When people talk about Canadian celebrities, some of the big names that usually come to the mind are singer Justin Bieber, rapper Drake, actors Ryan Reynolds, and Dwayne Johnson, to mention a few. However, we have seen a lot of other Canadian stars who are doing great in other fields of interest and Lochlyn Munro happens to be one of them. Since 1987 when Munro started his acting career, he has continued to grow his game while flowing along with his co-stars in the industry. Though born in Canada, the actor has had roles in various genres in Hollywood, which of course, has helped him establish his career steadily.
Lochlyn Munro Bio
The Canadian screen actor’s real name is Richard Laughlain Munro. He was born on 12th February 1966, in Lac la Hache, a community in the region of British Columbia, Canada. As you already know, his nationality is Canadian and he is of white ethnicity. Munro was raised up along with his siblings in his native town by his parents, who made a lot of sacrifices to ensure their kids had a great childhood.
Before taking a leap to the film set, Lochlyn was a hockey player who aspired to play in the National Hockey League (NHL). Sadly, his dreams of making it to NHL was sidelined at the age of 18 after he broke his femur as a defenceman. Upon recovery, he decided to relocate to Vancouver to try his hands on something different. He ended up getting involved in music and art in the town, performing as a singer, drummer, and guitarist.
From there, Munro switched to acting after studying drama and improvisational comedy. He grabbed his first role on in the comedy film, 21 Jump Street, where he portrayed a young version of Johnny Depp. Since then, his acting career hasn’t slowed down a bit. Today, the movie star is a reputable force to reckon with in the industry, having grown to become one of the successful full-time Canadian actors in Hollywood and Vancouver.
Some of his professional credits include Riverdale, Wiseguy, Stand Against Fear, CSI, Abduction of Innocence, Charmed, CSI: NY, Without A Trace, and CSI: Miami. Being a phenomenal actor who plies his trade in more than one part of the world, Lochlyn Munro currently splits his time between Los Angles and Vancouver.
Although Lochlyn is a superstar in the movie industry, he is passionate about sports. In one of his interviews, he stated that he would have loved to be a sports anchor on television if he had not been an actor. Right from childhood, the actor has always wanted to be a teacher or a sports coach – be it football, soccer, hockey, or baseball. In 2015, Lochlyn Munro was selected to advice budding actors, makeup artists, and aestheticians at a private academy teaching college based in Vancouver, the New Image College of Fine Arts.

Family: Brother, Wife, and Children
The actor has undoubtedly been vocal about his career but the same cannot be said about his family background. He has never commented about his siblings in front of the camera but he has an on-screen twin brother (Jeff Sheridan) who co-starred in the TV series, Charmed with him.
Lochlyn Munro may have played the role of a husband to many women on the screen but in real life, he is in love with one woman and her name is Sharon Munro. The lovebirds got married in the year 1997 and have been living happily ever since.
