British born Scott Speedman is best known for his role in TV’s Felicity (1998 to 2002) as Ben Covington and as the off-screen love interest of curly haired co-star actress Keri Russell.
Although Scott and Keri broke up in 2001 and Keri married Shane Deary in 2007 and gave birth to a child, fans still remember the Scott/Keri connection.
Although I didn't scream my baby into this world, the pain continued after he was born for at least three weeks.

To find a new focus outside of athletics, Speedman became interested in acting.
So how does Scott really feel about living in La La Land? He told People that the reason he is still showcasing shaggy longer hair (although still blonde) and a full overgrown beard, which makes him look more like a mountain man that Felicity heartthrob, is because “I thought it (the long hair and beard) worked well for the (Adoration) character since he’s such an isolated and depressed guy.

He went on to attend the University of Toronto and York University to study his craft.
Encouraged by a friend to appear on Speaker's Corner, a viewer open-forum run by Toronto's Citytv, Speedman expressed interest in auditioning for the role of Robin in the film Batman Forever, which was being cast in Toronto at the time.
Everybody kept telling me the pain wasn't going to last forever but after 20 hours of it I left the building.
