R. J. Fetherstonhaugh is a Canadian actor. He is known for his portrayal of Nolan Gallard in 21 Thunder.[1]

Early years[edit]

Fetherstonhaugh was born in Victoria, British Columbia and spent his childhood focused on athletics; he spent three years training in boxing in high school before deciding to pursue acting.[2] He graduated from the Vancouver Film School in 2013.[3]

In an interview, he credited his mother for pushing him towards acting:

"My parents and I had a talk about my future, they were concerned about the physical trauma that comes with contact sports. I never saw boxing as a career path and frankly at that point in my life I didn't see any career path. My mother suggested I try acting and I fell in love with it. I've always been a bit of a storyteller so this line of work felt right."[4]

Acting career[edit]

His first acting credits came in short films Mob Kingdom and Flying Embri in 2014.[5][6] Later that year, he appeared in Supernatural episode Stairway to Heaven as Colonel Scoop's Employee.[7] He featured in two episodes of When The Heart Calls in 2015 and earned a six-episode role as Sean in Wayward Pines a year later.[8][9][10]

Fetherstonhaugh's first full-length movie appearance came as Justin Abraham in Kevan Funk's Hello Destroyer – which premiered at 2016 Toronto International Film Festival.[11][12][13] He next appeared in television film Revenge Porn, as well as the series Dead of Summer.[14][15][16]

In 2017, Fetherstonhaugh appeared in one episode of Somewhere Between as Blake Tanner before landing a leading role in 21 Thunder as Nolan Gallard.[17][18][19] In 2018, he played featured roles in the films The Predator and How It Ends.[20][21]
