Born in Boston and raised in Vermont, Andrew Bowen's career began when - after seeing the movie Grease he announced to his parents that he "wanted to be like John Travolta when he grow up." With his parents full support, 6 month's later, he performed in his first play and after hearing his audience roar with laughter for the first time.... he never looked back.Over the next 12 years, Andrew studied Modern Jazz & Ballet and appeared in dozens of local theater productions in Vermont from Pippin to Guys and Dolls. At the end of his freshman year in High School, a bit of good luck (a director chose his grandmother's house to shoot a commercial at) landed Andrew an agent in New York. He began commuting to the city several times a year to audition and finally, after 4 years of being the "Callback" kid, Andrew landed his first role - as Katheryn Erby's love interest George Stark in the Bill Murray/Richard Dreyfuss comedy What About Bob?Although he received a personal letter from director Frank Oz before the film's release informing him that his role had ended up on the cutting room floor (essentially becoming the extra that just wouldn't go away) he headed for Hollywood undaunted. He was in the union, inspired by the advice Bill and Richard had given him and ready to become a star.Andrew began booking commercials and small movie and TV gigs almost immediately and for the next few years built his resume and honed his craft. His first big break finally came a few years later when he was cast as the lead in Capcom's a live-action interactive video game Fox Hunt playing Jack Fremont - a character best described as 'James Bond meets Dumb and Dumber'. The character gave Andrew a chance to do everything from slapstick physical comedy to drama and martial arts. His performance wound up being so funny, the game was was turned into a feature film, developed as a TV series and landed Andrew a Talent Deal at Warner Brothers Television.While waiting for the Fox Hunt pilot to be shot, Bowen (having studied screenwriting at USC) wrote, directed, financed and shot a short film called Lone Defender, intended as an auditioning piece to play Peter Parker for director James Cameron's Spider-Man movie. He also wrote a very personal and moving coming of age script for what would eventually be his directorial debut "Along The Way" .After the Fox Hunt pilot was not picked up, Andrew joined the cast of the 5th season of Fox's "Mad TV" where - due in no small part to his uncanny impressions - he was quickly called one of the "New Talents to watch" by TV Guide.After a season on the show, with the help of his father, Bowen raised enough money to realize his dream to make his directorial debut "Along the Way". Production started that fall where, aside from his directing and producing duties, he gained over 40lbs to play the films tragic outsider, Jocko. A year later, after receiving rave reviews and Winning ~ Best Feature~ at the Wilmington International Film Festival, Bowen's hopes of distribution were dashed when he found out his producer had stolen funds and the distribution company, while holding his semi-complete masters, went bankrupt: taking the film away from him for over a decade.Thought crushed by the loss of his film Andrew had started a family, found the love of a great women buckled down, kept moving forward and re-start his career. Luckily, Andrew's determination paid off as he has continued to write and land steady acting work ever since.Bowen has appeared in over a hundred and fifty commercials, dozen's of Films, TV shows and Video Games working with such high caliber talents as Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead), Dean Devlin (Independence Day), James Mangold (Walk The Line), Lasse Hallstrom (What's Eating Gilbert Grape) and Jason Reitman (Juno, Up In The Air).Some of Bowen's credits include recurring role's on Magic City, Reno 911! and ER.
