Robb Wells

Biography: Robb Wells currently plays "Ricky" in the hit Canadian television program The Trailer Park Boys.

Robb Wells was born in Moncton, New Brunswick where his dad worked as a civilian officer in charge of the RCMP Forensic Crime Lab. Robb moved to Dartmouth when he was eight years old, and eventually moved to a house on the same street as John Paul Tremblay. While John Paul was out riding around on his dirt bike, Robb was out playing on the soccer fields. By the time he was in high school, Robb was one of Nova Scotia's best soccer players. He not only represented Nova Scotia at the Canadian national championships, but he represented Canada at a World Junior Tournament in New Jersey, which Canada won.

Since he didn't want to be known as a jock, Robb also developed his artistic side at an early age. In fact, in Grade Nine, he wrote a play for his church - Saint Andrews Anglican Church in Colby Village outside Dartmouth. The church pastor cancelled the play after its first show,
however, on the grounds that there was too much swearing. In high school, Robb started hanging around with John Paul Tremblay and Mike Clattenburg. Like John Paul, Robb had his first major acting role in Mike's short film, One Last Shot. After that it was on to the feature, Trailer Park Boys. Neither Robb nor John Paul has appeared in a film without the other. Shared film credits include Thom Fitzgerald's Beefcake and the U.S. feature Virginia's Run.

Since the last season of Trailer Park Boys, Robb has had little down time. He recently starred as Joe in the U.S. feature film Hole-In-One, and appeared as a featured guest of the band Our Lady Peace on their recent cross-Canada Fear Of The Trailer Park tour. In February, Robb joined John Paul (Julian) and Mike Smith (Bubbles) as guest stars in the new video, The Darkest One, by The Tragically Hip. He is also collaborating with John Paul on at least of couple of feature film screenplays.

In October 2006, Robb Wells' career will reach a milestone, as the movie The Trailer Park Boys: The Movie will be released in wide distribution.
