Victor Joseph Garber (born March 16, 1949) is a six-time Emmy Award-nominated Canadian film, stage and television actor and singer. Garber is perhaps best known for playing Jack Bristow in the television series "Alias" and Thomas Andrews in James Cameron's "Titanic."


Personal life

Garber was born in London, Ontario, Canada. His mother, Hope Garber (née Wolf), was an actress and singer. Victor was also her caregiver until her death from Alzheimer's disease.


Garber began acting at the age of nine, joining the University of Toronto's Hart House at age 15. In 1967 he formed a folk band called The Sugar Shoppe with Peter Mann, Laurie Hood and Lee Harris. The group enjoyed moderate success, even performing on "The Ed Sullivan Show" and "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" before breaking up. [ [ CANOE - JAM! Music - Pop Encyclopedia - Sugar Shoppe ] ] He has worked in various American and Canadian movies and television, including James Cameron's "Titanic" (1997), in which he perfected a Northern Irish accent to play the shipbuilder Thomas Andrews, and CTV's "E.N.G." (1991–1993), on which he had a recurring guest role.

Other well-known appearances include "Godspell" (1973) as Jesus, "Sleepless in Seattle" (1993), "Legally Blonde" (2001), "Annie" (1999), and "Tuck Everlasting" (2002). In the late 1980s, he received an Emmy nomination for his portrayal of Liberace in the made-for-TV movie, "Liberace: Behind the Music".

He is most well known for his portrayal of Jack Bristow on ABC's show, "Alias", for which he earned three Emmy nominations. He very recently appeared on the now-cancelled television series "Justice" on Fox. Garber has been cast in a new show for ABC called "Eli Stone", which is a mid-season replacement for the 2007-2008 season. His most recent TV appearance is as a mysterious character named "Oliver Roth" in the final 3rd season episode of the Canadian science drama "ReGenesis".

He appeared on Broadway in the original productions of "Deathtrap", "Sweeney Todd", and "Noises Off" and in the original off-Broadway cast of "Assassins", as well as in the 1990s revival of "Damn Yankees." He continues to be a sought-after theatrical performer in musicals, comedies and dramatic productions. In 2005 he played the role of Frederic in the LA Opera's production of Sondheim's "A Little Night Music". Most recently, he played the male lead in a critically hailed Encores presentation of "Follies", with Donna Murphy. He has been nominated for four Tony awards. In mid-2007, he played the role of Garry Essendine in a production of Noel Coward's "Present Laughter" at Boston's Huntington Theatre. [ [ Present Laughter] May 18, 2007]
