Michael John "Mike" Myers (born May 25, 1963) is a Canadian actor of British parentage, comedian, screenwriter, and film producer. He was a long-time cast member on the NBC sketch show Saturday Night Live in the late 1980s and the early 1990s and starred as the title characters in the films Wayne's World, Austin Powers, the Shrek film series, and The Love Guru. Myers was born and raised in Scarborough, Ontario, Canada, son of Eric Myers (1922–1991), an insurance man and World War II veteran of the Royal Engineers and his wife Alice E. Hind (born 1926), an office supervisor and veteran of the Royal Air Force. Both of his parents are from Liverpool, England. He has two older brothers, Peter Myers and Paul Myers, an indie rock singer-songwriter, broadcaster and author. Myers is of English, Scottish, and Irish ancestry. Myers began school at Sir John A. Macdonald Collegiate Institute but changed to the Stephen Leacock Collegiate Institute in Scarborough, Ontario. He began performing in commercials at age eight, and at ten he made a commercial for British Columbia Hydro Electric, with Gilda Radner playing his mother. In high school he would become the Wayne’s World character later known as Wayne Campbell.
