Cloverdale's Spencer Drever won an inaugural Joey Award recognizing young Canadian actors for his work in Fargo

A young Cloverdale actor has won a national honour – his first award for the craft.

Spencer Drever has earned a Joey Award for his role as Gordo Nygaard in the FX TV series, Fargo.

The awards celebrate young Canadian performers, and were handed out for the first time at a red carpet gala in New Westminster.

Drever won a Joey in the following category: Young actor aged 12 or younger in a TV series drama in a supporting/recurring role for his turn in Fargo, a made-in-Alberta series which starred Billy Bob Thornton and Martin Freeman.

Drever was also nominated in two other categories recognizing voice over roles and TV commercial work.

Fargo won an Emmy for best miniseries earlier this year. It aired on FX Canada. Season one is now out on DVD/Blu-Ray, and is available on iTunes.
