Brendan Penny : Paul Dellucci

Brendan Penny recently starred as Detective Brian Lucas in the ABC/USA crime-drama series “Motive,” and plays Kevin O’Brien in the Hallmark Channel original series “Chesapeake Shores.” On the film front, Penny can be seen opposite Ron Perlman and Trace Adkins in The Virginian.

Born in Ottawa, Ontario, Penny obtained his degree in Accounting from Fanshawe College in London, Ontario. Penny knew deep down he was not meant to be an accountant, and at his father’s suggestion decided to give acting a try. He studied at Vancouver’s Lyric School of Acting for two years. In 2003, he booked his first real job, guest-starring on “Jake 2.0” for UPN. Other guest roles followed, including “The L Word” for Showtime, “Kyle XY” for ABC Family, “Smallville” for the WB, and then his first series regular role, on “Whistler” for CTV; the show also aired on The N Channel in the U.S.

Penny landed a series regular role on “The Assistants” for The N Channel, and also appeared in the Lifetime movie, “Held Hostage.” In 2012, he appeared in the Reelz Channel
mini-series “Ring of Fire,” and additional television credits include guest-starring roles in “Blade: The Series,” “Flashpoint,” “The Killing,” “Stargate: Atlantis” and “Supernatural.” He has had supporting roles in a number of feature films, including The A-Team, Tooth Fairy, I Love You, Beth Cooper and John Tucker Must Die.

When not working, Penny loves to surf, go fly fishing, and hang out with this family. He currently lives on Vancouver Island.
