Fred Ewanuick is one of Vancouver's busiest actors.
He's not sure how it all got that way though.
Growing up in Port Moody, the bingo hall was his domain. There he served nachos and orange pop to hungry bingo ladies until high school graduation in 1989.
Fred then moved on to college, where the only courses available to him were English, Women's Studies and Theatre.
He failed all three, but something in the theatre class grabbed his attention.
After auditioning and being accepted into the two-year theater intensive, it took a full year before the head of that program asked Fred to leave.
The hunger to perform could not be stopped.
He began to train with acting coach Shea Hampton, and over a period of three years began work in both film and television and has not looked back since.
Fred's credits include guest star roles on Robson Arms, Dark Angel and DaVinci's Inquest and roles in Hollywood films like A Guy Thing, The Santa Clause II, and Just Friends.
Fred had the starring role in the comedic feature The Delicate Art of Parking that premiered at the Montreal World Film Festival and the film won the "Best Canadian Feature" prize.
He can be seen in the upcoming Canadian films: Young Triffie's Been Made Away With, Black Eyed Dog and Love and Other Dilemmas.
Fred's character "Hank" is not dumb by any means, just a little different.
A guy who thinks Pilates has something to do with the guy who killed Jesus, and suspects every big city person has an ulterior motive, "Hank" is not wrong all the time.
He's "Brent Leroy's" best bud, and somewhat of a ladies man, in his own mind.
