He voiced Obi-Wan Kenobi in the National Public Radio dramatizations of Star Wars (1981), The Empire Strikes Back (1983) and Return of the Jedi (1996). In 1992, he won the Gemini - the Canadian equivalent of the Emmy - for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Dramatic Program or Mini-Series in connection with his work in Saying Goodbye. He won a 1995 Gemini for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role for the TV-movie Coming of Age. Behrens received Gemini nominations in 1986 for Best Performance by a Supporting Actor for the TV-movie Turning to Stone, and in 2005 for Best Performance by an Actor in a Guest Role (Dramatic Series) for This Is Wonderland.
His path took him everywhere from the Bristol Old Vic to Canadian Players Tours in the 1950s and 1960s, the TV and radio services of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in their golden age; Toronto’s Crest Theatre; Halifax’s Neptune (where he and his wife were founding members under the direction of Leon Major); the Stratford and Shaw Festivals; and a decade in Hollywood, where his appearances in 1970s series from Dallas, Starsky and Hutch and The Bionic Woman to Columbo and Marcus Welby, MD, among many others, still grace late-night TV.
When Behrens suffered a major stroke a month before his death, an attendant who recognized him asked if he used to be an actor. Despite difficulty talking and moving, he responded, with his trademark tongue and attitude, “I still AM an actor!” Bunny, as he insisted on being called, was married to Canadian actress Deborah Cass (nee Bernice Katz) for almost 50 years until her death in 2004. He is survived by sons Mark, of Dallas, Texas; Matthew, of Perth; and Adam, of London; and by grandchildren Taylor, Spenser and Kate.
