Many male actors get stuck playing a variation of the same role over and over again. Those options frequently range from the dependable best friend and the jock, to the action hero and the funny slacker or the jerk. Ryan Kennedy has managed to avoid that pitfall. The Canadian native broke into the business as "Med Student" in More Than Meets the Eye: The Joan Brock Story. Since then, he's racked up 45 other credits including guest shots on Blade: The Series, Smallville, Flashpoint, V, Caprica, Mistresses, and Motive. He's enjoyed recurring roles on Defiance, Hellcats, and Whistler.
CTV's procedural drama, Motive, experienced a changing of the guard in season four.

He's been missing in action lately, but Mitch Kennecki returns in a major way in August 23's "Chronology of Pain" and for the series finale, "We'll Always Have Homicide", on August 30.
