Chris Lowell first found fame in a string of teen dramas before graduating to the big-screen with minor parts in several Oscar-winning films. Born in Atlanta, GA in 1984, Lowell landed his first role as nervous soul Jonathan Fields on the comedy-drama "Life As We Know It" (ABC 2004-05) just a few weeks into his film studies course at the University of Southern California. Two years later, he joined the cast of "Veronica Mars" (UPN 2004-07) as Stosh 'Piz' Piznarski, the self-effacing college freshman who later dates the titular detective, a role he would reprise in the cult show's Kickstarter-funded big-screen revival in 2014.
After making his cinematic debut as crystal meth enthusiast Delaney in the "Rashomon"-esque "Spin" (2007), Lowell starred as one of four high school seniors who attempt to rob a bank in coming-of-age drama "Graduation" (2007) and appeared in two episodes of "Grey's Anatomy" (ABC 2005-) as Oceanside Wellness Group receptionist William 'Dell' Parker. Lowell was then given the chance to flesh out this character, also a qualified nurse and single father, when he joined the hit medical series' spin-off "Private Practice" (ABC 2007-13), appearing in three seasons before being written out in tragic circumstances. Lowell then returned to the film world with consecutive small parts in awards favorites, firstly George Clooney's assistant Kevin in the bittersweet recession tale "Up In The Air" (2009) and then Emma Stone's love interest Stuart Whitworth in ensemble civil rights drama "The Help" (2011). Lowell remained in the 1960s for his next outing when he played college newspaper editor Peter in Vietnam War-based romantic drama "Love & Honor" (2013) before taking on his first lead role as The Boy, a twenty-something who attempts to win back the girl of his dreams in Maggie Kiley's indie rom-com "Brightest Star" (2013). Showcasing his versatility, Lowell then made the move from in front of to behind the cameras when he co-wrote, produced and directed "Beside Still Waters" (2013), an ode to the power of friendship inspired by his own experiences growing up, which was awarded the narrative winner at the Austin Film Festival. In the same year, he provided the snark as workshy Corporal Derrick Hill, one of three brothers assigned to a platoon of misfits and goofballs in the critically-acclaimed military sitcom "Enlisted" (Fox 2013- ).

|"One of the things that, by pure happenstance, worked out in my favor is that no one else in my family is an actor or aspires to be, and most of my friends aren't actors. Most of my friends are the people that I grew up with back in Georgia. It's really helpful to be surrounded by a world that's bigger than the entertainment industry." Lowell quoted in Interview Magazine, Jan. 29, 2014.|
