TV eh B Cs podcast – Cliff diving with Benjamin Ayres


Benjamin Ayres is a leading performer in the film and television industry, well known for slipping seamlessly between genres. After two seasons as a series regular on the CTV hit series DAN FOR MAYOR, Ayres nabbed the role of Dr. Zachary Miller in the highly acclaimed CTV original series SAVING HOPE. He also plays Eric Blake on HBO Canada’s Gemini Award-winning series LESS THAN KIND, for which he received a Canadian Screen Award nomination. He also played the chain-smoking sex addict with a morbid death obsession in jPod.

In addition to many film and theatre performances he’s run the gamut of Canadian television over the past five years, including appearances on Rookie Blue, Seed, Bitten, Working the Engels, Lost Girl, InSecurity, Flashpoint, The Vampire Diaries, Psych and the upcoming Schitt’s Creek.

And maybe we talk a little bit about bourbon, tequila and the symbolism of carrying a sick rat through the goalposts of life during a Dave Gilmour guitar solo.
