At A Glance

The St. Albert, Canada native left home at the young age of 18 to find fame and fortune in the modeling industry. Soon thereafter, a respectable career in modeling and commercials – including for The Gap – allowed Thompson to pay the bills and afford to travel internationally. He admits that becoming an actor was never far from his thoughts.

Thompson has an impressive resume of theater, film and television roles. His theater credits include lead roles in the plays The Academy, More than You and Jakob. He also starred in the films Wishmaster 4: The Prophecy and Divide.

His television credits include guest-starring roles on Deep, Felicity, Zoe, MTV Undressed and Flipper. In addition, to playing Dr. Patrick Drake and earning five consecutive Emmy nominations, Thompson also played the same role in the highly-successful primetime spinoff, General Hospital: Night Shift, on SOAPnet.

Thompson currently lives in Los Angeles and loves to play hockey and surf. In addition he co-owns two restaurants in Edmonton, Canada.
