C. David Johnson


Born in Montreal, transplanted to the Maritimes, and now based in Toronto, David began his career with Theatre New Brunswick, where he has continued to perform for over twenty years, most recently as Captain Hook in Walter Learning’s production of Peter Pan. Audiences will remember him as the morally dubious Chuck Tchobanian on the long running CBC series "Street Legal".  A graduate of the Playhouse Acting School in Vancouver, he has been a member of the Soulpepper Theatre Company, the Stratford Festival Company, the Vancouver Playhouse and the National Arts Centre Company, as well as performing in regional theatres across the country. Film and television credits include Mysterious Island(Global),Thanks of a Grateful Nation and Aldrich Ames(Showtime), and Hidden Dimensions(IMAX).
