Robb Wells

Born in Moncton in 1971, Robb Wells had a father who worked as a civilian officer responsible for the RCMP Forensic Crime Lab. At the age of eight, Robb relocated to Dartmouth, where he attended school alongside Mike Clattenberg and John Paul Tremblay. The trio was notorious for playing pranks on others and causing mischief, displaying an eccentric sense of humour.

As Tremblay and Wells successfully ran a chain of pizza restaurants named J.R. Capone’s, they began creating rudimentary video sketches featuring themselves for entertainment. In 1998, they collaborated with experienced actor John Dunsworth to produce a short film titled “One Last Shot.” This film went on to receive awards for best actor and best cinematography.

A year later they made a mockumentary film called “Trailer Park Boys” featuring newcomers Patrick Roach, Mike Jackson, Cory Bowles, Lucy Decoutere and Jeanne Harrison.

During the filming, they met a sound mixer named Mike Smith, and after the filming was complete they made a deal with Showcase to make “Trailer Park Boys” into a TV Series with Mike Smith on board. After the series was green-lit, the lovable Bubbles was born. Now there are 3 main characters in the Park.
