His grandparents, Mike and Edith Stefancsik emigrated from Hungary in 1957 to Lethbridge.[3] Greyston's maternal grandmother, Anna Horvath also immigrated from Hungary with her parents in 1927.

During his high school years, he learned to play guitar after which he formed a band and played at various venues. He also took an acting class for the "extra credits" and fell in love with a new avenue of expression.[4]

CareerEdit

He moved to Vancouver after high school to pursue an acting career. He was cast in a small role in Killer Bash which was followed by another small role in Steven Spielberg's award winning miniseries, Into the West. After small roles in major television shows like Smallville, Blood Ties and The 4400, he was cast in a recurring role in Durham County for which he was nominated for a "Leo Award" for "Best Supporting Performance by a Male in a Dramatic Series". He was later cast in guest roles on Stargate Universe, Sanctuary, Fringe and Flashpoint.
