He ran Darkyl Media, a web site design firm. He also founded Fusefilm.com, an internet community for filmmakers.
Hewlett got his first computer in his mid-teens and became a self-described "computer nerd." While in high school in Toronto his acting career also began, starring in student films by Vincenzo Natali. He dropped out of high school in his senior year to pursue careers in acting and computing. He appeared in many low-budget horror movies, such as The Darkside and the minor cult favourite Pin. He also guest starred in several television series. In 1996 he got one of his more well-known roles, as Grant Jansky on Traders. In 2001 he moved with his wife, Soo Garay, to Los Angeles to further their acting careers. He and Soo Garay divorced in 2004.Due to the filming of Stargate Atlantis in Vancouver, Hewlett now lives in Washington, near the border of Canada, together with his girlfriend Jane Loughman.Hewlett is also a self-confessed science fiction fan, and is quoted as saying that Doctor Who (favorite Doctor: Tom Baker) is what first sparked his love for the genre and that he made science fiction when he was younger in England on his 8 millimetre camera with friends.
Hewlett more or less had his early dreams of working in science fiction made a reality when he first had a three-episode guest role on Stargate SG-1 as the Stargate expert, Rodney McKay, which eventually grew into his current starring role on Stargate Atlantis.He has five younger sisters. One of them, Moyra, worked with him as an Art Director in Hewlett's internet company Darkyl New Media. Another sister, Kate Hewlett, who is also an actress, played Jeannie Miller, McKay's sister, in the Stargate Atlantis season 3 episode "McKay and Mrs. Miller". She also appears as Marilyn in his directorial debut, "A Dog's Breakfast".
