Greg Kramer (1961–2013) was a British-born Canadian author, actor, director, and magician.[1] Born and raised in England, he emigrated to Canada in 1981 and spent the remainder of his life living in Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal.

Biography

As an actor he appeared regularly on the television series Forever Knight, John Woo’s Once a Thief and Tales from the Neverending Story, and as a voice actor in Tripping the Rift, George and Martha and Arthur. He also had supporting roles in numerous films, including 300, The Day After Tomorrow, I'm Not There and On the Road. In theatres he worked across Canada, from the Vancouver Playhouse to the National Arts Centre in Ottawa.

A writer of novels and plays, Kramer also had an added and in-demand skill set as a magician. He consulted on the legerdemain in Des McAnuff’s recent production of The Tempest starring Christopher Plummer at the Stratford Festival – and had a skin graft on his forearm from a fire-throwing trick that went awry.[2]
