A gifted actor, Canadian-born Gregory Smith grew up in front of the camera, with starring roles in kid-powered projects such as "Harriet the Spy" (1996), "Small Soldiers" (1998) and "Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century" (Disney Channel, 1999). He played one of Richard Dreyfuss' sons in "Krippendorf's Tribe" (1998) and one of Mel Gibson's brood in "The Patriot" (2000), but achieved full-fledged stardom as the angsty, angry Ephram Brown whose father (Treat Williams) moves the whole family from Manhattan to small-town Colorado on the acclaimed drama "Everwood" (The WB, 2002-06). Smith's charismatic performance as Ephram proved iconic to a certain generation of viewers, and the actor won a Young Artist Award as well as five Teen Choice Award nominations. After the series ended, Smith appeared in such eclectic films as "Hobo with a Shotgun" (2011) and the Daniel Craig mystery "Dream House" (2011), but scored another long-running TV gig as Dov Epstein, a sensitive, ambitious police academy grad on the Canadian cop drama "Rookie Blue" (Global, 2010- ). After an impressive run as a heavily in demand child star, Gregory Smith impressed fans and critics alike with how gracefully he grew into a gifted adult actor.
