Colin Lawrence was born to Jamaican parents in London, England and raised in the suburbs of Vancouver, BC, Canada. He first signed on with a talent agent in hopes of fulfilling his modeling dreams, but when his agent approached him with the opportunity to audition for a movie, he went to the casting session and wound up landing the co-starring role of "Tommy T" in Slam Dunk Ernest opposite Jim Varney. He went on to land the recurring role of "Major Warren" on the popular sci-fi series Stargate SG-1, and had the opportunity to work with former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger in The 6th Day. Other notable feature film appearances include X-Men 2, Fantastic Four and Watchmen.
Lawrence has recurred in numerous hit series including Showtime's Emmy-nominated series The L Word and the critically-acclaimed, Emmy award-winning series Battlestar Galactica. He has also guest-starred in many television series including The 4400, Blade: The Series, Supernatural and Smallville.
In his spare time, Lawrence can be found in the kitchen or at his barbeque cooking up his favorite meals and entertaining family and friends.
