Late post: John Dunsworth passed away

John Dunsworth, the actor best known for his portrayal of Jim Lahey on the cult hit series “Trailer Park Boys,” has died at the age of 71.

Dunsworth’s daughter Sarah, who is also a star of “Trailer Park Boys,” shared the news on Twitter. She wrote, “With heavy and broken hearts the family of John F. Dunsworth would like to let people know that our amazing husband, father, and grandfather John Dunsworth has passed away. John left this world peacefully after a short and unexpected illness.”

The “Trailer Park Boys” team paid tribute to Dunsworth as well, posting on their social media channels: “We’re in shock and heartbroken by the sudden loss of our dear friend John Dunsworth. We respect the family’s wishes for privacy at this time.”

Dunsworth was a Nova Scotia, Canada, native who was active in his local theater and acting community for decades. He first became part of what would become “Trailer Park Boys” when he played a version of the Jim Lahey character for the first time in the short film “One Last Shot.” He would go on to play the character–infamous for his drunken, bisexual escapades as a trailer park supervisor and police officer at different times in the series–throughout its initial seven-season run in Canada and again when the show was revived by Netflix. The series is set to debut its twelfth season on Netflix in the coming year. He would also play the character in all of the “Trailer Park Boys” films and one-off specials.

Beyond his role as Lahey, Dunsworth was also known for playing Dave Teagues in the Syfy series “Haven,” which also filmed in Nova Scotia. The series, based on the Stephen King novel “The Colorado Kid,” aired on the network for five seasons. Dunsworth’s first credited role was in the 1978 short “So Long to Run,” per his IMDB page. His next onscreen role was in the 1987 film “Deep Sea Conspiracy.” He would go on to appear in “Lexx: The Dark Zone Stories” and the Canadian historical drama series “Pit Pony” among many other film and TV projects over his long career.

Lucas Bryant Talks Tulips in Spring, Haven, and More

Here at TV Goodness, we claim our favorites, and if you’ve read me a while, you know how I feel about Lucas Bryant. Color me stoked when the Haven alum popped up in the cast list for a new Hallmark Channel movie, Tulips in Spring. which premieres this Saturday at 9/8c. I recently chatted with Bryant one-on-one about the film, Haven‘s conclusion, his recent film release, The Girl King, and his upcoming Canadian series, Shoot the Messenger.

Tulips in Spring marked a return to work for Bryant after a nice break. Shoot the Messenger wrapped in Toronto late last year and then, after an annual trip to Australia for the holidays, he took some time to hang out with his family. When Hallmark came calling, he was happy to go back to work, and even happier to switch gears to a romantic comedy.

“I got sent the script and I read it and thought it was lovely and that was that. It was a 14-day shoot in and around Vancouver, where I hadn’t been in a while, so that was nice,” he says. “We were in beautiful locations so that was gorgeous. I play Tom, who is working at the family farm of Rose, who’s gone back to help her parents. He re-introduces and re-inspires her to get in touch with her true self. He helps her see that she could be part of her family life again.”

The film was a nice change of pace after five seasons of Haven, followed by another drama in Shoot the Messenger. “It was cool to be able to smile and have a good time, not that my previous characters don’t have a good time, but this guys is much more relaxed and easy and comfortable,” he explains. “There’s definitely a genre thing that Hallmark has expertly developed over the years, but I think the thing to hold onto as an actor is just that there’s a lot of heart, and if you can get to the heart of things, you’ll be right where they need you to be.”
