Adrian Truss (born October 18, 1953 in London, UK) is a British-Canadian actor and comedian.
He has appeared in many Canadian animated series, including such shows as Totally Spies!, Ruby Gloom, Atomic Betty, Jane and the Dragon, Donkey Kong Country, Rolie Polie Olie, and Camp Lakebottom. While he does have a number of live-action appearances under his belt as well, most of them are minor, with the notable exception of several stage plays.
He is also part of the internationally renowned comedy troupe The Illustrated Men alongside fellow Canadian comedians Bruce Hunter and David Huband, both of whom also have many acting credits to their name in film, television, cartoons, and stage theater.
Incidentally, he appeared alongside Bruce Hunter in Atomic Betty (where Hunter was Robot X-5, his only major animated role) and David Huband in Total Drama Presents: The Ridonculous Race (where Huband was Gerry, who was the teammate of Truss' character Pete).
