Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Brown-haired, with a mixture of traditional All-American good looks and a brooding punk appeal, Jason Behr made his starring debut with a regular role as one of three aliens masquerading as high school students in the science fiction drama series "Roswell" (The WB, 1999-2001; UPN, 2001- ). More "Dawson's Creek" than "Invasion of the Body Snatchers", "Roswell" featured otherworldly characters who weren't out to conquer earth but merely were trying to avoid capture by the US government by living in all outward appearances like average teenagers. Since their spacecraft crash in 1947, the three managed this without too much difficulty, until Behr's Max Evans uses his extraterrestrial powers to heal his dream girl after she is struck by a stray bullet. Through this heroic miracle he puts himself and his fellow aliens in jeopardy. Their struggle to preserve the secret and their lives drove this series, but regular high school issues and concerns were also addressed on this hour-long drama. No newcomer to The WB, Behr previously guest starred on the network's popular "Buffy, the Vampire Slayer" in 1997, and had a recurring role during the 1998-99 season as the overconfident but somewhat goofy school stud...
