Barry Levy is an award winning filmmaker and actor. A dual US/Canadian citizen, he has garnered numerous festival awards for the movies he's made, and enjoyed a diverse and extensive acting career. Over the years he has portrayed serious roles like the ill-fated pilot of Flight 93 (2006), hammed it up in Scary Movie 4 (2006), gotten scientific on The X-Files (1993), and kicked butt in Scandal (2012) and Spook (2003). His broad range as an actor gives him the ability to play everything from hard nosed killers to warm hearted dads, and everything in between.
His award winning feature length and short films have been shown on screens around the world, and he continues to please audiences with a style that entertains while pushing the boundaries of technology and cinema.
His movie Spook (2003) was the first Canadian feature to ever be accepted into the prestigious Shanghai International Film Festival in 2003, but was prevented from screening. The film was a political hot potato in his home country due to its explosive expose of Canada's covert involvement in the Vietnam War, and the over 40,000 Canadians who secretly served there. Spook went on to win numerous festival and grand jury awards in the US.
His current projects in development are 'Specious', a sic-fi horror feature, and the heist movie, 'Snatched'.
Levy has also worked as a Radio broadcaster, and holds a BFA degree from The Department of Theatre and Film at The University of British Columbia. He makes his home in Los Angeles with his wife, actress Helenna Santos.
