Drummond Macdougall’s low-key humour and reliable, hardworking nature have helped him emerge as a solid, talented and professional actor who adds value to every production. Having recently finished his 38th film and television production and 31st Commercial project, Drummond has built a broad base of acting experience, as well as many dramatic and musical stage roles.
Drummond's tremendous “been there– done that” depth of experience allows him to play the “suffer no fools” loving dad you just don’t want to screw with when he’s protecting his family (Chris Cooper in American Beauty), or the burnt-out but relentless lawyer who’s still quick with the joke. He is the military General, the senior FBI operative, Head Detective or Coroner, and is great as the tough but loving Coach (Million Dollar Baby)
As a former high-level investment banker, put Drummond in a suit and he’s a commanding CEO or ruthless business tycoon ... dressed down, he commands that Sam Shepard/Nicholas Campbell rugged cowboy/blue-collar charm. Drummond's sense of humour underlies it all – a guy who can have a good laugh at himself and the world – and this brings a humanity to all his characters. His smart, strong and sensitive character will surprise you as he reveals both the light and dark side of the human condition.
Some of Drummond's recent lead roles became award-winning entries in film festivals such as our own TIFF, VIFF, WIFF and VAFF, including: the workaholic Restaurant chain patriarch, Renard Jardine, reconnecting with his love of family in John Apple Jack; the
protective Editor in Bloody Knuckles; a confused 1950’s husband in No Men Beyond This Point; the Hunter, in Uulx: The Scratcher, who changes his long-held beliefs after being deeply affected by a surreal epiphany. Other notable roles included the workaholic Father awakening and shifting his priorities to reconnect with love for his son, in December Bride; a retirement community suitor, who is taught a lesson we all need to learn, in STI-Cougarlife; a suspicious Cop in Volition; the head of a Crime Family in ARROW; and the trusted back stage Manager of Wendy Williams Story.
Besides the psychopath Photographer role in The Poacher, Drummond has performed other diverse lead roles such as: a dedicated and intense U.S. Lieut. Colonel interrogating a lying subordinate in A Noble Cause, an 18th Century battle-scarred Scottish Highlander in Pendant; an 1850’s slave-abusing Southern father in Marigold; an Alzheimer’s inflicted family man in Puzzle It; a dying Mafia Kingpin, caught in a love triangle, in A Time To Rain, and an inappropriate MD in Symptomatic.
Drummond was also featured in 14 well known TV series, and enjoyed playing a variety of fun roles as ER Doctors, blood spatter specialist, fathers and criminals, in series including Alcatraz, Psych, Bullet's Dad in The Killing, The GOOD Doctor and ARROW.
