BIOGRAPHY

One of the better-known survivors of teen stardom, actor Rob Lowe managed to put his heartthrob status behind him as well as survive a sex tape scandal that might have ended a less charming actor's career. Lowe made his initial impact in teen-oriented movies, flashing his toothpaste commercial smile and essaying a sort of untrustworthy charm in "The Outsiders" (1983) and "St. Elmo's Fire" (1985). But in only a few short years, Lowe took his position as a young, handsome womanizer across the line and his career came to a screeching halt in the wake of a sex tape scandal involving an underage girl. But Lowe rebounded from that seeming career-ender and laid the groundwork for a dramatic career with a number of well-received cable TV movies before enjoying consistent critical and popular success on the Emmy darling "The West Wing" (NBC, 1999-2006). While never regaining the box office status of his Brat Pack days, Lowe made some memorable comedic appearances in "Wayne's World" (1992), and in the Golden Globe-nominated "Thank You For Smoking" (2006), though his steadiest work continued to be primetime roles in "Brothers and Sisters" (ABC, 2006- ), TV movies and miniseries that generally cast him as an earnest hero battling inner, or in the case of his Stephen King offerings, outer demons.
