Actor. (b. Oct. 31, 1950, Toronto; d. Mar. 6, 1994.) This rotund, talented, and immensely likable comic actor spent too much time in substandard movies-even after achieving stardom, but his personal appeal remained intact. Candy established several comic personas with Toronto's Second City comedy troupe and on the "SCTV" show in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
