Bearing an eerie resemblance to a slightly more stalwart David Duchovney, former model-turned-actor Brendan Fehr has etched out a lucrative film career as a teenage tough guy in such popular high school horror-fests as Disturbing Behavior (1998), Final Destination (2000), and The Forsaken (2001). Also appearing on such small-screen efforts as Millennium and Roswell, Fehr has proven himself able to successfully alternate between television and film while doing his best to avoid being pigeonholed as a teen horror brat packer for the new millennium. Born in New Westminster, British Columbia, Fehr showed an interest in sports early on, and nearly went into a career as an accountant due to his love of mathematics. Relocating to Winnipeg, Manitoba, in 1990, Fehr began to consider a career as a teacher while simultaneously finding work as a model. After approaching an agent while visiting his family in Vancouver in 1997, the handsome young model was convinced that his looks would shine through on camera and soon made his film debut on UPN's Breaker High. Moving on to numerous roles for the Fox Family network and appearing on such television hits as Millennium found Fehr an increasing sought-after up and comer, and it was only a matter of time before he made his film debut in the sci-fi horror hit Disturbing Behavior. Numerous supporting roles followed, and in addition to his work in teen fright flicks, Fehr also appeared in such seldom-seen films as Kill Me Later (2001). Fehr was increasingly busy in the early years of the new millennium, with such films as Long Shot and Paper, Scissors, Stone hinting at a bright future for the developing actor.
