Lorne Cardinal, BFA

Lorne CardinalBringing laughter to people across Canada and around the world, Lorne is an Actor + Director well known for his role as “Sgt. Davis Quinton” on 6 seasons of the hit, Gemini award-winning comedy series Corner Gas.

Lorne was on the road to becoming a teacher before changing his path. Even though he made the switch, numerous years directing both tv and theatre means Lorne is no stranger to teaching and facilitation. As the first UBC “Phil Lind Multicultural Artist in Residence” Lorne spent several weeks speaking and mentoring in the theatre arts and film programs working with a range of 1st year students to Masters’ level learners.

In addition to schools, Lorne speaks and works with youth, young offenders & youth at risk, community & charitable organizations and fundraising events. He has guest facilitated audition workshops as well as joining in on Humour For Health workshops with Monique for team-building, staff retreats and health & wellness conferences.

Humour For Health offers up some of the most important things Lorne loves about Directing – helping others learn new skills and build confidence – with the added bonus of having a focus on the spirit of play and fun.
