Profile Bio Text
Charles “Chad” Lowe (born January 15, 1968) is an American television actor. He is the younger brother of actor Rob Lowe. He won an Emmy Award for his starring role in Life Goes On as a man suffering with HIV. He has also had recurring roles on ER, Melrose Place, and Now and Again. One of his recent prominent roles was Deputy White House Chief of Staff Reed Pollock on the sixth season of 24. Lowe began his acting career in his teens. An early role was the title character in the short-lived sitcom, Spencer, which he abruptly left. Later he co-starred with Tommy Lee Jones and Robert Urich in the 1987 made-for-TV film April Morning, which depicted the battle of Lexington in the American Revolutionary War. Lowe made his directorial debut in 2000, with the short film "The Audition". He also directed Beautiful Ohio, released in 2007.
Chad was married to actress Hilary Swank between 1997 and 2006. Swank infamously forgot to thank Lowe during her acceptance speech after winning her first Academy Award in 2000 (for Boys Don`t Cry), and she spent nearly every public appearance afterward making up for it. Upon winning her second Oscar in 2005 for Million Dollar Baby, Lowe was the first person she thanked. On January 9, 2006, Lowe and Swank announced their separation, and in May 2006, they announced their intention to divorce. Their divorce was finalized later that year, as discussed by Lowe during his January 24, 2007 interview on Larry King Live. On January 19, 2007, a representative announced that Lowe is dating producer Kim Painter. On January 29, 2009, it was announced that they were expecting their first child in early summer 2009. Daughter Mabel Painter Lowe was born on May 16, 2009 in Los Angeles, California.
