Blessed with a memorable screen presence, Jean-Nicolas Verreault made his mark on the Québec film and television industry. Born in Québec City, Québec, Canada, Jean-Nicolas Verreault earned valuable dramatic training at l'École nationale de théâtre before making his screen debut on the high school sitcom "Radio Enfer" (VRAK.TV, 1995-2001). His professional momentum increased with a role in the mystical, lyrical "Maelström" (2000), for which he earned a Best Supporting Actor Genie Award for his performance as a man who falls in love with the accidental murderer of his father. Although he maintained a presence in movies, including a role as a pilot in the mystery "La turbulence des fluids" ("Chaos and Desire") (2002), TV offered Verreault the choicest parts, including a role on the soap opera "Tabou" (TVA, 2002-03) and the titular detective role on "Les aventures tumultueuses de Jack Carter" (Radio-Canada, 2003). He essayed the famous Québec hero "Le survenant" ("The Outlander") (2005) and landed high-profile roles on the taut drama "Durham County" (The Movie Network, 2007-2012), the murder mystery "Musée Éden" (Radio-Canada, 2010) and, most notably, the dramedy "Les hauts et les bas de Sophie Paquin" (Radio-Canada, 2006-09), where he earned two Best Supporting Actor Gémeaux Award nominations as the unlucky-in-love agent Roch. Continuing to work steadily, Verreault recurred on the soap opera "30 Vies" (Radio-Canada, 2011- ) and took a supporting role in the dramedy "Frisson des collines" (2011), the tale of a young boy desperate to see Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock.
