Chris Lowell

Christopher '"Chris" Lowell was born on October 17, 1984 in Atlanta, Georgia. He attended the prestigious Atlanta International School, where he became interested in theatre and filmmaking. He currently attends University of Southern California, where he was discovered in his first year while playing beach volleyball. In his spare time, he enjoys amateur filmmaking, theatre, and traveling.

After being discovered and going through his first major audition, he landed a role on the ABC drama "Life As We Know It", his most notable role to date. Of the show's trio of male characters, Lowell portrayed Jonathan Fields, the "least confident but most creative and grounded of the three". However, 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 when "Life As We Know It" ended in early 2005 and summer 2006, when he was cast as Stosh "Piz" Piznarski in the third season of "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 Kristen Bell has said that, offscreen, the actor who portrays Logan, Jason Dohring, and Chris Lowell are very good friends. Lowell will also appear in the upcoming film "Graduation."
