Originally from Calgary, Alberta, Canada, Brennan Elliott landed his first acting gig in 1996 with a recurring role on the hit Canadian series “Madison.” Two years later, with half a dozen guest leads in both television and movies on his resume, Elliott was destined for Los Angeles. Upon his arrival, he met with a major Hollywood studio executive who was so impressed after an audition that he convinced the studio brass to give Elliott a one-year holding deal. After testing for many pilots, he finally landed a series regular role on Lifetime’s “Strong Medicine,” beginning his career.
Elliott has been regarded as an established professional working actor for more than 15 years. Having studied in Canada and New York, he has found a home for the last 12 years studying at the prestigious Eric Morris Studio. Known to many as one of the hottest up and coming talents, he has shown his incredible versatility and received rave reviews on recurring roles such as “Cold Case,” “The 4400,” “What About Brian,” “Blind Justice” and “CSI.” He shined in guest-star roles on several hit series, such as “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Desperate Housewives,” “Ghost Whisperer,” “Bones,” “House,” “Knight Rider,” “Without a Trace,” “Eyes,” “Monk,” “North Shore,” “NCIS,” “Flashpoint,” “Rizzoli & Isles” and “Hawaii 5-0,” among countless others.
Elliott just completed “Curse of Chucky,” the next installment in the famed horror franchise, as the male lead. He also recently starred in the action-horror-comedy “Blood Shot,” a full-length feature film version of the critically acclaimed and award-winning short film of the same name, and received rave reviews for his portrayal of Todd Beamer in the Emmy® Award winning A&E TV movie, “Flight 93” and Hallmark Channel’s “The Nanny Express,” with Vanessa Marcil.
Coming to Los Angeles with just a few credits and now amassing over 160, Elliott’s extensive training includes some of the most recognizable and prestigious places in the country such as the Actor’s Studio, the Neighborhood Playhouse, Juilliard, Leslie Kahn, Susan Batson, Studio 58 and the Eric Morris Studio.
