Colin Ferguson is a Canadian-born actor, director and producer, best known to genre fans for his lead role as Sheriff Jack Carter on the landmark SYFY series “Eureka”.
Due to being born and raised in Montreal, Quebec, he is bilingual — speaking both French and English.
After getting his start on the Nickelodeon series “Are You Afraid of the Dark?”, Ferguson went on to other TV roles including stints on “Titus”, “Becker”, “Malcolm in the Middle” and more. In 2003, he joined the main cast of the NBC series “Coupling” (a reboot of the hit British series), portraying character Patrick Maitland. In 2006, “Eureka” began airing on SYFY, becoming a hit with Ferguson anchoring the series as its lead until its conclusion five seasons later.
Since “Eureka” has ended, Ferguson has lent his improvisational skills and both dramatic and comedic timing to many productions, including American series such as “The Vampire Diaries” and “Haven”, while also recurring on Canadian televisions as well in shows like “Cedar Cove”. Last year, Ferguson began appearing as Mac Sullivan in the Hallmark Channel series of “Fixer Upper” mystery TV-films.
In addition to his television and film roles, Ferguson has been the face of Maytag appliances as “The Maytag Man” since 2014, appearing in both print ads and television commercials for the company.
