Lucas Bryant : Tom Novak

Lucas Bryant has made a name for himself in both Canada and the U.S. Born and raised in Elmira, Ontario, Bryant studied theatre and drama at Sheridan College in Oakville.

He recently starred on Syfy’s popular mystery series “Haven,” based on the novella The Colorado Kid by author Stephen King. It just wrapped its fifth and final season. In “Haven,” Bryant plays ‘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.” Bryant also starred in Lifetime’s “More Sex & The Single Mom” and “A Very Merry Daughter of the Bride,” and played the lead role of ‘Ken Read’ in the MOW “Crazy Canucks,” inspired by the true story of the World Cup Downhill Circuit during the 1974-1976 seasons.

He had a lead role in the MOW “Playing House,” based on Canadian author Patricia Pearson’s best- selling novel of the same name. Later, he appeared in the film “The Vow,” starring Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum, and completed shooting a movie for television called “Merry In- Laws,” directed by Leslie Hope.

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 productions of Are You There God? It’s Me Margaret, based on the Judy Blume novel.

During his hiatus last year, Lucas worked with director Mika Kaurismaki on festival darling, “The Girl King,” starring Sarah Gadon and Michael Nyqvist and made guest star appearances on the “Popular” CW show “Beauty & The Beast,” CBS’s legendary series “CSI,” and the CBC series “Cracked.” This past year, Bryant starred in the MOW “Secret Summer” and the Hallmark Channel hit “Tulips in Spring.” This fall, he will be starring in the highly anticipated CBC series from Jennifer Holness and Sudz Sutherland, “Shoot the Messenger.” He is currently filming the Hallmark Channel original movie, “Summer Love,” in Vancouver, BC.
