Aaron Poole is a Canadian actor best known for his television roles as Toby in Living in Your Car (2010-2011), as Jason Collier in King (2011) and as Robert Cobb Kennedy in Copper, from 2012-2013.
A graduate of George Brown Theatre School, with training in the Strasberg and Meisner techniques, Aaron sizzled in his defining performance as Johnny, a cracked-out street hustler, in Ed Gass-Donnelly's This Beautiful City.
Following its premiere at the 2008 Toronto International Film Festival, Aaron's performance met rave reviews. His portrayal of the recovering addict garnered him a Canadian Academy Award (Genie) nomination for Best Actor, a category he shared with Canadian icon Paul Gross and the legendary Christopher Plummer.
Poole won the Best Actor ACTRA Award that same year for the role.
Since This Beautiful City, Aaron has played a recurring role on TMN's Z.O.S.: Zone of Separation and was featured in Atom Egoyan's Adoration. The next year he again worked with Egoyan when they traveled to Armenia and began an ongoing film collaboration.
After coming home from another exotic location in Lebanon where he was filming the missing third act of 2011 Sundance Audience Choice award-winning feature, Circumstance, Poole teamed up with Ed Gass-Donnelly and producer Lee Kim once again for their indie hit, Small Town Murder Songs, also starring Peter Stormare, Martha Plimpton, and Jill Hennessy.
He played the supporting lead in the Samuel L. Jackson film, The Samaritan; had a star-turn in Rue Morgue Cinema's first feature The Last Will and Testament of Rosalind Leigh; and played Robert Cobb Kennedy in the BBC America series Copper.
