Andre Clarence Noble was a Canadian television and film actor. He was born in Centreville, Newfoundland and Labrador and studied acting at Sir Wilfred Grenfell College in Corner Brook, Newfoundland and Labrador from 1997 to 2001. He moved to Toronto, Ontario in 2001 to pursue his career in acting. In his short time living there he appeared in several films, television roles and stage productions, and co-founded a theatre group called The Young Company. He was considered a rising star on the strength of his first starring role, in the Canadian romantic drama Sugar, based on short stories by Bruce La Bruce and directed by John Palmer. However, just weeks after the film's debut, Noble died of aconitine poisoning after eating some monkshood while on a hike with his aunt on Fair Island in Newfoundland. He fell ill at his aunt's cabin on Fair Island, then died en route to hospital. In his memory, Noble's friends and family set up a scholarship fund in his name for the Theatre Department at the Sir Wilfred Grenfell College School of Fine Arts.
