Lucas Bryant was a Canadian actor who became a familiar face on TV in both his home country and in America. Born in Elmira, Ontario, Canada, Bryant grew up in Canada, but enjoyed joint Canadian/American citizenship, as his parents were both born in America. After earning a degree in acting from Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario, Bryant began appearing on a number of TV series, including "Queer as Folk" (Showtime, 2000-05), "Playmakers" (ESPN, 2003), "An American in Canada" (CBC, 2003-04), "The Eleventh Hour" (CTV, 2002-05), and "Odyssey 5" (Showtime, 2002), as well as the TV movies "Crazy Canucks" (CTV, 2004) and "More Sex & the Single Mom" (Lifetime, 2005). Bryant earned his first series regular gig on the short-lived drama "Sex, Love & Secrets" (UPN, 2005), and soon after made his film debut with a role in the dramedy "Sunday Morning" (2006). Afterwards, Bryant returned to TV, starring in the TV movies "Playing House" (CTV, 2006) and "A Very Merry Daughter of the Bride" (Lifetime, 2008), while serving as a series regular on the short-lived hockey-themed drama "MVP" (CBC, 2008). In 2010, Bryant landed his biggest role yet, starring as the wisecracking small town cop Nathan Wuornos in the supernatural drama "Haven" (SyFy, 2010-15), which was loosely based on the Stephen King novel "The Colorado Kid." While holding down that role, Bryant somehow found time to appear in the Channing Tatum/Rachel McAdams romantic dramedy "The Vow" (2012), as well as taking on cameo roles on such TV shows as "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" (CBS, 2000-2015), "Cracked" (CBC, 2013), and "Beauty and the Beast" (The CW, 2012-16). 2016 saw Bryant appear in two Hallmark TV movies, "Tulips in Spring" (Hallmark Channel, 2016) and "Summer Love" (Hallmark Channel, 2016), as well as the political crime drama "Shoot the Messenger" (CBC, 2016), which earned Bryant some stateside attention when the series was re-broadcast on WGN America in 2018.
