Yannick Bisson Facts

  1. He has recalled having enjoyed watching James Bond movies with his father as a kid.
  2. He had moved to Toronto in Ontario, as a teenager and his acting career had kickstarted when he was still in high school, at the age of 13. His father, seeing the great interest of his son in acting, had encouraged him to respond to a newspaper advertisement that was looking for child actors.
  3. Yannick has worked as a builder between acting jobs, in order to support his family.
  4. All his daughters have been featured in the Murdoch Mysteries stories.

  6. As of 2019, his most-cherished episodes of Murdoch Mysteries have been Murdoch of the Living Dead, Mild Mild West, and What Lies Buried.
  7. Yannick has disclosed that when he has been away from his program Murdoch Mysteries, for a stretch of time and then returned, he has needed to make sure that he has maintained the tone and manner of speaking that would match a real detective from 100 years ago.

  8. Yannick has always worn trainers when his feet are not in the camera shot.
  9. He has been an ardent Porsche collector having relished owning a GT4 Cayman and simultaneously believing the 930, 964, and the 993 to epitomize the Porsche for him.
