Greyston Holt (born September 30, 1985) is a Canadian actor. He is known for his role as Ray Prager Jr in the television series Durham County, as young Emerson Hauser in the Fox series Alcatraz, and as Clayton Danvers in Space series Bitten.
Greyston Stefancsik was born in Calgary, Alberta. He was raised by his parents, Mike and Nancy on Salt Spring Island, BC. His grandparents, Mike and Edith Stefancsik emigrated from Hungary in 1957 to Lethbridge. Greyston's maternal grandmother, Anna Horvath also immigrated from Hungary with her parents in 1927.
During his high school years, he learned to play guitar after which he formed a band and played at various venues. He also took an acting class for the “extra credits” and fell in love with this new avenue of expression.
He moved to Vancouver after high school to pursue an acting career. He was cast in a small role in Killer Bash which was followed by another small role in Steven Spielberg's award winning miniseries, Into the West. After small roles in major television shows like Smallville, Blood Ties and The 4400, he was cast in a recurring role in Durham County for which he was nominated for a "Leo Award" for "Best Supporting Performance by a Male in a Dramatic Series".

In 2011, he was cast as the Young Emerson Hauser in the short-lived FOX series, Alcatraz. His biggest role was being cast in Space fantasy/horror TV series Bitten for which he received another "Leo Award" nomination. The success of the show led to it being acquired by American basic cable channel, Syfy who renewed the show for a second 10-episode season.
