Bio

Yannick Bisson is a Canadian actor best known for his starring role as Inspector William Murdoch in Murdoch Mysteries in the period drama series Murdoch Mysteries.

Bisson is also well-known to audiences for his long-running roles as FBI Agent Jack Hudson in the crime drama series Sue Thomas: F.B.Eye and as Joey Barrett opposite Rick Springfield in High Tide.

Bisson spent a year in New Zealand with his young family shooting the first season of High Tide and several more years in the U.S. shooting seasons two and three of the series.

While he was in the U.S., Access Hollywood named him "one of the six hottest most up-and-coming actors to look out for," a list that also included Vince Vaughn.

Bisson returned to Canada to perform the lead role of Richmond Hobson in the CBC family series Nothing Too Good for a Cowboy as well as performing as attorney Brian Tedrow in the U.S. hit Showtime drama series Soul Food.

Other credits include guest-starring roles in CBS/CTV's Flashpoint; CTV/Fox International's The Listener; four Roxy Hunter family television movies; the dramatic TV movie The Secrets of Comfort House; the action feature Animal 2 starring Ving Rhames; and the lead role in the indie film Nothing Really Matters.

Additional credits include the romantic TV movies I Do (But I Don't), with Denise Richards and Dean Cain; See Jane Date; The Day Reagan Was Shot, starring Academy Award winner Richard Dreyfuss; The Moving of Sophia Myles, with Della Reese; and Young At Heart, in a supporting role opposite Oscar winner; Olympia Dukakis and featuring the last appearance of the legendary Frank Sinatra, for CBS and Warner Brothers.

Bisson also appeared in the feature film Casino Jack, starring yet another Oscar winner, Kevin Spacey, which premiered at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival and was released worldwide in December 2010, and played opposite Rob Lowe in the TV movie Too Late To Say Goodbye for Lifetime.

A Montreal native who now lives in Toronto, Bisson got his first break in 1984 when he landed a role in CBC's critically acclaimed television movie Hockey Night with Megan Follows and Rick Moranis. This was followed by a lead role in his first feature film, in which he played the title character in Toby McTeague.

Bisson is married to actress, author and producer Chantal Craig.
