Heath Lamberts was born James Langcaster in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on December 15, 1941 and is a Canadian actor. He began his show-business career on stage in Canada in the early 1960s, performing regularly at the Stratford Festival and the Shaw Festival. He was a well regarded stage actor, receiving good notices for his roles in "Cyrano de Bergerac" and "Beauty and the Beast." When he began making films, however, he gravitated towards more comedic roles, with appearances in such films as Nothing Personal (1980) and Utilities (1983). He kept quite busy on television, appearing in many comedy and drama series and several made-for-TV movies. He was awarded the C.M.

He died in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, from cancer in 2005.
