Brendan Jacob Joel Fehr (born October 29, 1977) is a Canadian film and television actor, perhaps best known for portraying Michael Guerin in the WB television series Roswell, Jared Booth in Bones, and for portraying Laboratory Tech Dan Cooper in CSI: Miami. In 2008, Fehr won a Gemini Award for "Hottest Canadian Male TV Star". Brendan is currently now working on his role as Dr. Drew Alister on the NBC drama The Night Shift.

Early life[edit]

Fehr was born in New Westminster, British Columbia, to a mother who worked as a correctional case manager and a father who was a yacht manufacturer.[1][2] He moved to Winnipeg, Manitoba in 1990, and was raised a strict Mennonite.[3] He graduated in 1995 from Mennonite Brethren Collegiate Institute.

Career[edit]

Fehr has modeled for Levi's, Calvin Klein, Emporio Armani, DKNY Jeans and his pictures appeared in magazines. In 1996 he was cast in an early Internet soap opera, CR6. He broke into television in 1997 when he was cast in Breaker High. He enjoyed a regular role on the Sci-Fi TV series Roswell from 1999 to 2002. In 2001, Fehr starred in the U2 video "Stuck in a Moment You Can't Get Out Of". He plays a rookie football player named Paul Hewson (Bono's real name), who blows what would have been the game winning kick in an American football game as the ball hit the goal post. He appeared in Vanessa Carlton's video "Pretty Baby".

Since 2008, he has starred as Jake Stanton in the ABC mini-series Samurai Girl, and he has had a recurring role as the character Jared Booth on Bones. Fehr recently played a businessman in A Christmas Kiss and the navigator of a U.S. warship in the movie X-Men First Class.

In 2014, Brendan began playing the role of Dr. Drew Alister, an Army vet and surgeon at a San Antonio hospital, in the NBC drama The Night Shift. The show was renewed for a second season, which will take place in 2015.[4]

Personal life[edit]

Fehr lives in Los Angeles, California with his wife, Jennifer Rowley, whom he married in July 2006. The couple have three daughters.[5]
