ROBIN WARD: Stars as Garth

With a distinctive display of his various talents as a film and stage actor, singer, musician and television performer, Robin Ward, who also stars in the Glen-Warren &endash; CTV production of "The Starlost", premiering this Fall on CTV, has come to prominent attention in the last few years.

He and his co-star Pat Galloway starred in "Spring Thaw '69" and other leading roles including "Irma La Douce", "Antigone", "What The Butler Saw", "Love and Maple Syrup", "Loot", "Spare Rib" and "Lady Frederick".

Among his feature films are "Flick" and "Explosion!," for which he also recorded and sang the musical theme, "Little Boy." When performing on variety shows he writes and performs much of his own music as he did for "The Wild Goose Trail" and "Life Is Worth The Living" in which he had a leading role. This film won an Etrog Award.

Robin appeared as a principal in the feature film "U-Turn", the official Canadian entry at the Berlin Film Festival in which actress Gay Rowan played the lead.

Multi-talented Robin Ward brings an unusually rich theatrical heritage to the role of Garth; his mother is the well-known Canadian actress, Doree Ward and before his untimely death his father was one of the best actors on the Toronto scene. His sister, Lynn, married to actor Marc Strange, was one third of a popular folk-rock group, The Allen Ward Trio.

Young Robin launched his own career as a member of that trio, appearing with them on television and in concert throughout the United States and Canada.

As a singer, musician and actor, Ward has starred in a variety of stage productions, television specials, radio dramas and feature films.

His stage credits include leads in "Irma La Douce," "Antigone" and "War And Peace."

He has played principal parts in numerous TV specials, including "Simon Locke", "The Paper People" and the title role in the musical version of "Tom Jones."
