TV Series Actor – Scott Speedman

This green-eyed, blond hunk is best known for his role as Ben Covington on the TV series Felicity. Born in London, England and raised in Toronto, Scott Speedman was born to a department store buyer father and an elementary school teacher mother and evolved into a championship swimmer.

At ages 12 and 14, Speedman was a part of the relay swim team that held the Canadian national record for the 400-meter medley. Until a neck injury forced a career change, he was even a member of the Canadian national team.

He turned to acting when a high school girlfriend dared him to go on Speaker’s Corner and declare his interest in playing the role of Boy Wonder in Batman Forever, which was casting in Toronto at the time. While he didn’t get the part, the casting director put him in touch with an agent.

That, in turn, led to roles in the TV series Nancy Drew and the television film Net Worth. He also started attending classes at New York’s Neighborhood Playhouse theater school, but dropped out and ended up crashing on his mother’s Toronto couch. He then hooked up with David Rotenberg, a novelist and former Broadway director, and started studying at Toronto’s Equity Showcase Theatre.

That commitment led Speedman to a role in the short film Can I Get a Witness, developed at the Norman Jewison Film Center in Toronto, which was screened at the 1996 Toronto International Film Festival. And ultimately, in a fortuitous twist of fate, Speedman landed the coveted role of “the sensitive jock” on Felicity.
