Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

After making a name for himself Down Under in leading romantic roles and disturbing genre films, Australian actor Alex O'Loughlin made a splash in the U.S. as the new cast member on the sixth season of the Emmy-winning police drama, "The Shield" (FX, 2002-09). Though only part of the show for one season, O'Loughlin made enough of an impression to be embraced by American audiences. After "The Shield," he made his network television debut with a leading role in the acclaimed, but unfortunately short-lived supernatural procedural, "Moonlight" (CBS, 2007-08), which earned him a loyal fan base that wanted to see him back on the small screen after the show was quickly canceled. He did return the following year, starring in the medical drama "Three Rivers" (CBS, 2009), which was booted off the air even faster. But with a starring turn in the feature romantic comedy, "The Back-Up Plan" (2010) opposite Jennifer Lopez, O'Loughlin reassured fans that he was in it for the long haul.
