I know a LOT of people were saddened from the passing of Canadian actor John Dunsworth.
Of course he’s probably best known as the drunken trailer park supervisor Jim Lahey on The Trailer Park Boys, but he’s actually NOTHING like this character at all.
So I present to you… the REAL John Dunsworth.
- He has extensive experience in regional theatre.
- He has 9 brothers & sisters.
- He ran for the NDP in the 1988 Nova Scotia election. He came in last place.
- He studied drama at the University of Guelph, but dropped out in year 4.
- in 1970 he converted an abandoned building in Halifax into a playhouse for theatre.
- His daughter acted with him on the Trailer Park Boys
- Axl Rose is a fan of Mr. Lahey. John appeared on stage at a Guns N Roses concert in Halifax.
- He rarely drank alcohol.
He also had a passion for building sculptures… as you can see in this video.
