The veteran actor, best known to fellow Canadians as the investment banker Adam Cunningham on ‘Traders,’ passed away on Wednesday in Los Angeles.

Bruce Gray, known to Americans as the father of the groom in My Big Fat Greek Wedding and to fellow Canadians for playing investment banker Adam Cunningham on the 1990s Traders TV drama, has died. Gray was 81.

Gray passed away in Los Angeles on Wednesday after a bout with brain cancer, his Toronto agent Jennifer Goldhar confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter.

Born on Sept. 7, 1936 in San Juan Puerto Rico to Canadian parents, Gray returned at age 13 to Toronto, before completing high school at Humberside Collegiate and graduating from the University of Toronto with psychology degree. In 1960, Gray headed to London, England, where he co-starred on stage with a young Donald Sutherland in Androcles and the Lion at the Mermaid Theatre.

During the rest of the 1960s, Gray divided his time between stage work on both sides of the border, and stints on soaps like General Hospital and All My Children. By 1970, Gray was living in New York City, and doing national stage tours for Godspell, The Beggar’s Opera and My Fat Friend, performing opposite Patty Duke.
