Character actor Garwin Sanford appeared in numerous Canadian television series during the late '80s and '90s, and is highly recognizable for science fiction shows. His early work included guest-starring in multiple episodes of "Airwolf" when production on the helicopter-themed series moved to Canada. This was followed by minor parts in films and more television appearances, most notably as the character Andrew MacDonald in "Street Legal," a drama about lawyers set in Toronto, as well as different roles in the fantasy series "The Odyssey." Both aired during the '90s, as did the Canadian adventure serial "Hawkeye," in which he played Captain Taylor Shields. During this time, his credits in science fiction-themed shows began accumulating: along with guest-starring on the inter-dimensional travel series "Sliders" and the anthology "The Outer Limits," starting in 2000 he appeared as the recurring alien politician Federov in "Earth: Final Conflict" and as Narim, an official from an alien race that does not share technology with more primitive life forms, in "Stargate SG-1." From '04 to '05, he appeared in several episodes of another "Stargate" show, "Stargate: Atlantis," as Dr. Simon Wallis, fiancé of diplomat Elizabeth Weir. In films, he has appeared with the likes of David Bowie and Sylvester Stallone in the 2000 family fantasy "Exhuming Mr. Rice" and the remake of "Get Carter," respectively.
