Graham Steeksma - The Doctor

Graham Steeksma was bitten by the live theatre bug when he was in Grade 8, but luckily he did not die from it, and every school year since then he performed in theatre productions, often taking on the star role such as "Basil Fawlty" in two episodes of Fawlty Towers, or supplying a strong supporting character, such as "The Dentist", in Little Shop of Horrors.

After graduation, Graham attended Gastown Actors Studio, just prior to its demise, (perhaps from the theatre bug) learning the basics of theatre and film work.  After the school closed, Graham then formed an improvisational group called "The Idiot Squad" with some like minded  bozos - er - wonderful human beings.  The group performed in local coffee houses, and for small businesses and charity events around the Fraser  Valley. 

Graham then packed up and went off to Toronto to study at The Second City Comedy Training Centre, where he graduated at the conservatory level in 2006.

He is a veteran of the local live theatre, festivals and comedic theatre productions put on by The Fraser Valley Fine Arts Company, and Funny Bones productions  (Disorder in Court, The Foursome, Maggie's Getting Married, Drop Dead) and also went to Ireland with The Fraser Valley Stage Production Society for the annual Gilbert and Sullivan festival, in a supporting role for their production of  The Mikado.

Graham's love and passion is British Comedy, having cut his teeth on British classic comedy greats such as Peter Cook and Dudley Moore, Monty Python and Rowan Atkinson.  Luckily once again, his teeth weren't too badly damaged (often a pre-requisite to being British).   He has reproduced to spot-on accuracy many of their classic skits and bits over the last number of years, culminating in a full 2 hour show of Monty Python sketches called A Knight of Monty Python in which he directed and starred as well as co-produced with Mark Field of Funny Bones productions.

It is no surprise then that his role as "The Doctor" in Doctor Who :: Victimsight was a perfect fit for Graham, even though the clothes were not.

Currently Graham is writing for future projects, and is very interested in continuing to expand his knowledge and experience in Film and Television, as well as continuing to accumulate more beautiful scars that only live productions can provide.
