Biography

A handsome leading man with a quiet onscreen intensity, Rob Estes was launched into the sex symbol stratosphere in the early 1990s with his role as slick Palm Beach homicide detective Chris Lorenzo on the cult favorite, "Silk Stalkings" (USA 1991-99). His smooth operator persona led to his being cast on one the 1990s biggest cultural touchstones, "Melrose Place" (Fox, 1992-99), in which he starred as restaurateur Kyle McBride on the hit primetime soap. Included in the attractive "Melrose" cast was Estes' wife Josie Bissett, with whom he had fallen in love and married after meeting in 1991. Although the couple was together for more than a decade, their surprising 2006 split paved the way for Estes to refocus his energies as an actor. Post-divorce, Estes would come back strong, joining the cast of one of TV's biggest hits, "C.S.I.: Miami" (CBS, 2002- ), as well as the new millennium's reboot of that other 1990s television staple, "90210" (The CW, 2008- ). In an industry where youthful vigor was valued above all else, Estes proved that with age came greater acceptance and opportunities - even for an actor often viewed as nothing more than brooding eye candy during his early heyday.
