When it came to choosing roles, Neil Grayston often eschewed clichéd nice guy types; instead gravitating towards characters that audiences found hard to love. He launched his acting career in Canada with a series of guest stints on hit dramas such as the critically acclaimed "Edgemont" (CBC, 2000-05) and "Da Vinci's Inquest" (CBC, 1998-2005), on which he portrayed a psychopath. Grayston juggled his time between projects in Canada and in the U.S., receiving praise for his performance on comedies like "Wonderfalls" (Fox, 2004), where he portrayed a demanding gift shop boss, and "Godiva's" (Bravo/Citytv, 2005-06), where he played an asexual sous chef. Grayston's popularity soared after he scored a dual-role on the cult sci-fi series "Eureka" (Sci-Fi Channel, 2006- ), as the voice of an artificial intelligence as well as a brilliant yet socially inept scientist. His role on the show was not only a hit among science fiction fans, it also helped bring Grayston to Hollywood's attention as one of its most talented up-and-coming stars.
