Combining acting with a distinguished career as a singer songwriter, Hugh Dillon is a dark horse that has been galvanized as one of North America's most respected performers. Dillon first earned notoriety in Canada and abroad as the lead singer in the multi-platinum rock and roll band, The Headstones. Signed to Universal Music in the early nineties, the band released six albums. It was early on in The Headstones' success when Hugh caught the attention of legendary filmmaker Bruce McDonald. Bruce cast Hugh in "Dance Me Outside" in 1994. Next came his critically acclaimed lead performance as Joe Dick in McDonald's 1996 feature film, "Hard Core Logo." Quentin Tarantino distributed the movie through his company and brought international attention to the indie classic and its lead actor. The Genie nominated actor has since starred in the critically acclaimed Sundance Film Festival award winning movie, "Down To The Bone" alongside Vera Farmiga (The Departed) as well as notable roles in Feature Films "Lone Hero" and "Assault On Precinct 13".

After practically being brought up in the Quebec acting world thanks to mom, Diane Lavallee, and dad Marcel Leboeuf, both professional actors, it's no surprise that a young Laurence Leboeuf grew up with one interest: acting. By 11, she snagged her first French acting job working on Radio-Canada's acclaimed series "L'Ombre de L'Epervier." When that production wrapped, Leboeuf moved on to another series, "Tag." She played Isabelle, a rebellious daughter coming to terms with her mother's absence and her family's growing issues. In 2005, Leboeuf moved into English speaking roles by playing 'Cody Meyers" in the YTV series "15/LOVE," for which she received a nomination for best supporting actress at the Canadian Gemini awards. Although she didn't take home the prize, her aspiration to have a successful foray into the English market was realized. Soon after performing in three seasons of "15/Love," Leboeuf was cast in the feature film "The Secret" alongside David Duchovny, and "Human Trafficking" with Mira Sorvino and Robert Carlyle, directed by Christian Duguay. In the spring of 2006, Leboeuf worked on the Quebec feature "Ma Fille Mon Ange" and in late fall shot her very first U.S feature entitled "The Trouble with Cali." She was directed by Paul Sorvino, who also played her father in the movie.
