Brendan Penny was born on November 9, 1978, which makes him 43 years old as of 2022.
Brendan Penny was born on November 9, 1978, in Ottawa, Canada. He has not disclosed much about his family to the public, though it is known that they have a French-Canadian background. His parents parted ways quite early in his life, so he grew up splitting his time between them in two towns—Ottawa and London, Ontario. He has two siblings, a sister and a brother.
Brendan Penny graduated from Fanshawe College in London, Ontario, with a Bachelor of Science in Accounting. However, his true passion lay in acting, and he moved to Vancouver, British Columbia to pursue his dream after leaving Fanshawe College.
After graduating from college, he attended the Lyric School of Acting in 2002. His hard work paid off, and he soon received his first small acting role in 2003, in an episode of 'Jake 2.0'.
The Canadian actor is extremely private about his personal life. However, he has shared that he is married to a woman named Lisa Gerrard, whom he married in 2010. The couple has two children together, a son and a daughter. Brendan does not share much about his family online, hence much of his family life still remains shrouded in mystery.
After passing out from the Lyric School of Acting, Brendan Penny began to put his efforts into acting full-time. It wasn't easy in the beginning, and he mostly only got smaller roles in television series, many of them being minor or non-speaking parts.
He gradually began getting larger roles and even had parts in the hit shows 'Supernatural' and 'Smallville'. He got his first big break in 2006 when he landed a leading role as A.J. Varland in the Canadian teen drama series 'Whistler'.
Most of his roles have been in Hallmark Channel TV movies, including 'Easter Under Wraps', 'A Little Christmas Charm', 'Beverly Hills Wedding', 'A Dash of Love', and 'Magical Christmas Ornaments' and more. His forte seems to be holiday movies, especially those related to Christmas, and he has starred in a number of them to date. He also played a supporting role in the 2009 movie 'Poison Ivy: The Secret Society', which also starred Ryan Kennedy, Shawna Waldron, and Miriam McDonald.
One of his other major roles was as Detective Brian Lucas in the Canadian police crime drama series, 'Motive'. The series ran from 2013-2016. He has also appeared in 'John Tucker Must Die', the comedy movie 'I Love You, Beth Cooper' (which was directed by the famous director Chris Columbus, who also directed some of the Harry Potter movies), and 'Held Hostage'. He also has a major starring role in the television series 'Chesapeake Shores', which started airing in 2016 and is ongoing. He plays the role of Kevin O'Brien, a former US Army medic.
His latest roles were in 'Beverly Hills Wedding' and 'Time for Them to Come Home for Christmas', both Hallmark TV movies released in 2021. He also appeared in the rebooted version of the popular '90s show 'Beverly Hills 90210'- 'BH90210' as Wyatt Jackson in a recurring role.
Brendan Penny has been nominated for a number of Leo Awards for his roles, but unfortunately has not won any awards to date. The Leo Awards recognize exceptional work in the film and television industry of British Columbia, Canada, and are held in Vancouver every year.
So far, Brendan Penny has been nominated for a Leo Award for Best Lead Performance by a Male in a Dramatic Series for 'Whistler' in 2007, Best Supporting Performance by a Male in a Dramatic Series for 'Motive' in 2014, 2015, and 2017, and Best Lead Performance By A Male in a Television Movie for 'A Little Christmas Charm' in 2021.
Brendan Penny has shared that he is extremely fond of nature, and loves doing adventurous activities that take him far from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and the stress that comes from pursuing an acting career. He also loves attending surfing competitions and cheering on one of his dear friends, who is a professional surfer. Despite his extremely fit physique and grueling workout routine, he has admitted that his favorite food is pizza- with mushrooms and peppers.
He loves fishing, swimming, trekking, and taking nature walks. He also prefers going to the gym and keeping himself fit, which comes as no surprise as a job like acting does require one to keep up appearances.
Brendan Penny is also very fond of animals and has a pet dog and a cat at home, whose antics he posts regularly on his social media.
