Louis Ferreira is a Portuguese-born Canadian actor best-known for his roles in Stargate Universe as Colonel Everett Young, serial killer Ray Prager in the first season of Durham County, and as FBI Assistant Director, John Pollock, in Missing.

Biography

Ferreira went by the stage name Justin Louis for 25 years until his Portuguese-born mother passed away recently, when he went back to his birth name.

He was born in the Azores Islands, off the coast of Portugal. He immigrated with his parents to Canada early in his life and grew up in North York, Ontario. He began his acting career in Canada and moved from Toronto to Los Angeles in 1995 and then back to Toronto a decade later.

When the Toronto-raised actor kicked off his career in the late '80s, early '90s, Vancouver was a booming destination for film productions so he'd go there whenever work would dry up in Toronto.

Ferreira's resume includes an impressive amount of onscreen work as he has appeared on a broad range of TV series and films, including Durham County, 24, CSI: Miami, Criminal Minds and 1-800-Missing. Science fiction fans may have caught him in guest appearances on The Outer Limit, Mutant X, Highlander and Star Trek: Voyager.

Ferreira won rave reviews for his portrayal of 'The Donald' in Trump Unauthorized and was a lead in the acclaimed miniseries Andromeda Strain. He won the 2008 Gemini Award for Leading Actor for his chilling portrayal of serial killer Ray Prager in Durham County.

Nowadays he plays one of the leading roles, Col. Young, in the TV show Stargate Universe. His involvement has got attached a funny anecdote: Ferreira got himself an audition for the part of Colonel Everett Young in a new Stargate series but he wasn't too sure if it was a role he'd want to take on. He remembered his adolescent dream of owning a boat in Vancouver and put it out there, asking for a sign. Sure enough, days before his test, an old boat attached to a trailer showed up right in front of his house. He then said if the boat would stay there until his audition that would meant he should take part in the show. The boat was in front of his home for a whole month.

Criminal Minds

Ferreira portrayed Roy Colson, a journalist that covered the murders committed by The Reaper, on the Season Four episode Omnivore.
