Chris Egan was always intrepid when choosing roles -and it paid off in a big way. The Australian-born actor was a teen heartthrob in his native country after starring on the popular soap, "Home and Away" (7 Network, 1988- ) as one of the show's resident bad boys. After moving to Los Angeles, Egan landed guest roles on television series like "Vanished" (Fox, 2006), a political drama about the disappearance of a senator's wife, and a lead role on the short-lived drama, "Kings" (NBC, 2009). On the big screen, Egan's battled dragons in the blockbuster film "Eragon" (2006), and played a computer geek searching for survivors in the sci-fi thriller, "Resident Evil: Extinction" (2007). But it was his turn as Amanda Seyfried's love interest in "Letters to Juliet" (2010) that made Egan an A-list movie star. A modern interpretation of Shakespeare's classic love story, the film provided Egan with the perfect vehicle to showcase his range and prove that he was undoubtedly one of the most talented, charismatic leading men on the rise.
