Kris Holden-Ried trained as an actor with Uta Hagen’s Master Class Scene Study and Janine Manatis of The Actor’s Studio before going on to amass an impressive résumé of work on the big and small screens. In addition to playing the cool shape-shifting Fae and detective, Dyson on Showcase’s drama series Lost Girl, Holden-Ried’s most memorable lead roles include Giles in A Touch of Pink and Jack in A Stone's Throw. He also appeared in Gossip with Kate Hudson, K-19: The Widow Maker, and Waking Up Wally: The Walter Gretzky Story as Wayne Gretzky. Other films he acted in include Emotional Arithmetic starring Susan Sarandon and Gabriel Byrne; Never Forget, a mystery thriller featuring Lou Diamond-Phillips, A Broken Life, a drama with Tom Sizemore; Public Domain; Niagara Motel; Going To Kansas City; and Textuality. Most recently, Holden-Ried starred alongside Kate Beckinsale in the big-screen blockbuster Underworld 4 and can be seen in the upcoming feature films Three Days in Havana, Sex After Kids, and The Returned.

Holden-Ried also features prominently on television in the historical drama The Tudorsas as Sir William Compton and also in Ben Hur, a major co-production by BBC, CBC, and ABC. Holden-Ried gained attention for playing bassist Noel Redding in Hendrix (Showtime’s biopic on Jimi Hendrix). He also appeared on the gritty Street Time on Showtime and in the TV movies Icebound starring Susan Sarandon, Shaftesbury’s Hemingway vs. Callaghan, A Killing Spring, and The Many Trials of One Jane Doe.

He is also an accomplished athlete. As a World Cup equestrian, fencer and swimmer, Holden-Ried earned himself a spot on the Canadian National Pentathlon Team and was a Silver Medalist at both the Pan-Am and Pan-Pacific Championships.

Holden-Ried is looking forward to reprising his role as Dyson for Lost Girl’s highly anticipated fifth and final season.
