David Hewlett is an English-Canadian actor best known for his role as Dr. Meredith Rodney McKay on the science fiction television shows Stargate SG1, Stargate Atlantis and Stargate Universe, and his role as David Worth in Cube.
Hewlett got his first computer in his mid-teens and became a self-described "computer nerd". While attending high school in Toronto he launched his acting career, starring in student films by Vincenzo Natali. He dropped out of high school in his senior year to pursue careers in acting and computing.
In 2007, David appeared as a guest star in the first episode of the TV series Sanctuary, a show produced by and starring Stargate actress Amanda Tapping. He played Larry Tolson – a patient suffering from a form of psychosis, who was shot and wounded before being taken into custody by police as a murder suspect. There are no plans for him to reprise this role.
