Star man from Lexx ...

 

Brian was born and raised in Newfoundland, Canada. Selected theatre credits include the role of Bobby in 'Cheatin Hearts,' Theseus in 'A Midsummer Night's Dream,' and Fleet in the Trinity Festival's 'Black Stick Tales.'

Brian plays Stanley Tweedle, bumbling nebbish and former revolutionary, in the dark science fiction comedy series Lexx. Stanley was an utterly unexceptional low-grade security guard in the Divine Order, the 20,000-planet empire ruled by the malevolent Divine Shadow.

However, he had a history of covert resistance, but his involvement with the rebellion was very counterproductive, eventually putting the greatest weapon ever created, the Lexx, into a galactic tyrant's hands.

Brian has also appeared as the recurring character Mister Dean in Chris Carter's Millennium, as Milo Grunbacher in The Beachcombers, plus CBC Television's long running Revue (1987-93), as well as co-starring in the award-winning Salter Street Production George's Island.

Brian also wrote and starred as Captain Joe, the First Wise Fisherman, Vincent, Good Lifer Number 2, Ron and the Third Logger in the Canadian Movie 'Joey' in 1982. Other films include 'Secret Nation,' 'Norman's Awesome Experience' (aka 'A Switch In Time'), 'John and the Missus,' 'Culture Shock' and 'The Adventures of Faustus Bidgood.'

Downey is also a talented musician, with skills at guitar (acoustic and electric), electric bass and harmonica, in both straight and blues styles.
