Bruce Gray (September 7, 1936 - December 13, 2017[1]) was a Puerto Rican-born Canadian actor.

Early Years

Gray was born in Puerto Rico and lived in Toronto after 1949. He graduated from Humberside Collegiate and from the University of Toronto with a Master's in Psychology.[2] While at the University of Toronto, he was an active member of Phi Delta Theta fraternity.

Acting career

He was probably best known to Canadian audiences for his portrayal of investment banker Adam Cunningham on the Global series Traders, the father of the groom in My Big Fat Greek Wedding, the recurring role of Judge J.E. Reilly on the television serial Passions and the ghost of Joe's father on the hit television show Medium.[3]

However, he made appearances in American media; particularly in science fiction.[4] He portrayed Sky Marshall Dienes in the movie version of Starship Troopers, an interrogator of Captain John Sheridan on Babylon 5, legendary Vulcan philosopher Surak on Star Trek: Enterprise and Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy in the 2008 film Recount. He appeared several times on Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine as Admiral Chekote.

He appeared on a number of soap operas and serials. Two important roles were that of Wyatt Coles on All My Children (playing the husband in a child-abusing couple) and on The Edge of Night (on which he played Owen Madison, the husband of Kim Hunter).

He also had a guest-starring role on the popular cable television series Queer as Folk, playing gay millionaire George Schickel.

Gray was the face of the leader of a fictitious anti-Amsterdam organization in a print and internet advertising campaign for Amstel beer.


Gray succumbed to cancer on December 13, 2017 at the age of 81.[5]
