Childhood and education

Landon was raised alongside his two older brothers Blake and Lance in a small farming community of Jenner by his parents Marcel Liboiron and Lorraine Mack – Lorraine is an artist, who showed support for Landon’s passion for acting by taking him to Vancouver, where he took acting classes and attended auditions. He studied at St. Joseph’s Collegiate in Brooks, Alberta and after matriculation began winning movie and TV series roles, so didn’t enroll at college.

Career as an actor

Landon’s career as an actor was launched in 2007 when he made his debut film appearance playing Brody Murakami in “Crossroads: A Story of Forgiveness”. In the same year, he portrayed Sam in “Don’t Cry Now” and Freddie in “Moondance Alexander”, and appeared in several other movies during the next couple of years, such as “Passchendaele” and “Run Rabbit Run” both in 2008l, and “Altitude” in 2010. In 2011, he was cast to play Will Kidman in “The Howling: Reborn”, and played Dylan in “Burning Bodhi” in 2015, while his latest film appearance has been in “Truth or Dare” in 2018, portraying both Carter and Sam Meehan.

He made his debut TV series appearance in “The Virgin of Akron, Ohio” in 2007, and in 2008 played Simon Strachan in a single episode of “Flashpoint”. He then portrayed Jude in six episodes of the “Wild Roses” drama TV series, before his breakthrough role as Declan Coyne in “Degrassi: The Next Generation” in 2009, appearing in all the episodes until the show ended in 2010.

He went on to play Sam Brandshaw in five episodes of the “Life Unexpected” teen drama TV series in 2010 and 2011, and was then selected to play the regular role as Josh Shannon in 13 episodes of the “Terra Nova” science fiction TV series.

He also portrayed Josh in a single episode of “The Haunting Hour: The Series”, followed in 2013 with the lead role as Peter Rumancek in the “Hemlock Grove” TV horror series, in 33 episodes through 2015. His most recent role has been in the “Frontier” historical period drama TV series, in which he has been playing Michael Smyth since 2016.

Landon has appeared in a single web series – “Last Teenagers of the Apocalypse” in 2016. He has been nominated for two awards– in 2010 for a Gemini Award for the best performance in a children’s or youth program or series, and in 2017 for a Canadian Screen Award for the best performance by an actor in a continuing leading dramatic role.

Love life and wife

After Landon began acting in the “Hemlock Grove” TV series, rumors started circulating the internet that the actor is gay – being very close to his best friend Avan Jogia, a Canadian actor, made the rumors seem true. In the series, Landon and Bill Skarsgard play two characters who have a kind of a romance going on between them – neither of them seem to have a problem with it but are rather enjoying the plot. Landon has also stated that it wasn’t in the script for the sexual tension to be developed between them, but it rather just happened.

Landon currently appears to be single and his sexuality is still under a question mark – it is known that he was once in a relationship with Charlotte Arnold, a Canadian actress. When asked during an interview about his celebrity crush, Landon admitted that he is an admirer of Ellie Kemper, who is popular for starring in “The Office” TV series.

Hobbies and other interests

Landon is a fan of all kinds of art, which he credits to his mother – he enjoys visiting museums and attending photography exhibitions.

He tried numerous things while he was a teenager, such as painting, photography, dancing, and singing, but wasn’t as good at any of them as he was at acting. His personal favorite actors and actresses are Morgan Freeman, Johnny Depp, and Tilda Swinton, while his favorite movies are “The Shawshank Redemption”, the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise, and all the Marvel movies including “The Avengers’.

As he was raised in a farming community, Landon was physically very active before he became an actor, as he helped his family in the fields as well as his friends and neighbors – today, he occasionally goes to the gym and is very keen on swimming.

He is a lover of animals, and has a pet dog while his favorites are swans.

Appearance and net worth

Landon is 28 years old. He has medium long brown hair and blue eyes, is 5ft 10ins (1.79m) tall, and weighs around 156lbs (71kgs) – his net worth is over $1 million, as of late-2019.
