Nathaniel Arcand to Guest Star on Wild Food

The star of Heartland and Blackstone will be joining host Tracey Bonneau as a guest star in the first season of Wild Foods: Quest Out West.

Nathaniel Arcand is Plains Cree (Nehiyaw), from the Alexander First Nation Reserve, and one of the most successful aboriginal actors in Canada.

Arcand’s first small break in film was the 1994 role of Tree-Climber in “Savage Land,” alongside Graham Greene. A few roles followed, but his career took off upon landing the role of William MacNeil in the CBC television series “North of 60.” In 1997 he was nominated for a Gemini Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Supporting Role in a Dramatic Series for this role. He gained extensive experience on this successful Canadian television series as well as 0n “Due South.” Arcand also worked with legendary film director Lord Richard Attenborough, acting alongside Pierce Brosnan in “Grey Owl.”

Today Arcand is a well-respected and established actor. He had lead roles in both “Montana Sky” and in Twentieth Century Fox Films’ “Pathfinder.” In the Showcase television series “Moose TV,” he stars as Clifford Mathew who, with his friend George (played by Adam Beach), decide to reopen an abandoned television station in the isolated town of Moose. He also starred as Victor Merasty in the first two seasons of the edgy APTN series “Blackstone.”

Other notable feature roles Arcand has been in include performances in “Black Cloud,” “Skins,” “Ginger Snaps Back: The Beginning,” “Speaking of Sex” and “American Outlaws.” His television work includes the miniseries “DreamKeeper,” “The Lone Ranger” (as Tonto), “100 Days in the Jungle,” “Fear Itself” and “Into the West.”

Nathaniel will join the Wild Foods cast for two episodes in this, the first season of the APTN series.
