Bio

Jeff Seymour is a Canadian actor best known for his television roles as Kamal Azizi in The Eleventh Hour (2004-2005) and as Jeff Stevens in Jeff Ltd. (2006-2007), which he also co-wrote and produced.

The Eleventh Hour received 15 Gemini nominations in its third and final season. Seymour was nominated the award all three seasons and won the Gemini Award for Best Actor in a Dramatic Series in 2003, during the program's first season.

Born in Washington, D.C., and raised in Virginia, Jeff Seymour moved to Los Angeles at age 19 to study at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. It was in L.A. that he spearheaded the design and building of the city's prestigious Gnu Theatre.

In the theatre's 10-year history Seymour produced, directed and performed in 30 multi- award-winning shows at that venue, including American Buffalo, A View From The Bridge, Brothers and El Salvador.

Seymour broke into television with appearances on the hit series Knot's Landing and Bosom Buddies. He quickly landed the recurring role of Lou Santini in season one of the long-running hit series Hill Street Blues; followed by numerous roles on television throughout his 25-year career.

For the big screen, Seymour wrote, directed, and starred in Rave Review, which garnered a Gold Award for Best Comedy Feature when it premiered at the 1994 Houston International Film Festival. The film went on to earn Gold Awards in its category at the Spain and Portugal International Film Festivals.

Seymour's film credits also include performances in the thrillers The Burial Society, Kari Skogland's Liberty Stands Still, Kill Me Later; and the comedy Wedding Bell Blues in which he co-starred with Illeana Douglas.

He also starred as Majid in Ruba Nadda's critically acclaimed Sabah.

After winning the Gemini for Best Actor, Seymour was immediately cast as one of the regulars on Barna-Alpers' critical darling, Show Me Yours, a half-hour comedy playing on Showcase and Oxygen.

Seymour played a wealthy German-Arab banker on TNT's The Grid, and Paul Gross' chief advisor in the political thriller H2O.
