Biography

Though not on par with Nicole Kidman, Mel Gibson or Russell Crowe, Australian actor Jesse Spencer managed to successfully transition to stardom in the United States. After spending six years on the long-running Aussie soap opera, "Neighbours" (1985- ), which turned him into a popular teen idol, Spencer journeyed to England, where he appeared in a variety of film and television projects like "Lorna Doone" (BBC, 2000) and "Winning London" (2001). He soon transitioned to Hollywood with the comedy "Uptown Girls" (2003) and found stardom as Dr. Robert Chase on the long-running hit, "House" (Fox, 2004-2012). While the a vast majority of the attention naturally went to the show's Emmy-winning star, Hugh Laurie, Spencer more than held his own as a well-off and self-centered diagnostic doctor who routinely butted heads with everyone around him. Though his character's presence was reduced to recurring status following season three, he returned as a regular in season six and finished out the show in 2012. Spencer went on to become the lead on "Chicago Fire" (NBC, 2012- ), which provided him the opportunity to carry his own series.
