Chris Lowell

Christopher "Chris" Lowell was born October 17, 1984 in Atlanta, Ga., where he attended the Atlanta International School and became interested in theatre and filmmaking.

After being discovered and going through his first major audition, Lowell landed a role on the ABC drama, "Life As We Know It," still perhaps his most notable role to date.

Of the show's trio of male characters, Lowell portrayed Jonathan Fields, who has been called "least confident, but most creative and grounded." Despite praise, the series was cancelled after only 13 episodes.

Besides a role in a small film entitled You Are Here in early 2006, Lowell did not have any major roles between Life As We Know It and summer 2006, when he was cast as Stosh "Piz" Piznarski on Veronica Mars.

In the series, Lowell plays a student at Hearst College, and the roommate of Veronica's friend Wallace, thus becoming friends with Veronica herself.

Piz is a perceived threat to the relationship of Veronica and Logan, though star Kristen Bell has said that, offscreen, the actor who portrays Logan, Jason Dohring, and Chris are very good friends.

Lowell will also appear in the upcoming film Graduation, and was recently cast as Dell on the ABC Grey's Anatomy spin-off, Private Practice. The pilot will air in the US on May 3 as an episode of Grey's Anatomy.

He currently attends University of Southern California. In his spare time, Chris enjoys amateur filmmaking, theatre, and traveling. Chris is also a vocalist and harmonica player for the indie acoustic band, Two Shots for Poe.

Private Practice Quotes

Charlotte: My mom always says God doesn't give with both hands. You're young, beautiful, brilliant. There has to be something you can't have.
Amelia: Some days I'd give that all up.
Charlotte: That's just the craving talking. The longer you go without a drink...
Amelia: I drank at your wedding. I thought it was ginger ale. I spit it out.
Charlotte: OK, since then?
Amelia: Nothing, but I can't stop thinking about it.
Charlotte: It was an accident. Don't let a slip turn into a fall. Get your butt to a meeting.

You ever been violated? Anybody rape you lately? Let me tell you what its like. You know those made for TV movies where some woman's crouched down naked in a shower holding her knees and sobbing because when she closes her eyes she can still feel the guys hands on her? How when they show the attack the woman's eyes go all blank and still and she goes to some other place in her mind just to deal with the horror of what's happening to her while some Lillith Fair song plays. It is nothing like that. He's sturdy and sweaty and he licks your face and wipes himself off in your hair and when you try to scream he punches you so hard you see God. And then he goes at you again reaping stuff you didn't even know you had because he enjoyed it so much the first time. I know you're trying to help but if helping me means that everyone is gonna be looking at me the way you're looking at me now please do not help me.
