Frank Cranebear in “Sullivan’s Crossing”


Tom Jackson stars as Frank Cranebear in The CW’s new series “Sullivan’s Crossing.”


There are entertainment legends and then there is Tom Jackson, a triple-threat actor, musician and activist whose achievements in each discipline are downright head-spinning. His career is unparalleled and abundantly decorated.


As a folk-pop singer-songwriter, he has released sixteen albums, the latest of which is a 21-track retrospective of how he sees the world around him.


Jackson is renowned for countless marquee TV roles on hit series including “Like North of 60,” “Shining Time Station” and “Red Earth Uncovered.” Guest roles include “Outlander,” “Cardinal,” “Supergirl,” “Star Trek: The Next Generation” and “Law & Order.” His film credits include “Cold Pursuit,” opposite Liam Neeson, as well as “Deadfall,” “Mee-Shee: The Water Giant” and “Grizzly Falls.”


Jackson is understandably proud of all of that, yet it is his extensive charitable work that is arguably his crowning achievement. With over $250 million in combined cash/in-kind value for food banks and disaster relief raised to date, its no wonder that Jackson, currently an Ambassador for the Red Cross, is a Companion of the Order of Canada.


Additional honors, including Juno and Gemini Humanitarian Awards, Governor General’s Performing Arts Award for Lifetime Artistic Achievement, and the Queen’s Diamond and Platinum Jubilee medals have been bestowed on him over the years contributing to his status as one of Canada’s most influential, distinguished and revered sons.
