Citizen Gangster (Edwin Boyd)
Inspired by true events, down-on-his-luck Edwin Boyd wanted to be an actor and felt he deserved more in life. With a combination of desperation and courage, he walked into his first bank and successfully persuaded the teller into handing over the cash. Eddie’s crime career was launched and he quickly became one of the most notorious gangsters in history.
He graduated in Philosophy and Religious Studies from the University of Toronto and specialized in Existential Philosophy for his Masters in Philosophy from York University, Toronto. After writing several screenplays, he next wrote and directed the award winning short film Countdown.
