Torrance Coombs

Torrance Coombs is a dynamic young actor who has quickly forged a diverse career on screen as well as on stage. He has most recently achieved fame for his sexy turn as the rakish Thomas Culpepper, who was beheaded for his illicit romance with Queen Katherine Howard, in the fourth and final season of Showtime's hit series The Tudors. Coombs has also recently completed the upcoming feature film Killer Mountain.

Coombs' many television credits include a series regular role as John Doe in the cult-hit Douglas Coupland series, jPod, a recurring role as the hotshot horse trainer Chase Powers in CBC's Heartland and guest-starring roles in Supernatural and Battlestar Gallactica.

Born and raised in Vancouver, Canada, Coombs first got into acting when he joined the school choir as a means of breaking out of his shell. His first part was the Rum Rum Tugger in a production of Cats, a role which required him to study footage of Elvis in concert to learn how to shake his hips.

His fears conquered, Coombs' love of acting continued throughout high school, eventually landing him in the acting program at the University of British Columbia. After graduating with his BFA, Coombs jumped into the theatre scene, doing two seasons at Vancouver's prestigious Bard On The Beach Shakespeare Festival and various other shows.

Coombs has also received a LEO nomination for his work in The Familiar, a horror-comedy currently making the rounds of festivals in the United States and abroad. He also appears in the upcoming dark war comedy feature Afghan Luke, directed by Trailer Park Boys creator Mike Clattenburg.
