This young blond actor made his debut as a teenager marooned on an island in the forgettable "Return to the Blue Lagoon" (1991). Later that same year, Krause appeared in the small film "December" as a prep school boy affected by Pearl Harbor and in the teen film "An American Summer." He garnered some attention as the younger half of a mother-son energy-draining vampire team in the box-office hit, "Sleepwalkers" (1992). He subsequently appeared in a series of syndicated TV-movies based on Burt Reynolds' "Bandit" character (as in "Smokey and the Bandit") and in several direct-to-video releases. In 1997, he returned to more mainstream vehicles when he was cast as Matt Cory on NBC's daytime drama "Another World." Two years later, Krause joined the cast of The WB's hit "Charmed" in the recurring role of Leo, a guardian angel and love interest for one of a trio of witch sisters.
