Mini Bio (1)

Born in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

From actor to writer to Dj to filmmaker, Gordon first stepped in front of the camera at age 12 in a movie with James Woods and Allan Arkin (Joshua Then and Now). Ever since he has lived and breathed film.

He trained at Theatre Aquarius and then began a long career of film and television through the 80's and 90's.

In the 2000's He is known mostly from Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda on which he played a starship's irrascible engineer (2000-2005); the same period when he won a Gemini as "Canada's Hottest Star" (2002, 17th Annual). Figuring that was the pinnacle, Gordon moved behind the camera. On that show he began writing for prime time television and turned out 3 episodes of Andromeda. He moved into directing and has since produced/written and directed a number of works. His short Parkman, earned special selection at the BNFF (Buffalo Niagara Film Festival).

Gordon can still be found in front of the camera, most recently on episodes of izombie, but has a number of projects in the works and is focusing on directing. A feature documentary for 2017/2018 is in post production.

He is represented by LLA and KC Talent out of B.C. Canada.

Trivia (10)

In the early 1990s he was a host of YTVs Video & Arcade Top 10 (1991), which was basically a weekly half-hour commercial for Nintendo video game systems. In the summer of 1992 his future Andromeda (2000) co-star, Lexa Doig, was (briefly) also a host for the movie and music segments.
During the early through mid 90s, he was also known to Canadian children (and Sailor Moon watching adult slackers) as "P.J. Gord" on YTV, the Canadian equivalent of Nickelodeon. Canadian broadcasters are only allowed to devote about half as much time per hour to commercials during children's programming as American broadcasters are allowed, so, to fill the gaps between programmes during the daytime, YTV has hosts. Gord most often did the noon to 2:30 pm shift, though he sometimes filled in for other P.J.s.
Nicole de Boer of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993) co-starred with him on Mission Genesis (1997). Laura Bertram also guest-starred as his girlfriend.
His brother, Jaimz Woolvett, did an episode of 'Kung Fu' with him.
Began acting at age 12, attending the Theatre Aquarius.
Was nominated for a Gemini award for his role of a cancer patient in the television movie Princes in Exile (1990).
Was a PJ (Program Jockey) on YTV (Youth Television) in Ontario for a few years in the station's formative years.
After stint on YTV, he lost a bit of weight before moving on to more important roles in movies and TV.
Son Rogan born 31 July 2001. Daughter Veronica Michele Woolvett born on June 24, 2005.
Known for playing one of television's most sarcastic but fast talking characters. King of the techno-babble - Seamus Harper in Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda (2000).
