatio Salt", a collection of four short films that he is producing and directing. His musical talent was first brought to prominence on _"Forever Knight" (1992)_ , where he actually played the piano in the loft and co-wrote a song for the "Baby Baby" episode. As a result he was featured in one of the selections on the first Forever Knight CD. Geraint, who is married with two children, is always ready to work for a children's charity or to help a struggling theatre. In 2000 he composed, arranged, performed and produced a CD of his own music, the proceeds to benefit charity specifically Children's Hospital Foundation in Washington, DC and the Atlantic Theatre Festival in Nova Scotia.
