Paul Massie was a Canadian film actor born in St. Catherine's, Ontario on July 7th, 1932. His first film work was an uncredited appearance in the 1957 drama High Tide at Noon. His first major role came in 1958 when he played Gene Summers in Anthony Asquith's war drama Orders to Kill. For his diligent work as an American bomber pilot, Massie received the BAFTA award for most "promising newcomer". He followed this up with appearances in two episodes of the TV series Rendezvous and one episode of The Flying Doctor. In 1959 he played David Harris in Sapphire. Massie's first and only role in a horror feature came in 1960 when he played the dual roles of Doctor Henry Jekyll and Mister Edward Hyde in Terence Fisher's film The Two Faces of Dr. Jekyll for Hammer Film Productions. Unusually, he played Jekyll in make-up as an old, unattractive, bearded man, and his villainous counterpart Hyde as his young, handsome self. After his work with Hammer, Massie's career brought him further into television work, making appearances in episodes of Armchair Theatre, No Hiding Place, Seaway and The Doctors. In the late 1960s, Paul Massie semi-retired from active television work and took up a position as an instructor at the University of South Florida in Tampa, Florida. Massie fully retired in 1996 and resided at his home in Halifax, Nova Scotia. He passed away on June 8th, 2011 at the age of 78.
