Lucas Bryant has made a name for himself in both Canada and the United States. Born and raised in Elmira, Ontario, Bryant studied theatre and drama at Sheridan College in Oakville.
He starred on Syfy’s popular mystery series “Haven” for all five seasons. Based on the novella The Colorado Kid, by author Stephen King, Bryant played Nathan Wuornos, the wry, hardened local cop who somewhat reluctantly becomes the partner of new-to-town FBI agent Audrey Parker, played by Emily Rose.
Bryant has numerous television credits to his name, including “Queer as Folk” for Showtime; “M.V.P.” for SOAPnet and CBC; “Sex, Love and Secrets” for UPN; and CTV’s “The Eleventh Hour.” He has also starred in the Hallmark Channel Original Movies “Tulips in Spring” and “Summer Love” and last year’s “Time for You to Come Home for Chrismtas” for Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, in addition to Lifetime’s “More Sex & The Single Mom” and “A Very Merry Daughter of the Bride.” Bryant also played the lead role of Ken Read in “Crazy Canucks,” inspired by the true story of the World Cup Downhill Circuit during the 1974-1976 seasons. He had a lead role in “Playing House,” based on Canadian author Patricia Pearson’s bestselling novel of the same name. Later, he appeared in the film The Vow, starring Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum, shot the television movie “Merry In-Laws” directed by Leslie Hope, and guest starred in the popular CBC period series “Frankie Drake.” Lucas also recurs on the comedy procedural “Private Eyes,” starring Jason Priestly.
On the stage, Bryant has acted in numerous theatre productions across Canada including The Crucible, The King & I and Alumnae Theatre’s Your Tricks Might Be Poison. Bryant flexed his funny bone and joined forces with some pals to form the Skarsgard Players theater company, named in honor of veteran Swedish actor Stellan Skarsgard, and launched an all-male production of Are You There God? It’s Me Margaret, based on the Judy Blume novel.
During his hiatuses, Bryant worked with director Mika Kaurismäki on festival darling, The Girl King staring Sarah Gadon and Michael Nyqvist and made guest star appearances on The CW show “Beauty and the Beast,” CBS’s legendary series “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” and the CBC series “Cracked.” He also starred in the TV movie “Secret Summer” and went on to lead a talented cast in the critically acclaimed CBC/WGN series from Jennifer Holness and Sudz Sutherland, “Shoot the Messenger.”
Last season, Bryant recurred on ABC’s fan-favorite Marvel’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” and can also be seen in the upcoming comedy feature, 7 Days to Vegas, starring alongside Jennifer Tilly, for director Eric Balfour.
