According to his obituary, Scarfe moved to Canada with his parents and brothers after being born in England, settling in Vancouver and beginning "a prolific and lifelong career as an actor and director" after attending college at London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art from 1964 to 1966.

Across Europe and North America, he appeared in "over 100 major roles" on stage, including in works by William Shakespeare, Arthur Miller and more.

“I wanted to be a great classical actor in the long tradition of Burbage, Garrick, Kean, Booth, Olivier,” Scarfe said in a 2007 interview with The Sci-Fi World. “Forty-five years ago when I began, it was still possible to think in such a romantic, idealistic way.”

Aside from his stage work, Scarfe made his film debut in 1963's The Bitter Ash, before going on to make memorable turns in Double Impact (1991) and Lethal Weapon 3 (1992). He also appeared in series like Seven Days and Star Trek: The Next Generation.

It adds, "He also leaves behind his brother Colin, son Jonathan Scarfe and his darling grandchildren Kai and Hunter Scarfe, university students at the University of Victoria and McGill, respectively."
