Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Born in Brampton, Ontario, Canada in 1978, Tyler Labine and his brothers Cameron and Kyle hijacked the family video camera and began making movies before they reached double digits. They soon sought professional representation, and quickly turned their hobby into a profession. The family moved to Vancouver in 1991 and Labine began to find himself in high demand. His first onscreen credit came in 1991, with a guest role on the Canadian legal drama "Street Legal" (CBC, 1987-1994). Once started, Labine didn't rest. Ever. He appeared in guest spots on Canadian staples "Road to Avonlea" (CBC, 1990-96), and "Are You Afraid of the Dark" (YTV, Nickelodeon 1992-96, 1999-2000), as well as shows like "The Commish" (ABC, 1991-96) and "Sabrina the Teenage Witch" (ABC, 1996-2000; The WB, 2000-03), which were made for American audiences. In 1997, Labine appeared in his first series regular role, on the show "Breaker High" (YTV, 1997-98) about students attending high school on a cruise ship. The show was also the series regular debut for a young Ryan Gosling. Labine's first stateside series regular role came in 2001, when he starred in the short-lived "Dead Last" (The WB, 2001), about a band that finds an amulet,...

In 1997, Labine appeared in his first series regular role, on the show "Breaker High" (YTV, 1997-98) about students attending high school on a cruise ship. The show was also the series regular debut for a young Ryan Gosling. Labine's first stateside series regular role came in 2001, when he starred in the short-lived "Dead Last" (The WB, 2001), about a band that finds an amulet, which allows them to communicate with ghosts. Another series regular opportunity presented itself when Labine appeared on "Invasion" (ABC, 2005-06), but the premise of creatures taking over human bodies after a hurricane was undercut shortly before the premiere, when Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans. In 2007, Labine landed yet another series regular job, this time on the supernatural comedy "Reaper" (The CW, 2007-09) where he played the sidekick to a young man who finds out that his parents sold his soul to the Devil, meaning he will be a reaper, bearing souls to the underworld. Labine had his first starring role in a major domestic release, when he played Dale in "Tucker and Dale vs. Evil" (2010). He continued to ply his trade in supporting roles and still more series regular parts on shows like "Mad Love" (CBS, 2011), "Deadbeat" (Hulu, 2014-16), and a recurring role on "Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency" (BBC America, 2016-17) among others. In 2018, he appeared as a series regular on the medical drama "New Amsterdam" (NBC, 2018-).
