George Appleby’s life was defined by love, success and adventure, all of which he shared freely with the people he met and worked with. He had a lot of friends.

Though born in Toronto, at age nine, George moved with his family to Bogota, Columbia, when his father was transferred there for work. In Bogota, George was educated in Spanish and English, until his teens, when he returned to Canada.

After high school, tall and handsome George set his sights on acting. He hung around the University of Toronto’s Hart House Theatre, and its then director, Robert Gill, absorbing the world of theatre. But it was the editing suite that eventually took his interest after he landed his first job on the CBC series, The Forest Rangers, in the early 1960s. He would go on to work steadily as an editor right up until his death in December 1999.

George cut many of Canada’s iconic series and feature films, from Adventures in Rainbow Country, Street Legal, and Cold Squad to Outrageous, The Silent Partner, Isabel, and many others. He received numerous awards for his work, including Canadian Film Editors Guild awards, an Etrog and a Genie nomination.
