Boyd Bloom

Played by Roger Cross

character

Boyd is the squad room Supervisor. It’s a thankless job. A glorified babysitter, to hear him tell it. A few years ago, a bullet from a 14-year-old banger sidelined Boyd from the field work he loved. Now he’s deskbound and in charge of scheduling the detectives. And having a wild card like Angie on his roster is like rubbing salt in a wound. 

Boyd is well aware of the dangers of field work, and knows that rules and proper procedure are there for a reason. He thinks Angie’s a good cop, but also thinks she’s too much of a loose cannon. She may be lucky now, but one of these days that luck’s going to run out. Boyd is responsible for partnering Angie up with Vega. He knows that their respective skill sets complement each other, and as much as he gives them grief, he’s really rooting for his “dream team.”

Cross was born and raised in Jamaica and, with his family, moved to Vancouver at the age of 11. He enjoyed drama in school but never considered it a viable career. His heart was set on flying, and he studied aviation at Trinity Western University. While waiting for a flying job, Cross began working as an extra and doing stunts. He went on to study acting at the Breck Academy and landed a few roles before the one that ultimately changed the course of his life. After surviving an extremely challenging experience filming The International Rescue, on location in China, Vietnam and Burma, Cross decided to give acting his full focus for a year. His acting career has since taken off, and he now enjoys flying in his spare time.
