John Dunsworth

Unless you're familiar with the Canadian television show The Trailer Park Boys, you've probably never heard of the talented actor, John Dunsworth.

Based on the character, Mr Lahey, that Dunsworth plays on that show is enough to throw this actor in among the best. There have been actors that have portrayed convincing drunks before, but never to the level of comedy that John Dunsworth brings to the character.

He's not just a one note actor, either. Whether it be a comedy or drama and no matter how large or small the part is, John Dunsworth delivers a three dimensional character full of creative detail every time, all the time.

Unlike many actors, John Dunsworth is also very approachable. Whether you find him on Facebook or happen to run into him on the street, he's usually more than happy to talk with a fan or two about his craft or his characters. In fact, his stories of the past and his views on his profession give one an insight into his passion and love of the work he does.

On October 16, 2017, John Dunsworth passed away after a brief unexpected illness. He was a very talented actor who had fans all over Canada and the United States. He will be missed, but his work will carry on.
