Rémy Girard launched his career in theater, but it was his scene-stealing performance in "The Decline of the American Empire" (1986) that turned him into one of Canada's most celebrated actors. Girard was born on Aug. 10, 1950 in Jonquière, Québec, Canada. Encouraged by his politician father to study law, he attended Laval University, where Girard joined the Troupe des Treize theatre group. He dropped out six months before graduating and immersed himself in acting. While living in Québec City, Girard co-founded Le Theatre du Québec, a cabaret and guerilla-style troupe. He had minor roles on many television serials and in films before landing his breakthrough role in Denys Arcand's critically acclaimed drama "The Decline of the American Empire." The Genie Awards consistently recognized his performances, where he once held the record for the most honored performer regarding leading actor wins and nominations. Girard impressed critics and audiences with his range, whether playing a clumsy hockey coach on "Les Boys" (Société Radio-Canada, 2007- ) or when he delivered a heartfelt performance in "The Barbarian Invasions" (2003). Girard was reportedly in talks with Steven Spielberg for a role in "Munich" (2005), but was ultimately replaced by a French actor. He appeared in Hollywood productions in the mid-2000s with minor roles in the TV movie "Human Trafficking" (2005) and in the comedy "Blades of Glory" (2007). In 2011, Girard starred on the CBS action-comedy series "InSecurity" as a veteran national security and intelligence agent.
