Colm Feore is one of North America’s top classically trained actors. He’s appeared on stages around the world, on the big screen and television.
In the new Netflix series “Umbrella Academy” Feore plays Sir Reginald Hargreeves who adopts seven babies with miraculous powers and teaches them to be superheroes.
Boasting an all-star cast including fellow Canadian Ellen Page, Mary J Blige, Tom Hopper, Robert Sheehan and Kate Walsh, “Umbrella Academy” is receiving rave reviews.
The Los Angeles Times says: ‘“The Umbrella Academy” stands out among the countless other superhero series splashed across billboards and your viewing queues.’
The Boston Globe review includes this line: “an imaginatively filmed show that follows no formula as it takes on a messed-up family and the roots of trauma.”
In our podcast, we discuss Feore’s stage work on Broadway with Denzel Washington, his work on the film “The Chronicles of Riddick,” with Judi Dench and Vin Diesel and his work at the Stratford Festival.
Colm is married to the very successful director/choreographer Donna Feore, so naturally, I asked him how they manage to have a happy marriage and raise their children while working in locations around the world. Don’t miss my podcast with Donna Feore.
