Born in Toronto, Potter discovered a love of acting in school but never considered pursuing it as a career. Eventually he worked as a stockbroker in Europe and in Canada, while continuing to perform in amateur theater productions. He caught the attention of Martha Henry, one of Canada's leading actresses, who cast him in the Canadian production of "Biloxi Blues" in Toronto. Potter won rave reviews and within a month landed a leading role in the CBC television series "Material World" (1990).

He made a name for himself in television starring in two long-running popular dramatic series, which at one point let to him appearing on screen in two different roles at the same time. He played David Carradine's son and crime fighting partner in "Kung Fu: The Legend Continues" (1993), which debuted in 1993 and aired for four seasons, and starred as a hard-hitting police sergeant for three years in USA Network's "Silk Stalkings" (1991), for which he also served as an episode director. Some of his other credits include CBS's _Open House (2003/I) (TV)_ , Rush of Fear (2003) (TV), the ABC pilots The Big House (2001) (TV) and _"Astronauts" (2002)_ , "Andromeda", the USA Network television movie, The Waiting Game (1998) (TV), as the voice of Gambit in the Fox animated series "X-Men" (1992) and as a guest star on "Will & Grace" (1998).

An actor with a flair for edgy, unconventional roles, Potter recently guest starred as Dr. David Cameron in the first season of Showtime's much-talked-about hit series, "Queer as Folk" (2000). He has also just completed production on the upcoming Miramax feature film release _Spymate (2003)_ and will be seen in the ABC mini-series "Wrinkle in Time, A" (2003) (mini). In 2001, he received the New York International Independent Film & Video Festival Award for best actor for his first feature film role in the drama Rocket's Red Glare (2000/II)
