The Mutant X Cast and Crew

Tom McCamus played the head of Genomex, Mason Eckhart. Click here to see what he's been up to since Mutant X.

Bio from Ground Control, the Mutant X official website and interviews: John Thomas McCamus was born July 25th, 1955 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada to accountant John Edward and professor Betty. His parents then moved 10 year old Tom and his younger brother Steve (now of McCamus Racing) from Silver Heights to London, where his father acquired a head office job at John Labatt Ltd. and his mother a professorship at University of Western Ontario. Tom first met Art Fidler upon transferring from Bishop Townshend Public School to Oakridge Secondary School. Young Tom wanted to become a science fiction writer, opting to study acting after performing high school theater and watching Alan Bates perform Richard III while in grade 7 or 8. After high school, Tom worked odd jobs in a bookstore, a post office, and a restaurant as a dishwasher before studying drama for three years at the University of Windsor's School of Dramatic Art. He left in 1978 before completing his degree, having been hired by William Hutt's Theatre London Young Company (later Grand Theatre), leading to a long-standing career at the annual Shaw and Stratford Festivals. Tom met his future wife, fellow thespian Chick (Carol Ann) Reid, when both were cast in the 1980 play From Saigon to Sudbury. He wrote several plays, including Behind the Pole for The Factory Theatre's 1986 Brave New Works series, and The Death of Eddie Einstein and Apoplexy for Tarragon Theatre. In 1993, Tom was awarded the Best Performance in a Leading Role Genie Award for his portrayal of a disturbed actor in I Love A Man In Uniform, the film Tom credits with establishing his love for making movies. He then won the 1994 Dora Award for his Stratford debut season role of Abundance's Jack Flan, followed by a 1996 Stage Door nomination for Waiting for Godot's Vladimir and Genie nominations for the lead of Edmund in 1996 Long Day's Journey Into Night, and supporting role in 1997 The Sweet Hereafter. He also shared the National Board review's 1997 Best Ensemble Award for The Sweet Hereafter. Tom's first musical role was as King Arthur in Camelot in 1997, for which he received another Stage Door nomination. In 2006, Tom won both a Gemini Award and an ACTRA Award for playing Wayne Gretzky's father in Waking Up Wally, then was nominated for 2006 and 2007 Dora Awards for Mathilde and Thom Pain respectively. Tom and his wife Chick have lived on a 54 acre farm near Warkworth since they left Toronto in 2000. Both are members of the Warkworth Community Service Club. Though Tom enjoys farmwork, the majority of the land is tended by their dairy farmer neighbor, Robert Glover. They have three duck tolling retrievers named Joey, Gracie, and Maggie. Tom credits actor William Hutt with helping to inspire and shape his career; he also admires Martha Henry, Stephen Ouimette, Brent Carver, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, John Hurt, and Helen Mirren. Tom is a science-fiction fan of the author Isaac Asimov, the television series Star Trek and Quantum Leap, and the movies Blade Runner, Star Wars, Outland, The Abyss, and ALIEN.
