David Cubitt is a Canadian actor best known for his role as Detective Lee Scanlon, a Phoenix police detective who has come to respect Allison's knack for seeing what he can't and intuiting things that seem to elude others, on the television series Medium, from 2005-2011.

Born in England to a Dutch mother and British father, Cubitt was six months old when his family moved to Vancouver. While attending the University, he studied acting full time and soon afterward, he landed a role as a rugby player in Alive, starring Ethan Hawke.

Alive helped spark Cubitt's career. He quickly landed one part after the next, including a role on the hit Canadian series Traders, in which he starred for three and a half years.

The show, about the high-stakes lives of a group of investment bankers, won the 1998 Gemini Award for Best Dramatic Series and Cubitt won the 1997 Gemini Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Continuing Leading Dramatic Role.

After landing a development deal with CBS, Cubitt moved to Los Angeles and joined the cast of the series Michael Hayes, playing the brother of David Caruso's title character.

He also had a recurring role on the Paramount produced drama That's Life, starring Heather Paige Kent, Ellen Burstyn and Paul Sorvino.

Cubitt's film credits include Swann, starring Brenda Fricker; I Shot A Man in Vegas, starring John Stockwell and Janeane Garofalo; K2; Michael Mann's Ali; and The Perfect Son, for which he received the John Garfield Award for Best Actor at the Method Fest Film Festival.

For television, Cubitt starred in several telefilms including the NBC mini-series 10.5 with Kim Delaney and the movie John Christmas.

He also starred in the series The American Embassy and in the Michael Mann series Robbery Homicide Division.
