Early life and education
Munro’s dream was not to become a famous actor, but a successful ice hockey player, however, a serious injury destroyed that dream – his hockey season lasted for 26 seconds before he broke his femur as a defenceman, and due to the fact that he couldn’t do much physically, he bought a guitar and started playing it. He also decided to study drama and improvisational comedy (he was studying together with Susan Strasberg) while playing music in clubs around Vancouver in order to earn a living. His first thought about becoming an actor came after he saw the “Midnight Express” movie, which he loved and couldn’t stop talking about it, so he figured that maybe he could be the one who gets to tell all those amazing stories.
Munro’s first TV series roles include in “21 Jump Street” shot in 1987, and “Wiseguy” in 1990, and his first movie appearance was in “Cadence” in the same year, in which he played a support role of a bartender. Munro appeared in so many movies and series that it is even hard for us to count all of them, but his most noticeable appearances include in two of “Moment of Truth” movies – “Stand Against Fear” and “Abduction of Innocence”.
His role of Jack Sheridan in the TV fantasy drama series “Charmed” in 1999 was the one which made him somewhat famous, popular throughout US as well as in Europe, which gained recognition on both continents. The series counts 179 episodes, and is about three sisters who are sort of witches who call themselves “charmed ones”, and use their powers to fight demons and ghosts – lead roles belong to Holly Marie Combs, Alyssa Milano and Brian Krause. Some of Munro’s other important roles have been in “Without a Trace”, “CSI”, “CSI: Miami” and “CSI: NY”.
Munro never seems to have any free time as he is always filming. He’s acted alongside some of the world’s most famous actors, including Morgan Freeman, Gene Hackman, Clint Eastwood and Richard Harris – he loved just absorbing everything he could from them in order to improve his skills. He even got a chance to work with Leslie Nielsen who taught him a lot about comedy and comedy timing.
As of early 2019, Munro is shooting for “The Murders” and “Riverdale” TV series’.
Munro got his nickname “Black Hood” from the “Riverdale” TV series – he was a masked guy who was going around the city of Riverdale killing sinners but his terror ended in Season two’s penultimate episode. The fun part about all of this is that nobody really knew who “Black Hood” was going to be during the filming of the show, because they used a stuntman for his role. Only after Munro started shooting the part in which they took him out of his house with handcuffs on and put him in jail, did he realize that he was, in fact, “Black Hood”.
Munro’s passion towards sports never really died, and during one of his interviews, he said that he would love to work as a sports anchor on television if he would only get a chance. Since he was a kid, he had that dream of being a sports coach, whether it’s football, soccer, hockey or baseball. His dream partially came true in 2015, when he was invited to advise budding actors, makeup artists, and aestheticians at the New Image College of Fine Arts private academy in Vancouver, and he has been holding classes there ever since.
This actor has been married to the love of his life, Sharon Munro, since 14 June 1997 – the couple has two kids together, Magdalen and Hudson. Munro spends half of his time in Vancouver and half in Los Angeles, meaning half at home and half at work.
Other than this, there is nothing else known about Munro’s personal life – he doesn’t talk about his parents or his siblings, and he never mentions his ex-girlfriends.
