Please tell me a bit about actor Victor Garber’s background. What is he doing these days?
—Dana Bays, Middlesboro, Ky.
The native Canadian, 64, is one of three children of Joe and Hope Garber. His mother was an actress and singer, which rubbed off on the “Alias” star, who began acting when he was 9 years old and singing in the folk band The Sugar Shoppe. Now with six Emmy and four Tony nominations, Garber starred recently in the TV series “Deception,” “Damages” and “Web Therapy” and played Canadian Ambassador Ken Taylor in the Oscar-winning film “Argo.”
