Shore Leave 35 Guest: Neil Grayston
Born and raised in suburban Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, Neil Grayston caught the acting bug while participating in his high school drama club’s performance of Hamlet, where he played the titular Danish Prince. Following graduation, Neil had a number of guest star and leading roles in Canadian television, including the critically acclaimed CBC young adult series Edgemont.
Neil’s credits include: a series regular role as “Alec,” the mouth-breather, on FOX’s critically acclaimed dramedy Wonderfalls and his Leo Award nominated performance for his portrayal of “Martin,” the stoic sous-chef in CTV’s dramedy Godiva’s. Selected guest star roles include: The CW’s Smallville and Supernatural, as well as CBS’ The Dead Zone.
American audiences best know Neil Grayston for his leading role as “Douglas Fargo” for five seasons on the hit series, Eureka. Eureka is the second highest rated show on the SyFy Channel and was nominated by TV Guide for the “Fan Favorite Award.” Neil’s character, “Douglas Fargo” appeared in a crossover arc on SyFy’s #1 show, Warehouse 13.
