He’s probably best known for his recurring role as Cade Foster on SyFy TV series First Wave. But really, he’s been on so many shows that I’m pretty sure you would have seen him.
His father, Michael Cook, was a playwright best known for Jacob’s Wake, 1974; The Head, Guts and Sound Bone Dance, 1973; and the children’s play The Fisherman’s Revenge, 1976. He passed away on July 1, 1994 at 69 years old.
His mother, Janis Spence, was a playwriter, director and actress. She wrote plays like Makin’ Time with the Yanks (a story about the U.S. presence in St. John’s during the Second World War) and Terras de Baccalhau (about women who became romantically involved with Portuguese fishermen). She suffered a stroke in the fall, then in a coma and died on February 7, 2008, at the age of 61. More on Janice Spence on CBC’s Website.
Sebastian Spence began his career in The Boys of St. Vincent: 15 Years Later in 1993. Played in tv series such as Madison, The Outer Limits, The X-Files, Dawson’s Creek, Stargate SG-1 (one of my favourite shows!), Supernatural, and Battlestar Galactica.
He is currently filming Four Saints, a 2013 film about, as far as I can make out, the the Royal Army Medical Corps, according to IMDB.
He was nominated twice: one in 2008 for Best Supporting Performance by a Male in a Feature Length Drama in Ice Blues, and the other in 2007 for Best Lead Performance by a Male in a Feature Length Drama in Crossing.
