NOAH CAPPE

Host, actor and voice artist, Noah Cappe has a lot of characters up his sleeve. He’s the ravenous emcee on Food Network and Cooking Channel’s Carnival Eats, the affable police chief on Hallmark Channel and W Network’s The Good Witch, and the bearer of romantic news (aka host) on W Network’s hit series The Bachelorette Canada and The Bachelor Canada.  

If you don’t know Noah yet, perhaps you saw him live in 2009, when he spent 106 days hosting the Olympic Torch Relay, rousing crowds of more than thirty thousand people at venues across Canada. Or maybe he struck a culinary chord with you somewhere between St. John’s and Tofino, as he dug-up the nation’s most coveted recipes with chef Lynn Crawford on Food Network Canada’s ongoing Great Canadian Cookbook, for which he received a Canadian Screen Award nomination for Best Host. But if none of these roles ring a bell, you’ve definitely met Noah in radio and TV ads, which he does on the regular. He’s lent his voice to Honda, Doritos and Coca-Cola, among other household names. And until a few years ago, he was the ruggedly masculine voice of Molson Canadian beer.

So, it’s fair to say that Noah’s been busy. But for a guy on the go as much as he is, Noah’s a happy homebody when time permits. In case you’re looking for him on his next day off, check his house. You’ll probably find him in a pair of sweatpants, hanging out with his wife and two cats, prepping for his next adventure.
