A handsome, brown-haired Canadian actor, Scott Vickaryous has racked up several television credits, with featured parts in TV-movies and regular series roles since his wise move west to production friendly Vancouver. Born in British Columbia and raised in Alberta, he moved to Toronto after high school where he worked as a model. After relocating to Vancouver, Vickaryous landed a bit part as a diver in the USA biopic "Breaking the Surface: The Greg Louganis Story" and was featured in the Showtime original children's film "The Right Connections" (both 1997), with Melissa Joan Hart, before landing his debut series regular role on "Breaker High". Set on a luxury ocean liner that served as a traveling boarding school for several hundred students, this 1997 UPN teen drama won Vickaryous a loyal audience, but suffered an early demise. The Vancouver-based production certainly had a great deal of young fans, and lived on successfully in reruns on Canada's YTV. Vickaryous emerged as a particular favorite among viewers for his portrayal of bad boy Max Ballard, a surfer with attitude, reigned in somewhat by the presence of his father, the ship's captain. He followed up with two of NBC's dramatic 1998 "Moment of Truth" movies, taking a supporting role in "Race Against Fear" with Ariana Richards as a high school athlete raped by her coach, and starring in "A Champion's Fight" as a teenaged sports hero stricken with terminal cancer. In 1999, he was featured in ABC's fact-based TV-movie "Our Guys: Outrage in Glen Ridge", playing Paul Archer, one of a group of popular and out of control athletes accused of raping a mentally challenged teenaged girl. As Paul, one of the least brutal of the boys, and the one that the young victim had a crush on, Vickaryous capably evinced the character's conflict and cowardice in a nuanced performance, given very little expository dialogue. Later that year, Vickaryous was cast in the pilot of the series "Safe Harbor", playing the son of a widowed Florida sheriff (Gregory Harrison). The actor was replaced in the role before the show debuted on The WB. He began a recurring role on the Fox comedy/drama "Get Real" later that season.
