Bio

Rainbow Sun Francks is a Canadian actor and songwriter (sometimes credited as Rainbow Francks) who is best known for his role as Lt. Aiden Ford in the sci-fi television series Stargate Atlantis, from 2004-2008.

He also starred as Corporal Dev Clark on the supernatural drama series The Listener.

Francks was born into a family of entertainers. He is the son of actor/musician Don Francks and dancer/actor Lili Francks, and brother to Voice Actor Cree Summer.

It was only natural that he would take his first steps into the business at the age of four, counting and dancing on the children's program Sesame Street.

At the age of 13 he worked alongside Christopher Reeve and Tony Todd in the TV western mini-series Black Fox. At around the same time, he was starting to explore his creativity through music.

In collaboration with some friends, they formed the hip-hop group The Oddities. The Oddities began releasing records independently before getting signed to Battle Axe Records/EMI and touring across Canada & the States.

It was at the age of 17 that Francks decided to seriously pursue a career in acting, landing his first leading role in the film The Planet of Junior Brown, directed by Clement Virgo.

The two worked together several more times, including the films Love Come Down and One Heart Broken Into Song, for which Francks received a Gemini Award nomination for Best Male Leading Actor.

Francks showcased yet another skill-set when he became a VJ on Canada's famous MuchMusic television channel, hosting various programs and award shows including the MMVAs and the popular Electric Circus.

In 2004, Francks moved to Vancouver to begin working on the popular sci-fi television series Stargate: Atlantis as LT. Aiden Ford. While in Vancouver, he also played on the short-lived comedy This Space for Rent.

He continues to write and produce music in his spare time under the name "Whippersnapper."
