There have been a plethora of English actors who have found success on US TV shows recently following the achievement of Hugh Laurie in House.
One of the latest is Lloyd Owen, who joins ‘The Innocence Project’– a TV drama for CBS which centers around a group of fiercely dedicated law students who take on forgotten and unwanted pro bono cases for clients who were possibly wrongfully convicted. Also in his leading role as casino owner Ripley Holden, in the musical-dramedy series “Viva Laughlin,” (CBS, 2007) -with a certain bloke called Hugh Jackman.
Hero Candidate: Richard Lloyd Owen was born in 1966 in London UK. He was brought up in the nation’s capital, although both of his parents were Welsh.
Trained at the National Youth Theatre and the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) in London, he is probably best known for his portrayal of Indiana Jones‘s father Professor Dr. Henry Jones, Sr. in The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles between 1992 and 1993 and for playing Paul Bowman-MacDonald in the BBC Scotland television series Monarch of the Glen from 2002 to 2005.
