About Jean-François

I'm described as an actor with an imposing presence and distinctive voice. Over the past 25 years, I've worked my way across Canada from Quebec's North Shore to Alberta, via Tunisia, England and James Bay, taking turns as a theater and television actor and director or as a radio host and producer.
Since 2008, my appearances have increased on both the big and small screen. I recently won the coveted role of radio host André Arthur in the series ¨Malenfant ¨. I also played Jeff Syslot in the docu-drama "Destination Cauchemar: Bali" and the role of Mr. Jean in "Mirador 2". I was also seen as a lead investigator in "Forensics", aired in 2012.

Unique traits: Black hair and...a red beard!
