Duncan Regehr - Actor, Artist, Poet
Duncan Regehr famous for playing ZORRO, the swashbuckling hero of Spanish California, on The Family Channel's New World Zorro TV series from 1990-1993 is very talented actor. He's acted in every facet of the entertainment world: television, movies, theater and radio. You're very likely aware that he is considered one of the greatest Zorro's of all-time. After all when it comes to Zorro he's mentioned in the same breath as Guy Williams, Tyrone Power, Douglas Fairbanks and Antonio Banderas. In fact, in most polls he ranks in the top 2 all-time. He's even considered to be among the best actors to ever play the role of Dracula. His performance as the Transylvanian Count in the 1987 horror/comedy film The Monster Squad is a masterpiece reminiscent of the great Bela Lugosi. But here's something that you may not know, one of histories greatest Zorro's is also an incredibly talented artist as well. He paints, he sculpts, he draws. He even writes poetry. In fact, Mr. Regehr has works of art on exhibit in many of the finest museums in the world.
