From US: March, 2000

BRENDAN FEHR: The Canadian Heartthrob from the WB’s Roswell Says He Feels Like an Alien in Hollywood
by Nerina Rammairone

Age: 22

Hometown: Winnipeg, Manitoba, where he and his two older sisters were raised by their mom, a case manager at a correctional facility. (His parents divorced when he was 6, but he remains close to his dad, a yacht manufacturer)

Current residence: A rented Los Angeles house that he shares with his Rottweiler, Opa (grandpa in German)

Alien resurrection: He plays one of three extra-terrestrials living in Roswell, N.M., site of the fabled 1947 UFO crash, on the WB’s sci-fi hit Roswell. This month, he also co-stars in the thriller Final Destination.

Numbers game: After graduating from high school in 1995, Fehr took a few years off and began modeling part-time in order to save money for college, where he planned to be a math major. “I like math,” he says, “because there’s only one right answer.”

Camera-ready: In 1997, eight days before Fehr was to start at the University of Manitoba, a talent scout discovered him at a modeling agency. He immediately landed a small role on the Canadian teen show Breaker High and put off plans for college.

The truth is out there: “Lots of people say I look like David Duchovny, but I’m not gonna freak out over it.”

Ex-files: Fehr just came out of a one-year relationship with a girl from back home but says he’s open to meeting someone new. “She doesn’t have to be a blonde or brunette, or tall or short. But it’s important that she share the same religious values as me.” (Fehr is a Mennonite.)

Slap shot: “I went to a hockey game (in L.A,), and the fans were so polite. The slightest hit and they’re yelling at the ref to call a penalty. It’s the Canadian in me � I don’t mind playing a little dirty.”

Photo Caption: My favorite martian: “I’m getting a lot more older people than I expected saying ‘I enjoy the show,'” says Fehr.
