Roy Dupuis (French pronunciation: [ʁwa dypɥi]) is a anadian actor most well known, as Mooter says, for his role as counterterrorism operative Michael Samuelle in the television series La Femme Nikita. He portrayed Maurice Richard on television and in film and Roméo Dallaire in the 2007 film Shake Hands with the Devil.
Born to French-Canadian parents he spent his formative years living in Amos, Abitibi, Quebec before moving onto Kapuskasing, Ontario – where he learned to speak English (with that glorious voice of his…)
Other than his rugged good looks he is most known to me for his participation in the Rivers Foundation (Fondation Rivières), an ecological organisation that protects the rivers of Quebec and their natural and cultural habitats from small hydroelectric dam projects and other environmental and economic threats.
Good looks and a passionate protector of this environment…Quite the package.
