Lucas Bryant has made a name for himself in both Canada and the United States. Born and raised in Elmira, Ontario, Bryant studied theatre and drama at Sheridan College.
He starred on Syfy’s popular mystery series “Haven,” based on the novella The Colorado Kid, by author Stephen King, which ran for five seasons. In the series, he played 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.
During his hiatuses, Bryant worked with director Mika Kaurismäki on festival darling, The Girl King, staring Sarah Gadon and Michael Nyqvis and made guest star appearances on The CW’s popular series “Beauty and the Beast,” CBS’ legendary series “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” and the CBC series “Cracked.”
Next to “Haven,” Bryant is most often recognized for his role in film The Vow, starring Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum but has numerous television credits to his name, including such series as “Queer as Folk” for Showtime; “M.V.P.” for Soapnet and CBC; “Sex, Love & Secrets” for UPN and CTV’s “The Eleventh Hour.” Bryant also starred in the Lifetime television movies “More Sex & the Single Mom” and “A Very Merry Daughter Of The Bride” and starred in the lead role of Ken Read in the television movie “Crazy Canucks,” inspired by the true story of the World Cup Downhill Circuit during the 1974-1976 seasons. He also had a lead role in “Playing House,” based on Canadian author Patricia Pearson’s best-selling novel.
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 also flexed his funny bone and joined forces with a group of friends to form the Skarsgard Players theatre company, named in honor of veteran Swedish actor Stellan Skarsgard, and launched an all-male production of Are You There God? It’s Me Margaret, based on the Judy Blume novel.
Additional credits include “Merry In-Laws,” directed by Leslie Hope and later guest starred in her episode of the popular CBC period series “Frankie Drake.” Bryant also recurred on the comedy procedural, “Private Eyes,” starring Jason Priestly; and starred in the television movies “Secret Summer,” “Summer Inter” and the Hallmark Channel original movie “Tulips in Spring.”
After “Haven,” Bryant went on to lead a talented cast in the critically acclaimed CBC/WGN series from Jennifer Holness and Sudz Sutherland, “Shoot the Messenger.” He then recurred on ABC’s fan-favorite “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” He has also made a name for himself as a talented actor, singer and musician in his lead roles in the Hallmark Channel original movie “Country at Heart” and the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries originals “Time for You to Come Home for Christmas,” “The Angel Tree” and, most recently, “Five More Minutes: Moments Like These,” which premiered last year during the network’s annual Miracles of Christmas programming event.
Bryant was seen in the comedy feature, 7 Days to Vegas, starring alongside Jennifer Tilly, for director Eric Balfour and as the lead in the timely and thought-provoking short film Unforgettable Moment for French director François Roux.
