Paul Essiembre


Nevin Page in “Burden of Truth”

With Acadian roots stretching deep into the Atlantic, Essiembre was born and raised speaking both official languages in Canada’s east coast province of New Brunswick.

Classically trained in theatre, and with a body of work spanning thirty years, Essiembre has played villains and heroes in more than 60 plays at most major theatres across Canada, including four seasons at the Stratford Festival and several productions with Mirvish in Toronto. 

He has been equally prolific in film and television, playing leading and supporting roles in several TV movies such as Hallmark favorites “The Christmas Heart,” “Under the Autumn Moon,” “Love in Design,” and “Sweet Autumn.” He has also appeared on the television shows “Less Than Kind,” “Suits,” and three seasons of “Burden of Truth.” 

In addition, Essiembre has appeared in the films “Stand! The Musical” and “The Ice Road.”

Essiembre is also an impressive voice artist, having performed dozens of cartoon voices, perhaps most recognizably in the title role of the animated series “Silver Surfer,” and as Gil Gripper in the hugely popular children’s series “Rescue Heroes.” He has voiced over 230 television and radio commercials in Canada and has narrated several documentaries for the likes of National Geographic and Discovery Canada (“Journey To The Edge Of The Universe” and “Earth: The Making Of A Planet”). 

Essiembre and his family currently live in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
