Profile Bio Text
Brian Jeffrey Krause (born February 8, 1969) is an American actor. He is best known for his role as Leo Wyatt on the WB Network TV series Charmed from 1998 to 2006. Born in El Toro, California to Alice and Jeff Krause, he is the younger of their two children. His older brother is named Patrick. Brian grew up in Southern California and took his first acting class in junior high as a way to avoid a bully in physical education class. In his teens he studied karate, and attended El Toro High School, graduating in 1987. He continued his education at Orange Coast College where he played and lettered in soccer, scoring four goals as a midfielder and forward. Krause was married to Beth Bruce and had a son, Jamen (born in 1996), with her. They later divorced in 2000. He was once linked with Charmed co-star, Alyssa Milano.
Krause landed his first role in 1989 as a student in the TV series TV 101. He later starred in the made-for-TV-movie Match Point, Highway to Heaven, CBS Schoolbreak Special as Matt Henderson, and An American Summer, until he landed his first major role as Richard Lestrange in Return to the Blue Lagoon. He would later film the Bandit series and would land his most notable role of Leo in the WB Network series Charmed (1998-2006). Brian originally auditioned for the role of Andy Trudeau, but was cast as Piper`s handyman love interest, Leo Wyatt. Due to budget restrictions in the 8th season, he was only able to appear in the first 9 episodes before his character was cut in the 10th episode, Vaya Con Leos. It was explained that he had to be frozen until the Charmed Ones beat the "Ultimate Power". He was able to appear in the end of part 1 of the series finale, "Kill Billie Vol. 2" and in part 2 of the series finale, "Forever Charmed". After the end of Charmed, he has appeared in made-for-TV-movies and TV shows such as Mad Men and The Closer. He is currently working on the movie Desertion and just finished the movie Jack Rio.
