Birthday: Mar 16, Birthplace: London, Ontario, Canada. Having been a leading player on Broadway for most of his career, actor Victor Garber unsurprisingly became a powerful force on screen as well, particularly on television shows like "Alias" ABC, Garber came to prominence on stage in the early s after a short-lived stint in a Canadian pop group with winning performances in "Godspell" and "Ghosts" But it was his Tony Award-nominated performance in "Deathtrap" that earned the young actor considerable attention.

The role earned him three consecutive Emmy nominations and enough clout to star in his own series, "Justice" Fox, , an intriguing, but unfortunately short-lived courtroom drama. But by the time he delivered a solid performance opposite Oscar-winning actor Sean Penn in the moving drama, "Milk" , Garber had earned a reputation as one of Hollywood's most dependable and enduring supporting actors.
