Benjamin Ayres


B: January 19, 1977 in Kamloops, British Columbia

After two seasons as a series regular on the CTV hit series Dan For Mayor, Benjamin Ayres landed the role of Dr. Zachary Miller in the highly acclaimed CTV/NBC original series Saving Hope. During his early twenties, he studied at The Lyric School of Acting under the direct mentorship of studio head Michele Lonsdale Smith. He later collaborated with her as a performer in a wide range of theatrical productions; including multiple mountings of Eric Bogosian’s one man play Sex, Drugs, Rock & Roll, Judith Thompson’s Lion in the Streets and August Strindberg’s Miss Julie. Possibly still best known for his role as Cancer Cowboy, the chain-smoking sex addict with a morbid death obsession, in the critically acclaimed cult hit CBC series jPod, based on the Douglas Coupland novel of the same name, the role brought a Leo nomination in 2008.
