Born and raised in rural southern Ontario, Greg Hovanessian embodied a strong passion for performance and creativity at a young age. Stemming from an athletic background, Hovanessian found himself involved in numerous organized and extreme sports, recreational gymnastics, parkour and martial arts for which he accumulated several awards and scholarships. Later down the road, his focus shifted into the creative arts, dabbling in a plethora of creative tactile projects, dance, music and song writing. With many self-taught skill sets acquired along the way, Hovanessian felt his versatility would be an asset while pursuing acting full time.
In 2013, Hovanessian landed his first professional acting gig on CW’s hit series “Nikita.” Following that, he continued to assemble credits on various series and feature films, including “Covert Affairs” (USA), “Reign” (The CW), Slasher (Chiller Films), “Mayday” (Discovery Channel), “Private Eyes” (Global) and “UnREAL” (Lifetime). In 2016, Hovanessian landed the lead role in eHero (levelFILM), an eSports coming of age film, starring opposite the renowned Sean Astin (Lord Of The Rings, Goonies, “Stranger Things”).
Since then, Hovanessian has landed series regular roles on “The Mist” (Spike TV) and “Cardinal” (CTV), and a recurring role on the new series “Another Life” (Netflix).
