Paul Gross is a Canadian actor, director, and screenwriter.
The term Paul Gross Arms (\o/) refers to a particular stance he took in the music video for his song "Voodoo".
Occasionally Gross takes up political activism, such as speaking to a Canadian Senate committee against Bill C-10, which would alter the tax credit system currently in place for Canadian productions.
He is married to Martha Burns, a fellow Canadian actor who co-starred with Gross in Slings and Arrows and The Trojan Horse and appeared in two episodes of Due South (once as a Russian spy and once as a cameo in Call of the Wild as Fraser's mother, Caroline).
Attitude toward Fanfiction
1997 on the addition of Ray Kowalski:
- I tell you, slash fiction is going to go crazy when they see the new guy. He is really good-looking and sexy, the dangerous side of Fraser. It will be totally homoerotic.
1998, on slash fandom:
I suppose the character is public ground. If you're willing to bring it into people's houses every week, the [fans] are entitled to certain liberties, wherever their imagination is carried by those characters.
Paul Gross occasionally appears as a character in C6D RPF.
