Colm's first marriage was to actress Sidonie Boll. He is currently married to choreographer Donna Feore. With their three children, they live in Stratford, Ontario, Canada.

A classically trained stage star in his adopted home of Canada, Colm Feore became an increasingly familiar presence to movie and TV audiences as a prolific supporting actor in the 1990s.

Though he was born in the U.S. and spent the first years of his life in Ireland, Feore and his family moved to Ottawa when he was three and Canada became his official home. After studying acting at Canada's National Theater School, Feore built a distinguished Canadian stage career, performing in over 40 productions during 13 seasons with the prestigious Stratford Festival.

Characters - The Borgias Fan Wiki
  • " I do dead Canadians. If he's dead and he's Canadian and he's famous, I'll be playing him at some point. I joke, but I have played about five or six famous Canadians so there's a certain amount of 'wait a minute, he's ours'. But it was an accident of birth. I've lived in Canada for 40 years."
  • "One of the things that I like about acting is that I work at it all the time. I might be chopping onions as Trudeau and stirring a pot as somebody else. I'm trying things on for size. If you dissect my characterization of Trudeau I could show you where this piece is me, this piece is Hamlet, this piece is Cyrano de Bergerac. Hopefully, they are seamlessly stitched together to create the illusion of Trudeau doing what we needed him to do."
  • "My parents are Irish, so there would be music, jokes, stories, tall tales and a musicality in it. We all tried to outdo each other, and my parents seemed to be reasonably amused by this. I don't think they thought anybody would make a career out of it. They worried that acting would be a very disappointing and hard life. To this day, they are not convinced."
  • Colm Feore On Playing King Of The Frost Giants, Ymir - "The costume comes in this variety of pieces, and they just put each one on and glue me into it, paint me blue, and stitch me up, and then wheel me out. It's remarkable, and takes forever, and slightly longer to get off. I've been doing a lot of work recently and trying to apologize to people for the blue eyeliner and the blue fingernails and the blue everything, and I finally just gave up. I just said, 'You know, I'm in here every day shopping, yes, I am a stripper and I work nights, okay? So if you don't mind, give me the wine, give me the bread, and I'm leaving.' I said to Branagh, what if I do an homage to Tony Hopkins with a whisper of Max Von Sydow filtered through Paul Scofield, and you know Ken went, 'Yeah, that's about it!'"
  • Talking about his character Cardinal della Rovere he did not want him "to get too goody two-shoes and Neil took care of that part of the equation."
