Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Canadian-born Brendan Fehr, originally seeking out a modeling career, found his calling with acting, and auspiciously put his brooding good looks and watchability to use with a breakthrough role on the sci-fi/teen drama series "Roswell" (The WB. 1999-2001; UPN, 2001-2002). The actor got his start just two years prior, with a guest role on an episode of the short-lived 1997 Vancouver-filmed teen series "Breaker High" (UPN) before landing work on the Fox sci-fi drama "Millennium" (also lensed in Vancouver), appearing in episodes from each of the series' three seasons (1996-1999). He was featured alongside Cheryl Ladd in the Fox Family Channel sci-fi thriller "Perfect Little Angels" after taking a role with the actress in the USA Network TV movie "Every Mother's Worst Fear"(both 1998). While Fehr didn't play the title predator in the latter, he proved an effective villain in the 1999 fact-based ABC movie "Our Guys: Outrage in Glen Ridge." His sinister turn as the police lieutenant's son, a repugnantly cruel and loudmouthed athlete accused along with a gang of his friends of raping a mentally challenged neighborhood girl, was appropriately disturbing and not easily forgotten, the actor more than holding...

Notes

Fehr on his efforts to lessen the camp potential of "Roswell", an especially important task as portrayer of Michael, the gravely serious alien in human form, a character to whom Fehr cannot exactly relate: "It's part of the challenge and the fun to take a cheesy line and make it seem real, to make it believable." --quoted as part of the "Who's Hot" feature on ultimateTV.com, October 6, 1999.

"Fox Mulder was searching in a sense for the truth in concerns with aliens and his sister and all the rest of it. And you've got me [and my fellow aliens] on a search of our own. It's not our sisters, but it's us, in fact.

"So, in that sense there's a comparison, but when you take in the age factor and all the rest of it--high school--it's got a little different twist on it" --Fehr on the comparisons between "Roswell" and Fox's popular sci-fi drama "The X Files", quoted in Winnipeg Sun, October 7, 1999

"Some days I think I can blow De Niro off the screen, but some days I don't know if I can act my way out of a paper bag." --Fehr quoted in Premiere, September 2000.
