Introduction
On your screens!

Adding to his current appearances on CBC's The Detectives, Radio-Canada's Mehdi & Val, Amazon Prime's No Easy Days and the charming holiday film Noël en boîte, Pierre had the chance to be part of Darren Aronofsky's mysterious and polarizing film mother! now available on Netflix. 

Next up : La Malédiction de Jonathan Plourde (coming this fall to VrakTV).

Rave reviews!

Pierre in Théâtre français de Toronto's La Seconde Surprise de l'amour : 

“The cast is uniformly excellent. (…) Simpson’s Hortensius is self-effacing and quietly sly” - Christopher Hoile, Stage Door


As the challenging title role in Molière's Dom Juan, Pierre got glowing reviews:

"Fans of Simpson will be pleased to see that (…) his Dom Juan is suave and graceful (…) He speaks the complex prose in which Dom Juan is written with masterful clarity to the point that he makes Molière’s version of the famous character as much a free-thinking philosopher, who is an atheist and materialist, as much as a moral libertine.” - Christopher Hoile, Stage-door.com 

Pierre impressed audiences in 'Le Placard (The Closet)':

"But it's Simpson, onstage for almost the entire 90 minutes, who will make your jaw drop. From his stiff posture to the initial uneasy timbre of his voice to his perfectly timed double takes, he's a brilliant comic actor. It's a shame we don't see him more often onstage." - Glenn Sumi, Now Toronto

Between guest appearances on Reign and Season 9 of Murdoch Mysteries, (CBC) and recurring roles on Motel Monstre and Toi & Moi  (Radio-Canada), Pierre continues to keep audiences captivated. In 2015 he had appeared in Mayday (Discovery), and short films The Last Patrol and The Rarebit Fiend. This adds to his previous wide spectrum of characters ; from a misguided EMS driver in Hannibal opposite Laurence Fishburne and Mads Mikkelson, to a suspicious classical guitar teacher in Fugitive at 17 for director Jim Donovan on Lifetime and Showcase, and from cunning Captain David Kirke, conqueror of Quebec City on Le Rêve de Champlain (TFO)to a conflicted coureur des bois in the National Film Board's Let the Daylight Into the Swamp (TIFF 2012). He's also flexed his fluently bilingual hosting muscles in shoots for Parks Canada and live events in Niagara Falls, Toronto, Montreal and Las Vegas. 

On stage, Pierre cracked up audiences all summer long in Canadian Stage's A Midsummer Night's Dream in High Park, deftly handled heart-wrenching material in the Next Stage Festival's Memorialand charmed audiences with his rendition of Brel's Ne Quitte Pas in the International Tour of When it Rains in Edinburgh, South Carolina and Mumbai.
