Ben Cotton was born on July 26, 1975 in Edmonton, Alberta and moved to Kelowna at a young age. During his high school years, his sister began persuading him to go into drama acting, to which he did not agree to until being convinced by a teacher to try out in a theater school based in New York. Though he has a deep love for stage performance, later on, Ben came to Vancouver in 1997 to actively pursue the opportunities of television and movie roles. While attending acting classes, he juggled a night time restaurant job that was open twenty-hours a day. Through a gradual process of three years, Ben gave up his former job for full-time acting with paid and unpaid performance roles.
He is best known for his roles of prickly scientist Dr. Kavanagh on the sci-fi series Stargate Atlantis, as Travis Guthrie on The CW's cheerleading drama Hellcats and his portrayal of Pastor Mike on AMC's mystery-crime drama The Killing.
