A celebrated actor, Rob Lowe made his feature film debut in Francis Ford Coppola’s The Outsiders. He went on to star in other popular films such as St. Elmo’s Fire, About Last Night, Wayne’s World, Tommy Boy, Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, Behind the Candelabra, The Invention of Lying, Thank You for Smoking, Oxford Blues, and Mulholland Falls. He has also been successful with highly-rated television miniseries such as Salem’s Lot and The Stand.
Lowe has also appeared in many highly acclaimed television series including Brothers & Sisters, Parks and Recreation and Californication. One of his most popular roles was Sam Seaborn on the hit drama The West Wing. During this time, the show won a record four consecutive Emmys for Outstanding Drama, and Lowe garnered an Emmy nomination and two Golden Globe nominations for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series. He was nominated three times for the Screen Actors Guild award, winning twice. His most recent project, playing President John F. Kennedy in Killing Kennedy on the National Geographic Channel, broke a record to become the network’s most watched telecast.
Off-screen, Lowe is a dedicated activist in the fight against cancer. With a family history of the disease – his grandmother and great grandmother both battled breast cancer and his father is a non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma survivor – Lowe works to raise awareness and emphasize the importance of continued support for cancer survivors.
