Two-time Golden Globe nominee and SAG Award nominated actor Chris Noth has been named the recipient of the inaugural Canopy Award for this year’s festival. Noth will accept the award on Friday, September 8 at the Greenport Theatre in Greenport, NY.

I’m so honored to be presented with the Canopy Award at this year’s North Fork TV Festival. I’ve lived and worked in New York for years, and I’ve shot all over New York State and Long Island, so being a part of this particular festival really means a lot to me. I can’t wait to see everyone out east this September.

Noth has a knack for tackling characters that remain as relevant today as when he first played them. He rose to prominence as “Detective Mike Logan” on the original Law and Order, where he spent five seasons before starring opposite Sarah Jessica Parker as the iconic “Mr. Big” on HBO’s groundbreaking series Sex and the City. Noth garnered his first Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor in a Comedy for this role. He continued as “Mr. Big” throughout the series which launched two blockbuster movies, Sex and the City and Sex and the City 2, in which he also starred. Next came a critically lauded turn as “Peter Florrick” opposite Juliana Margolis on the CBS hit drama The Good Wife. Noth’s complex performance earned him a second Golden Globe nod – this one for Best Actor in a Drama, as well as two SAG nominations for Best Ensemble. Most recently, Noth wrapped the NBC series Gone, and is currently shooting the Discovery Channel’s miniseries Manifesto, opposite Paul Bettany. He recently starred in the final season of the FX series Tyrant and appeared in a pivotal role in the hit Sundance feature film White Girl for director Elizabeth Wood and starring Morgan Saylor. He also stars in the independent film Chronically Metropolitan with Mary Louise Parker.

Other television credits include the TNT original film Bad Apple, in which he not only starred but also Executive Produced, as well as TNT’s epic miniseries Caesar, the TNT telefilm Exiled, and the BBC Series Titanic: Blood and Steel. Additional film credits include Lovelace, with Amanda Seyfried and Peter Sarsgaard; Elsa & Fred, with Christopher Plummer and Marcia Gay Harden; Frankie Go Boom; My One and Only, Mr. 3000, Searching for Paradise, Double Whammy, Cast Away, Texas Funeral, Getting to Know You, The Broken Giant, The Confession, Cold Around the Heart, and Naked in New York.

Noth is equally at home on stage and on screen. Since graduation from the Yale School of Drama, he has appeared in numerous plays both on and off Broadway. He most recently starred as “Faustus” in Classic Stage Company’s Off-Broadway production of Dr. Faustus. Notable Broadway credits include That Championship Season with Kiefer Sutherland and Jason Patric, and Gore Vidal’s The Best Man with Elizabeth Ashley and Charles Durning, for which Chris received a Theatre World Award. Off Broadway, Noth starred in the Atlantic Theater’s Production of Farragut North with John Gallagher, Jr., and then again in Los Angeles at the Geffen Theater with Chris Pine. He also starred in What Didn’t Happen at the Playwrights Horizons, and Arms and the Man at the Roundabout Theater. He starred in American Buffalo at the Berkshire Theatre Festival, and played Hamlet at the Shakespeare Festival in Stratford. He has also performed in plays at Yale Rep, The Manhattan Theater Club, Circle Rep, Taper 2 series at Mark Taper Forum, and La Mama.

Noth has been the face of Biotherm Homme in Canada. He was GQ’s 2015 International Man of the Year, is a supporter of the Rainforest Action Network, and is co-owner of The Cutting Room, a well known music venue in New York City that opened in late 1999, with his friend Steve Walter. He resides in New York and Los Angeles.
