Biography

From small roles in Canadian TV to a recurring part on "The X-Files", Chris Owens has found more success in the States then in his native Canada. Born to jazz musicians and raised in Toronto, Owens went on to study at the HB Studio in New York. After working as a bartender he began to land small roles on TV series and movies, until he portrayed Steven Lapiere in the successful British Columbia-set classroom drama, "9B". The movie's concept was soon picked up for a TV series by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. Unfortunately, the show didn't find an audience, and Owens bounced around with roles in a number of unmemorable TV series and movies of the week. One of his roles, however, was on the growing hit "The X-Files", where he initially played a younger version of the mysterious cigarette-smoking man. Owens was asked back to play that and another role on the series until the show's producers cast him as FBI Special Agent Jeffrey Spender. During his run on "The X-Files", he also played the lead in the comedy "The Uncles" as a man balancing a career, a mentally ill sister, and a love affair. His performance in the film won him both Genie and Canadian Comedy Award nominations. Since then he has carried on with smaller one-off roles in TV and increasingly high-profile parts in films, including 2008's "The Incredible Hulk" remake and the espionage action comedy "Red".
