Actor. He will be best remembered for his role as 'Isaac Andrews' in the television mini-series, "Random Passage" (2002), which also starred actor Brendan Fehr and actress Sarah Polley. He was born to William Clarence Noble and Maud Rogers Noble in Centreville (a fishing village east of Gander), in the Bonavista-Trinity area of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. He was educated locally and while growing up he took an interest in acting. He moved to Corner Brook, Newfoundland and Labrador, and studied acting at Sir Wilfred Grenfell College from 1997 to 2001. Following his graduation from college, he moved to Toronto, Ontario, to pursue his acting career in 2001. After being in the city for only a short time he began to get film roles and he also helped to co-found a theatre group called The Young Company. He became involved in stage productions and appeared in several Shakespearean plays including, "Twelfth Night," "Hamlet," and "As You Like It," among many others. He made his film debut in the television movie, "The Interrogation Of Michael Crowe" in 2002, but the role was uncredited. He then appeared as 'Benoit' in TVO/TFO's film drama, "Telle-Litte Ta Voix Dans La Nuit," (2002), as 'Adam' in "Twist" (2003), as 'Lard' in "Prom Queen": The Marc Hall Story" (2004), and as 'Darrel Graves' in an episode of the "ReGenesis" television series entitled, "Baby Bomb" in 2004. His last role was as 'Cliff' in the romantic drama film, "Sugar" (2004). The film which was based on the short stories of Canadian artist and filmmaker Bruce La Bruce and directed by John Palmer was his first starring role and he was considered a rising star until his promising career was tragically cut short. On July 30, 2004, while on a camping trip at Fair Island, Newfoundland and Labrador, he ingested himself with the sap of the poisonous monkhood plant. He later fell ill at his aunt's cabin and was rushed to a local hospital but passed away from aconitine poisoning at the age of 25. The wild blue-flowering plant which grows throughout Atlantic Canada was also used on the tips of arrows and sword during war. The plant sap once ingested causes immediate death by causing respiratory failure or cardiac arrest. The episode of "ReGenesis" was dedicated to his memory. He was buried in the Anglican Cemetery in Centreville, Newfoundland and Labrador. His mother Maud passed away on April 30, 1999, at the age of 47, and she was buried near her son. The actor said in an interview a month before his death, "I don't believe in characters; I believe in actions. I don't try to think of a character arc when I'm filming. As an actor your job is to do that moment ... and it's up to the editors to do the rest...I prefer films that make you think and are hard to watch, that are about things that we don't like to talk about." A college scholarship fund was set up in his memory by his family and friends for the Theatre Department at the Sir Wilfred Grenfell College School of Fine Arts in Corner Brook, Newfoundland and Labrador, where he had also studied acting.
