Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A tall, thin, freckled, redheaded player, Chris Owen carved out a niche in the late 1990s teen movie boom as a memorable young character actor, most often portraying quirky roles. Owen got his start on television, and debuted with a 1993 guest role on the odd CBS drama "Picket Fences", playing the son of a frog obsessed burglary suspect (Michael Jeter). That same year he was featured in an episode of ABC's teen-themed sitcom "Boy Meets World". The actor marked his film debut in 1994, appearing in "It Runs in the Family" starring Kieran Culkin. He could next be seen on the big screen with a role as a young cadet in "Major Payne" (1995), a comedy following a wacky Special Forces US Marine (Damon Wayans) who leads a junior ROTC group during a spell of peacetime unemployment. More substantial was Owen's co-starring turn in that year's "Angus", giving an effective performance as the geeky best friend of the tormented title character. A smaller role in the Farley/Spade vehicle comedy "Black Sheep" followed in 1996.
