Happy birthday to Elias Toufexis, an actor whose path I crossed when I worked on his second movie: the sci-fi version of American Pie called Decoys! I only wish that movie had been better. Anyway, Toufexis hails from Montreal, and following Decoys he moved to Vancouver to continue his pursuit of acting. He’s appeared in numerous popular TV series including The Dead Zone, Dead Like Me, Da Vinci’s Inquest, Blade: The Series, Stargate: Atlantis, Painkiller Jane, Smallville, and Alphas, and he’s done a large amount of video game voice work, too, providing voices in Need for Speed: Carbon, Assassin’s Creed, Assassin’s Creed II, Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, Assassin’s Creed Revelations, Splinter Cell: Conviction, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, Shaun White Skateboarding, and the upcoming Splinter Cell: Blacklist. He also provided the voice of the main character – Adam Jensen – in Deus Ex: Human Revolution! So happy birthday to Elias! It’s inspiring to see how far you’ve made it since we met way back in 2004. Elias Toufexis turns 37 today.
