DC’s Le­gends Of To­mor­row

TV Plus (South Africa) - - MOVIE MENU -

Sea­son 1 Vuzu AMP (*103) 20:30 The name Vic­tor Gar­ber may not be known world­wide, but if you look at all the fa­mous roles he’s played on TV and in movies, you’ll prob­a­bly recog­nise his face. And thanks to sci-fi show DC’s Le­gends Of To­mor­row (2016-cur­rent), it’s a face we’re see­ing a lot of in his role as Pro­fes­sor Martin Stein, bet­ter known by his su­per­hero alias Firestorm.

Vic­tor’s TV ca­reer is cer­tainly on 1

fire! Be­sides Le­gends Of To­mor­row, he’s played Prof Stein in mul­ti­ple episodes of The Flash (2014-cur­rent) in 2015 and let’s not for­get the role that made him fa­mous: Jack Bris­tow in 105 episodes of spy se­ries Alias (2001-2006).

He’s still in touch with his Alias 2

co-star Jen­nifer Gar­ner and her now-ex-hubby Ben Af­fleck – and they adore him! Vic­tor is god­fa­ther to their daugh­ter Vi­o­let (10).

The 67-year-old Cana­dian, who’s 3

gay, had been dat­ing model Rainer An­dreesen for 14 years be­fore they wed in 2015. How did they an­nounce it? On Twit­ter with the tweet: “Yes we did! #just­got­mar­ried #elo­pe­d­intofino”.

Vic­tor loves singing and danc­ing – 4

he was in pop band Sugar Shoppe in 1967 and started per­form­ing in theatre plays in 1972

But his life hasn’t been all sun­shine 5

and roses. He’s had type 1 di­a­betes since he was 12 and is a proud sup­porter of di­a­betes sup­port groups, say­ing, “We knew very lit­tle about it and it was dif­fi­cult to ac­cept, but now it’s im­por­tant to talk about the disease, es­pe­cially to chil­dren who are trau­ma­tised and think that their lives are over.”

And when asked to name his most 6

dif­fi­cult role, Vic­tor con­fesses that learn­ing to speak with an Ir­ish ac­cent to play ship­builder Thomas An­drews in 1997 epic film Ti­tanic was “tax­ing”.
