SCOTT SPEEDMAN (Bobby Keough) made his American television debut as Ben Covington in the popular WB drama
Felicity. Felicity recently had its series finale after a successful four season run on the WB. Speedman recently finished production on two films: the independent film
My Life Without Me opposite Sarah Polley and Mark Ruffalo, and Lakeshore Entertainment's
Underworld opposite Kate Beckinsale. Other film credits include the feature
Duets, directed by Bruce Paltrow and co-starring Gwyneth Paltrow, and The Kitchen
Party, directed by Gary Burns.
Speedman's first film was the short feature Can I Get a Witness. The film was developed at the Norman Jewison Film Center in Toronto and was screened at the 1996 Toronto International Film Festival. Soon after, he landed the lead role in the Canadian feature
The Kitchen Party. Speedman then began studying at the Neighborhood Playhouse in New York before landing the role on
Felicity. Speedman made his stage debut during his summer 2000 hiatus performing the lead in the Edward Albee play
The Zoo Story at the Equity Theater in Toronto.
Born in London, England, and raised in Toronto, Speedman spent most of his youth immersed in athletics, following in the footsteps of his mother who held a world record in running. At ages 12 and 14, Speedman was a part of the relay swim team that held the national record for the 400-meter medley. In 1992 as a member of the Canadian Junior National Swim Team, Speedman performed well at the Olympic trials, but suffered a neck injury soon after and was forced to leave the sport.
When not working, Speedman enjoys hiking, camping, reading, and playing basketball. He currently divides his time between Los Angeles and Toronto.
