About Jim Byrnes

A treasured actor and blues musician, Jim Byrnes' love for acting and music when he was still a small child. In college he found acting jobs easily until the draft sent him to war instead of Hollywood. Byrnes kept his dreams, and himself, alive, and returned to follow his original goals as best he could after his tour of duty was over. A car accident put his acting career on hold again, so he turned his full attention toward music. Over the next few decades, he recorded a number of albums, and acted in films and television. In 1995, he landed a well-deserved spot in the British Columbia Entertainment Hall of Fame. ~ Charlotte Dillon
