The 3rd Annual Zoomer List: Canada’s Top 45 Over 45: Christopher Plummer

Christopher Plummer, 82, Actor

Genie, Emmy and Tony have been kind to the former Zoomer cover man and, this year, Oscar finally paid him his due. In March he became the oldest actor to ever win an Academy Award for his supporting role in the film Beginners. Still, despite reaching a career high, there’s no time to rest on his laurels.

With a number of film roles on the go, plus the success of his recent, critically lauded one man show A Word or Two, Plummer may have to make some more space in his ever-expanding trophy case. “I love my profession. It keeps me young… I’ve had a wonderful life, seen the world and they’ve paid for it!”
