Moving seamlessly from one distinct role to the next and portraying each one with conviction was Roy Dupuis' key to success. Roy Michael Joseph Dupuis was born on April 21, 1963 in Ontario, Canada, and spent his childhood in Amos, Québec and Kapuskasing, Ontario. A graduate of the National Theatre School of Canada in Montréal, he launched his career with appearances in miniseries like "Le monde selon Croc" (Télé-Métropole, 1988), and in films like "Dans le ventre du dragon" (1989) and "Jesus of Montreal" (1989). Dupuis became an overnight celebrity when he co-starred in the miniseries "Les filles de Caleb" (Radio-Canada, 1990) as the adventure-seeking husband of a faithful wife. He received critical acclaim in Jean Beaudin's crime drama "Being at Home with Claude" (1992) as a gay hustler who must explain his unusual motives for murdering his lover. Dupuis kept up guest appearances in his native country until he landed a career-making role in the thriller "La Femme Nikita" (USA Network, 1997-2001), as Michael Samuelle, the emotionless team leader of a covert operation. After the series wrapped, Dupuis starred in a number of French-Canadian films, including "Séraphin: un homme et son péché" (2002), "Mémoires affectives" (2004) and "The Rocket: The Legend of Rocket Richard" (2005), about Québec's most famous hockey player. The prolific actor stayed in the limelight with roles in films like "Shake Hands with the Devil" (2007), as Roméo Dallaire, head of the United Nations' Assistance Mission for Rwanda who tries to stop that nation's genocide, and the baseball feature film "A No-Hit No-Run Summer" (2008), as a coach who refuses to include new players in his team.
