Actor, writer, musician. Born in Calgary, Alberta, Bond became a fixture in the Toronto musical theatre scene, particularly after he got rave reviews for his performance as Rum Tum Tugger in CATS. Prior to that, he appeared on stage all over Canada and in Sydney, Australia, in productions such as Oklahoma, Carousel, and Anne of Green Gables, The Musical, of which, the latter enjoyed a successful run at the Charlottetown Festival. His television credits included small parts in Judge and Homefires. Later on he developed a brand new following among Canadian children when he became a regular on the TV Ontario series, The Polka Dot Door. His last appearance was on Toronto's Factory Theatre stage where he was trying out a one-man show which he wrote and produced, called Heros. During production, he was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. He died two months later. In 1991, the Greg Bond Memorial Award was established, honoring actors who "best exemplify the integrity and dedication to excellence which Greg represented." In 1999, his family released a CD compilation of his music, which included his signature track, Funny Day Saturday, a composition that he wrote, and which he performed often.

Cause of Death: Brain cancer.
