Teddy Wilson began his career in the entertainment industry as a child actor on the internationally syndicated series YOU CAN’T DO THAT ON TELEVISION. After earning an Honours B.A. in Political Science, Wilson moved to Toronto to work at the Ontario Legislature. Political advisor by day, he started producing live comedy revues at night, including the prestigious Tim Sims Encouragement Award show at The Second City.
After leaving politics Wilson worked as a Talent Booker for The Comedy Network series POPCULTURED WITH ELVIRA KURT, and in 2005 he joined MTV for the launch of its flagship show MTV LIVE. While serving as studio producer at MTV, his “former child star” status was often parodied during the popular “after-school special” sketches.
In 2008, Wilson left MTV to join SPACE. His first assignment was interviewing George Lucas at Skywalker Ranch (nerve-wracking but awesome, it was). Since then, he’s been ridiculously fortunate to interview an eclectic range of other folks, including: Sir Anthony Hopkins, Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Christian Bale, Kate Beckinsale, Nicolas Cage, Bryan Cranston, Mark Ruffalo, Martin Sheen, Anderson Cooper, John Malkovich, William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy; Directors David Cronenberg, Robert Zemeckis, and Guillermo del Toro; authors George R.R. Martin and Neil Gaiman; Marvel's Stan Lee; the casts of The Twilight Saga, THE BIG BANG THEORY, DOCTOR WHO, STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION, and many others.
Wilson’s writing has appeared in the Toronto Star (Canada's largest newspaper), Toro Magazine, and Metro Newspapers. He appears regularly as a guest on ETALK, CTV NEWS, THE MARILYN DENIS SHOW, and CP24. In 2011, Wilson won (along with co-host Ajay Fry) 'Outstanding Contribution to Film or TV' at the Canadian Sci-Fi Awards.
When not busy hosting INNERSPACE Wilson goes to a ton of movies, reads comic books, and plays drums in the indie-rock band HUDDLE, whose videos can be seen on MuchMusic and MTV, and whose music can be heard in the hit series 'Teen Mom' and Robert Redford's upcoming film The Company You Keep.
Wilson will also appear alongside Norm Sousa as host of the new explosive series NEVER EVER DO THIS AT HOME, coming to Discovery in Spring 2013.
