Jeff Roop portrays Drew French a troubled teenager at the time he was turned into a Vampire. A gifted artist when he uses his talent to paint portraits of living people, or even plants his paintings drains the life energy of the person or plant and they wither and die when the portrait is completed. So his talent is almost empathic directed mainly at the person who he is concentrating on, his obsession of Sherry could have been because he understood what  she was going through, a period of rejection , no one understanding her emptiness her wanting the warmth of family and true friends, that is until their paths cross. Drew also hates the fact that he is a Vampire and would darely love to die than go on as a vampire, but after meeting Sherry, uses his obsession that turns to love to cling to life. When given the choice of living or dying he chooses to live.Jeff's performance is sensitive and makes you feel sorry for him, in that what he wants to attain is still so far away.
A Master's graduate from the Moscow Art Theatre School and Carnegie Mellon University, Jeff Roop is no stranger to stage, film and television. Has appeared in NBC's "Ground Zero", "Twice in a Lifetime", the CBC's "A People's History of Canada" and the American popular soap "Guiding Light".

Jeff was born and raised in Montreal, Quebec, Canada to a businessman father and a kindergarten teacher mom. As a child he was very shy, far too shy to attempt acting. It wasn't until he was pursuing a business degree at McGill University that, on the advice of an English professor, he began taking acting classes and performing in college plays. His acting debut was playing the role of Steve in a local theatre production of "The Shadow Box". Once Jeff completed his undergraduate degree he passed on law school to go to theatre school at the Moscow Art Theatre, in Russia, and at Carnegie Mellon University, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where he obtained his Master's Degree in acting offered jointly by both schools.

His first professional television job was on an episode of the soap opera "The Guiding Light" and his first professional theatre role was playing Brian in A.A. Milne's "Mr. Pim Passes By" in an off-Broadway production. Jeff then returned to Canada, appearing in numerous American and Canadian television shows, and landed his first feature film role, as Brad in the movie "Free Money" (1998), starring Marlon Brando. He also founded the critically acclaimed theatre company Arbat Theatre in his hometown of Montreal. 2001 saw him land his first starring role in a television series, as Drew in "Vampire High" (2001), a show which airs in many countries and has found a cult following. In 2001, he also had a starring role in an upcoming NBC movie of the week. 2002 saw Jeff land his first starring role in feature film, playing the character Kootch in Awake (2002). Since then he has played various roles in different television projects and returned to the stage, playing Warren in Kenneth Lonergan's "This is our Youth". He currently resides in Toronto.
