American screen actor, blue-eyed and dark haired; very handsome, he made his acting debut at the age of 15 with ABC's short-lived sitcom A New Kind of Family (1979–1980) and was first acclaimed at 19 in the TV movie Thursday's Child.
The son of an attorney, he was four when his parents divorced and after moving to Los Angeles, he began acting at eight. By his teens, he was one of the young crowd, a member of the "brat-pack." In 1989, he was severely embarrassed when an underground film made the rounds of him in the buff with a bedroom encounter in Atlanta, Georgia. The frisky threesome had been filmed in a drunken escapade on 17 July 1988.
After knowing make-up girl Sheryl Berkoff for two years, they married in 1991. Their first child, Edward Matthew Lowe, was born on 24 September 1993. Two years later on 6 November 1995, another boy John Owen joined the family.
Lowe finally hit the big time in an award-winning hit TV series in 2000, West Wing, playing an attorney and member of the presidential staff.
In the suits and countersuits department, the Lowes had their hands full for a couple of years. On 7 April 2008, the actor blogged that a former employee of his, a nanny, demanded $1.5 million or would accuse the actor and his wife Sheryl of unwanted sexual behavior. The Lowes filed a lawsuit that same day. On 14 April, their former nanny sued them in Santa Barbara accusing both of sexual harassment and unwelcome, offensive behavior. The problems continued to grow and Lowes have sued two other former staffers for spreading lies and breaching confidentiality agreements. Another of their former nannies sued Sheryl Lowe for sexual harassment. Soon after, Lowe and his wife dropped their lawsuit against their chef. The legal battle ended in May 2009.
