Robb Wells Bio
Wells was born in Moncton, New Brunswick20. March 1971 but grew up in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. His parents moved there when he was just eight years old. His father is said to have worked as a coroner at The RCMP, nothing is known about his mother or siblings – if he has any. A 2006 article by The Globe and the Post reveals that Robb Wells is a distant cousin of Stephen Harper – a former Canadian prime minister.
He attended Cole Harbor District High School with two of his friends and colleagues – John Paul Tremblay and Mike Clattenburg. They were a group in high school with a bizarre sense of humor and always got into trouble when it came to making jokes about people.
After high school, Tremblay and Wells ran a chain of pizza places called JR Capone, but they still had an eye for what they loved doing. While running their pizza business, they spent their free time doing comedy sketches of themselves, and after a while they decided to take the bull by the horn and pursue their dreams in the entertainment industry. So in 1998 they ventured into acting and produced a short film called Last Shot which played veteran John Dunsworth. The film did better than expected. It won Best Actor and Best Cinematography.
The next year they did a second one called the Boys trailer park with the likes of Jeanne Harrison, MikeJackson, Lucy Decoutere, Patrick Roach and Cory Bowles. Wells also appeared in the film as Ricky LaFleur. While filming Trailer Park Boys, they struck a deal with Showcase to turn the film into a TV series. In 2004, Wells appeared in the film Virginia’s Run with Dunsworth and Tremblay, playing characters similar to those they played on Trailer Park Boys. In 2009, he appeared in Boondock Saints 2 .
In 2010 he was in The Drunk and Drug Addicted Happy Fun Time Hour, playing himself alongside his former trailer park Boys comrades. The next year he was in Hobo with a Shotgun as Logan. Later that same year he appeared in the independent film Jackhammer and as a radical Nova Scotian separatist freedom fighter/terrorist in the third season of the FX TV series Archer.
The Canadian actor’s net worth is currently estimated at $2.5 million. This amount will inevitably increase with the work he does. His annual salary has not yet been confirmed.
