Biography by Sandra Brennan

Irish actor Gerard Parkes played supporting roles on stage (beginning in 1948), radio, television, and feature films of the '70s, '80s, and '90s. He found his greatest success in Canada where he lived since 1956. One of his most recognizable roles was as Doc, the only human on Jim Henson's Fraggle Rock TV series, a role he played from 1983-87. He played another character named Doc in 1999's The Boondock Saints, and reprised the role in the 2009 sequel, The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day.
