Description   [from Freebase]

Dmitry Chepovetsky (born 1970) is a Gemini Award nominated Canadian-Ukrainian actor, best known for his role of Bob Melnikov in the TV series ReGenesis. Chepovetsky was born in Lviv, U.S.S.R., now Ukraine. His family left in 1976 along with waves of other Jewish emigrants bound for Israel. Along the way, his family experienced an eight-month stopover in Italy while awaiting their travel visas. They then decided to change course for Regina, where his uncle lived. Since then, Chepovetsky has been splitting his time between Vancouver and Toronto, where he’s been living for the past eight years, close to his older brother and nieces. He enjoys photography, music, movies, theatre and writing. Chepovetsky acted in his first musical at the age of 14 while in high school in Regina, then began acting in local community. Thinking briefly about a different career path, he was accepted to the University of Toronto on a scholarship for its commerce program. But after three weeks he dropped out to work as an elf at Casa Loma and then worked numerous jobs until he got to Ryerson Theatre School.
