Charles David Lubiniecki was born in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, on August 9, 1980, and raised in Yorkton. During high school, Charlie gained fame in Saskatchewan in the musical group Sask Express. His energetic and quirky stage presence made him a stage favourite. In 2000, he graduated from the Canadian College of Performing Arts at Victoria, British Columbia.
He then moved on to co-found the boy band group 4Now, which performed around Canada and the United States and opened for acts including Destiny's Child, Black Eyed Peas and P!nk. The band released two recordings and is currently on hiatus. 4Now was noted to be different from most boy bands of the period because they played their own instruments; Charlie played piano.
Charlie later turned his attention to hosting and acting. He hosted for E! Television, NBC, OUTtv, here! TV, Pink TV, EGO, and Life Network on such shows as F.Y.E! in 2002, SpyTV in 2001, Bump! in 2005-2006 and Crash Test Mommy in 2004-2005. He is hosting Bump! travel show again for the 2007-2008 season.
He was featured in the mini-series Terminal City in 2005 and is in the movie A Four Letter Word (2007) and Kiss the Bride (2008). His most famous role to date is probably that of Toby in Dante's Cove. He wrote the screenplay and stars in the film Mulligans, which had its premiere at the InsideOut LGBT Film Festival in Toronto in May 2007.
Dante's Cove Edit
Charlie David plays Toby in the LGBT horror series Dante's Cove. The character is portrayed in a monogamous and loving relationship with boyfriend Kevin (Gregory Michael). David said in an interview, "What was attractive [about the role] was for me to portray a gay relationship, in which it's not always a different guy every night. Many gays and lesbians do pursue—and have—loving relationships in which we are very committed to each other. I think that is what Toby brings to the show. He is kind of a voice of reason, and has a definite dedication to his boyfriend."
