Biography by Nathan Southern

Born in 1972, Canadian actor Colin Ferguson began his career as a member of the improvisational troupe "On the Spot" in his native Montreal and helped found the Second City chapter in Detroit, MI, before making the leap to feature films in the late '90s. Early filmed projects included the features Rowing Through (1996) and Night Sins (1997) and the television miniseries More Tales of the City, as well as prominent roles in the celebrity-themed telemovie biopics Daydream Believers: The Monkees Story (2000) and Inside the Osmonds (2001). Ferguson is best known, however, for his ongoing lead role as Sheriff Jack Carter on the popular Sci-Fi Channel series Eureka (2006). In the years to come, Ferguson would continue to appear on screen, appearing in movies like Life's a Beach.
