Aaron Poole

A graduate of George Brown Theatre School, with training in the Strasberg and Meisner techniques, Aaron broke out in his defining performance in Ed Gass-Donnelly’s This Beautiful City, a film for which he was also a producer. Following its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, Aaron’s performance garnered him a Canadian film academy award, a Genie nomination for Best Actor and a Best Actor ACTRA Award.

Since This Beautiful City, Aaron has played a recurring role on TMN’s Z.O.S: Zone of Separation and was featured in Atom Egoyan’s Adoration.  He then traveled with Egoyan to Armenia to begin shooting an experimental collaboration with the filmmaker. After coming home from another exotic location, Lebanon, where he filmed the missing third act to American indie hit, Circumstance, Aaron teamed up with Ed Gass- Donnelly and producer Lee Kim once again for the feature Small Town Murder Songs.

Additional credits include Showcase’s Crash and Burn, HBO Canada’s Living in your Car, Global series King as well as a heavily recurring role on BBC America’s series Copper. He was also featured in Samuel L. Jackson’s self-produced and self-starring feature, The Samaritan, along with Jason Priestley’s Cas & Dylan, appearing alongside Richard Dreyfuss, and was more recently featured in Jon Cassar’s film Forsaken, starring opposite Kiefer and Donald Sutherland.
