Christopher Robert (Rob) Bowen is an American actor and producer. Bowen was born in the small town of Shawnee, Oklahoma. Bowen began his acting career as a child doing musical plays at his hometowns’ “Shawnee Little Theater”. As a teenager, he left acting behind to pursue sports, but returned to acting after rediscovering his love for the craft while performing in his senior class play at Bethel High School.
After graduating high school, Bowen left Oklahoma and headed for Dallas, Texas where he quickly landed an agent and went to work. He booked several small projects before securing a single episode role on “Walker, Texas Ranger” starring Chuck Norris. After several years in Dallas, Bowen headed for Los Angeles to pursue his new founded career. Upon arriving in L.A., Bowen went straight to work on several projects including a role opposite of Melissa Joan Hart on the hit television show “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” in 1999.
