Mini Bio (1)
Simon Sinn was born in Hong Kong and moved to Canada in the early 1970s. Simon is a late bloomer when it comes to acting, as he did not get his feet wet until he turned 30. He was a stock & commodity futures broker in Calgary at that time, to gain exposure and expand clientele, he approached a community cable TV station (Chinese) and convinced them to add a financial segment in their news program, and Simon would write and read it. After the screen test, the channel liked him so much they convinced him to also get involved in their weekly live shows, including hosting the show, news reading, interviewing, training and acting in drama, producing documentaries, etc.
Simon realized the potential of "Hollywood North" when he moved to Toronto in late 1980's. He quickly hooked up with Lorraine Wells, a talent agent whom Simon is still working with after 30 years, and continued the adventure. Simon's very first feature film, a principal role in Guilty As Sin, was directed by (deceased) legendary director Sidney Lumet. Two other projects, Where The Truth Lies (feature) and Virtual Hitman (short), made their debuts at various film festivals including Cannes. Because of his passion in financial trading, Simon never quit trading and treated acting as a valuable hobby, something to take his mind off the occasional strain and pressure from trading.
Simon quit trading in 2017 in order to spend more time in acting. As if on cue to say "welcome back", he landed a role shortly after in the Netflix movie Murder Mystery, which took him to lovely Montreal and Santa Margherita, Italy.
