Jeremy Raymond is a rare talent with a unique character. A professional film and TV actor and musician, he brings an array of talents to every performance.
Born and raised in Cranbrook BC. Jeremy started his career in theater at a very young age. Throughout high school he performed in plays, musicals, street theatre, improv shows, and even a vaudeville act. After high school he moved to Edmonton, where he studied music at Grant MacEwan College and majored in Vocal Performance.
Jeremy sang with a variety of bands during this time from small jazz combos to rhythm and blues showbands. Feeling a strong pull toward film, Jeremy changed his focus shortly after college. While still in Edmonton he appeared in a number of indie features that he admits consisted of “bad dialogue, and buckets of fake blood”. With Jeremy’s rare looks and undeniable talent it wasn’t long before he began booking more substantial roles. His first foray into the world of feature film was with the Showtime movie The Incredible Mrs. Ritchie, opposite Gena Rowlands and Kevin Zegers. He played one of Mrs. Ritchie’s handicapped sons, Stanley Ritchie and the role earned him a Gemini nomination for Best Supporting Actor in a Dramatic Program or mini-series.
Riding high on success Jeremy moved to Vancouver and began working steadily. He appeared in SyFy’s Alice, HUB’s R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour and the ABC Family series Kyle XY where he was challenged to play the role of a mental patient with autism. Jeremy appeared in the films A Problem with Fear, Growing Up Julianne and the indie film Karma Inc. before meeting with JJ Abrams in 2012. Having seen some of his previous work JJ Abrams brought Jeremy in for a meeting which resulted in Jeremy being offered a featured role in the Star Trek sequel Star Trek Into Darkness.
Jeremy has also continued his love affair with music and has been working for the last several years as a singer/songwriter. He is currently recording an album of original music.
