Best known for work such as [[DueSouth due South]], Wilby Wonderful, {{Film/Passchendaele}}, and [[SlingsAndArrows Slings and Arrows]], Paul Gross is a Canadian actor/writer/singer/director/producer. Many of his works feature heavily in the [[FanFic/SixDegreesOfCanada Six Degrees of due South/Six Degrees of Canada (C6D) fandom]]--a sprawling fandom that made the transition from print to internet in the 90s and early 2000s, which uses due South (and later things such as Wilby Wonderful and [[Film/MenWithBrooms Men With Brooms]]) and its associated actors as a jumping-off point to create something akin to the Jossverse--as he is perhaps the primary creator the fandom revolves around.

His first major show was arguably [[DueSouth due South]], and after the show failed to be renewed in 1996 and took a one-year hiatus he wound up at the helm of the show as well as being its lead actor. Executive producer, writer, and star, he was the highest paid actor in Canada at the time, but some fans of the show took issue with his decisions as showrunner. The split this hiatus and the resulting changes caused in both the show and the fandom coalesced around the characters of Ray Vecchio and Ray Kowalski and their respective actors as the Ray Wars, one of the most dramatic and influential fandom flame wars on the internet to this day. Thankfully the Ray Wars are long since over, but it's still a hot-button topic for some.

He also delights in [[ChewingTheScenery chewing on the scenery]] and is a [[RealLife real life]] [[LargeHam Large Ham]], as can be seen in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_d-t0959C3A this music video]]. Married to actress Martha Burns. Prefers Canadian actors over American actors, as seen in his writing of the [[DueSouth due South] finale and ending for each of the Rays.

Married to actress Martha Burns. And seems to be anti-American, based on his behavior toward American actors in his series. Also seems to have no clue that he ruined [[DueSouth due South]] for many fans when he started writing episodes,and when he fueled the Ray Wars by changing the original scripted version of the series finale because he wanted to please the Fraser/Kowalski fangirls, and didn't care about any other fans of the show. He also thought he could write for [[DueSouth due South]], but he ignored much about the earlier seasons, which resulted in his scripts being not consistent with the earlier seasons and shoddy.
