Gregory "Greg" Hemphill (born December 14, 1969) is a Scottish actor and comedian. He has also presented on television and radio. Along with his comedy partner, Ford Kiernan, he is best known in the United Kingdom for his appearances in Still Game and Chewin' the Fat.
Hemphill was born in Glasgow, Scotland, the son of Edward, a chartered accountant, and Anne (née Brophy) Hemphill, a teacher.
The family left Scotland when Greg was 6 years old, and he spent much of his childhood in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, which has contributed to his distinctive Scottish-Canadian accent.
He returned to Scotland to study at the University of Glasgow, where he achieved an MA Honours Degree in theatre, film and television. He is married to Balamory actress Julie Wilson Nimmo; the couple have two sons.
Hemphill was Rector of the University of Glasgow from 2001-04. He narrowly defeated the writer Alasdair Gray in a tight contest for the post and was widely praised for taking an active interest in the role.
