Martin Cummins


Martin Cummins' acting experience has been diverse. His credits include four seasons playing Nick, a starring role on "Poltergeist: The Legacy." The actor later went on to direct several episodes of "Poltergeist" and "The Outer Limits."

Cummins won the 2000 Genie Award for best supporting actor for his gritty performance in Clemente Virgo's "Love Come Down." And in 2002 Cummins starred in a new television series pilot, "T.R.A.X.X." produced and directed by Renny Harlin.

Since winning his Genie, Cummins has worked non-stop. He has been seen on the big screen opposite Linda Fiorentino and Wesley Snipes in Kari Scogland's "Liberty Stands Still" and on the small screen in the British/Canadian six part mini-series entitled "Dice" of which his performance was nominated for a "Best Lead Actor" Gemini Award. Cummins was also part of the regular cast of James Cameron's hit show "Dark Angel" for the Fox network. He has had recurring roles on several WB series including "Smallville," "The Mountain" and "Black Sash."

Quadruple threat Cummins directed, executive produced, co-wrote and starred in the award winning "We All Fall Down." Cummins plays the tormented and self-destructive Kris, a character based on a close friend from his past. Kris, who lives with his girlfriend Ryan, is a drug-addicted artist on a steady downward spiral. The semi-autobiographical story of "We All Fall Down" is loosely based on Cummins' experiences in Vancouver's downtown eastside. Darcy Belsher plays a character named Michael modeled on Cummins.

Most recently Cummins had the starring role in "39: A film by Carroll McKane" an American independent feature film shot in Chicago.
