Colin Ferguson (born July 22, 1972) is a Canadian-born American actor, director and producer. He is known for playing Sheriff Jack Carter on Syfy's Eureka, Lewis on Then Came You, and the role of the latest Maytag Repairman. He starred in 2013 in Haven and in 2014 in The Vampire Diaries.
He was born and raised in Montreal, Quebec, and is a graduate of Appleby College and McGill University. Since he was born and raised around Montreal, which predominantly speaks French, he is bilingual speaking both French and English. Although he was born in Canada, he became a naturalized citizen of the United States.
Ferguson was a member of the Montreal improv group On the Spot. He has been cast in many television series, television movies, and films, ranging from The Opposite of Sex to The Stupidest Angel. He was the lead for Eureka, a Syfy original series broadcast between 2006 and 2012. He was also a guest presenter for sci-fi news show HypaSpace.
On September 5, 2011, he appeared on the podcast Disasterpiece Theatre to discuss what Eureka might have looked like if it had been directed by Michael Bay. In January 2014, Ferguson became the newest "Maytag Repairman".
In July 2015, Ferguson began playing a recurring role in season three of the Hallmark Channel series Cedar Cove, as the new district attorney and a rival to Jack. “He hasn't been terribly honest. Is it a good time to point out that maybe there's another path she could take? Or, maybe I should step back?”
