Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Although a native of Virginia, character actor Gary Hudson has spent most of his career in Canada, working in the thriving syndicated television and low-budget film industry north of the border. After making his film debut in the 1979 drive-in quickie "Skatetown U.S.A." behind TV stars Scott Baio, Flip Wilson, and "The Brady Bunch"'s Maureen McCormick (not to mention a very young Patrick Swayze) , Hudson spent the better part of the next decade and a half in walk-on and small guest roles on various television series and a small handful of films. Relocating to Canada in the mid-'90s, Hudson found jobs easier to come by, including recurring roles in syndicated action series such as "Air America" and "L.A. Heat." His highest-profile role for American viewers came in 2004, when he began a multi-episode arc as a suspicious FBI agent on the proto-Superman drama "Smallville," but, to Canadian viewers, Hudson became a familiar presence through the popular nighttime soap "Paradise Falls," a steamy drama set in central Ontario's "cottage country," where city folk have small summer homes. In 2009, Hudson returned to series television in his first leading role, as the scheming patriarch of an Alberta oil family...
