Joshua Bowman set tongues wagging late in the first decade of the 21st century as the young Brit heartthrob du jour, seeing as much ink for whom he dated as for his nascent career on U. K. and American television. A onetime professional rugby player, Bowman made a splash on British television in 2009 as the swoon-worthy heart patient inexorably drawn to the darling of the BBC's medical drama "Holby City" (1999- ). He drew even more buzz for a rumored Caribbean tryst with ill-fated chanteuse Amy Winehouse, beginning a run as tabloid fodder for celebrity magazines. After doing his time in some lo-fi horror outings and the experimental Norwegian-made showbiz insider indie "Exteriors" (2011), Hollywood came calling with a recurring guest role on the ABC Family series "Make It or Break It" (2009- ). Bowman popped up as a new suitor to former child star Miley Cyrus in 2011 while shooting their onscreen romance "So Undercover" (2012); his love life again made headlines in 2012 as he began a relationship with his co-star Emily VanCamp on the hit high-society intrigue series "Revenge" (ABC, 2011- ). Fast becoming a favorite for paparazzi on "PDA" watch, Bowman in short order has become the latest U.K. "It" boy export.
