Twenty-one year old Brendan Meyer is already an accomplished actor. While putting several years of training under his belt, he has also been working steadily in the entertainment business for over ten years. Best known for his love and extensive knowledge of live theatre, film, and TV, Brendan is a well respected contributor to the acting community. His impeccable comedic timing, paired with his love and talent for dramatic roles, position him to become an undeniable force in the film and television industry in the years to come. Recently, he just received his second Canadian Screen Award nomination for his performance in CTV’s Motive!

Brendan can’t wait for you to see his new shows: Maker Studios & James Franco’s series CAMP and Awesomness TV’s T@gged! Stay tuned here or on Brendan’s social media sites for information coming soon!

Last year,  Brendan demonstrated his dramatic chops playing opposite Ted Danson as Mark Powell in CBS’ CSI: The Fallen, Myles in  CW’s The 100, and returned to his comedic roots as Colton in the Fox/WB Comedy Pilot No Place Like Home from Ricky Blitt and Johnny Galecki (Big Bang Theory) opposite Jane Kazmarek (Malcolm in the Middle), Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite), and David James Elliott (Jag).

Brendan has filmed all over North America: in LA, New Mexico, Toronto, and Vancouver, as well as his home town of Edmonton. After wrapping his highly successful eighty episode run in the titular role of Adam Young on the international hit series Mr. Young in 2014, Meyer has been working non stop! His  many TV credits include, Hallmark’s Cedar Cove, Garage Sale Mystery, and The Christmas Ornament, Teen Nick/YTV’s Life With Boys, each season of R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour, Dinosapien and, of course, his lead role as Henry in the Disney Channel Original Movie Girl VS Monster opposite Olivia Holt (I Didn’t Do It). Meyer still feels one of his career highlights was when he visited to Sundance to promote his feature film, The Guest, where he played opposite Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey) and Maika Monroe (Independence Day).  To cap that year off, his own directorial debut A Job premiered at the Montreal World film festival last summer! Stay tuned here on where we will be posting the short film for you all to see!

Brendan completed three seasons with the Freewill Shakespeare Festival in Edmonton. His past theatre credits include Macbeth, Much Ado About Nothing, Titus Andronicus, Comedy of Errors and Richard III (Freewill Players); and Beneath The Ice (Fringe Theatre Adventures). He also has numerous directing (Fourteen, The Tempest) and acting (The Haunting of Hathaway House, The Tempest, Twelfth Night and An Unnatural Turn) credits with Celsius Youth Theatre, where he is the co-founder and was the co-artistic director. 

Brendan is a self-professed Shakespeare nerd, who writes his own Shakespeare adaptations and screenplays in his free time. He is very passionate about movies and theatre and can spend hours talking about them! He has travelled the world with his family, seen many great plays and musicals, and maintains an extensive library of plays and books on the industry.  He is currently holding table reads of awesome plays with his fellow acting buddies!

Brendan is very committed to giving back. He has strong ties with Vancouver based Project Limelight, an inner city youth theatre program in Vancouver, and India’s One! International, an organization running schools for disadvantaged youth.  He has several screenplays in development, and writes his own Shakespeare adaptations.  When he has free time, you can find him in front of a movie screen, studying the greats such as Humphrey Bogart, Leonardo DiCaprio and anything by Woody Allen. 

Brendan is currently located in LA but often returns to Canada for work and play.
