News: Where You’ve Seen the Cast of Law & Order Toronto: Criminal Intent Before
The news is out: CityTV announced the main cast for its upcoming Canadian-produced series based on Dick Wolf’s Law & Order universe. Law & Order Toronto: Criminal Intent follows two elite detectives from the Specialized Criminal Investigations unit of the metro Toronto PD. They’re the ones who investigate the high-profile crimes and homicides. The six actors making up the law and the order sides of the coin feature familiar faces — in Canada and beyond.
Aden Young (Detective Sergeant Henry Graff)
How We Know Him: Young impressed audiences and critics near and far when he played Daniel Holden on Sundance Channel’s Rectify. His character was released from prison after spending almost twenty years locked up on death row for the rape and murder of his then girlfriend. The show followed his journey post-prison when his conviction was overturned thanks to new DNA evidence. Watch Rectify by subscribing to AMC Plus on Prime Video.
His Other TV Credits: The Toronto-born actor’s other small screen credits include miniseries like The Starter Wife, The Disappearance and Reckoning.
Kathleen Munroe (Detective Sergeant Frankie Bateman)
How We Know Her: Munroe is a character actor who has a ton of TV credits to her name. We really noticed her during her first appearance on the CW’s Supernatural. In “The Kids are Alright,” she played the tortured mom of a daughter replaced by a scary Stepford-like changeling. Munroe was a highlight in an episode full of highlights. She pulled off attempting to drown her “daughter” because the girl was terrifying and she knew that was not her daughter. Supernatural is currently streaming on Netflix.
Her Other TV Credits: Most recently, the Hamilton, Ontario native played a detective in the Apple TV+ series, City on Fire. Her procedural street cred comes from appearances in shows like CBS’ FBI and SWAT as well as NBC’s Law & Order: Organized Crime, where she played a District Attorney.
Karen Robinson (Inspector Vivienne Holness)
How We Know Her: There’s no debate. Robinson was part of the super talented ensemble that made up the Canadian/Pop/Netflix comedy Schitt’s Creek. If you haven’t seen the Emmy-winning series yet, you’re going to need to rectify that sooner rather than later. Robinson played Ronnie, the town’s councilor who was gloriously sarcastic and always ready with an eye roll or side eye. Schitt’s Creek is currently streaming on Prime/FreeVee and Hulu.
Her Other TV Credits: The Toronto performer recurred as the awesome girlfriend to Rome’s dad on ABC’s A Million Little Things. She’s also appeared as Superintendent Edwina Shanks on the Canadian procedural-comedy Pretty Hard Cases (which can be found on Prime Video in the U.S.). She was also law enforcement on the Peacock Original series from David E. Kelley, The Calling.
K.C. Collins (Deputy Crown Attorney Theo Forrester)
How We Know Him: On the Canadian series Lost Girl (which originally aired in the States on Syfy), Collins played Hale, a homicide detective with quite the backstory that would unfold as the sci-fi show evolved. Lost Girl is currently streaming on the CW.
His Other TV Credits: His more recent gigs include USA Network’s Chucky, Fox’s The Cleaning Lady and CBS’ Clarice. You may have also seen him in Pretty Hard Cases, Saving Hope, Single Ladies and The Strain.
Nicola Correia-Damude (Forensic Pathologist Dr. Lucy Da Silva)
How We Know Her: Do we know her better as Alec and Izzy’s mom on Shadowhunters? Or as the love of Queen Maeve’s life on The Boys? We can’t pick one so how about both? Shadowhunters is streamable on Hulu. The Boys is on Prime Video.
Her Other TV Credits: Correia-Damude is from Toronto so it’s only natural for her to appear in Canadian series like Burden of Truth, Coroner, Private Eyes and Republic of Doyle. Other shows she’s been a part of are The Bold Type, October Faction, Nurses and Resident Alien.
Araya Mengesha (Tech expert Mark Yohannes)
How We Know Him: We probably know Mengesha best from his appearances as Tyler Stroyer on Netflix’s Tiny Pretty Things, a dark, twisted series about the dancers at a ballet school that ran for one season on Netflix.
His Other TV Credits: He’s also made a name for himself on shows like Anne with an E, Man Seeking Woman, Rogue and Hemlock Grove.
Production is going on right now look for Law & Order Toronto: Criminal Intent to air in Canada in the Spring of 2024. Hopefully the show will make its way to the United States shortly after that.
