Born Robert Hepler Lowe on March 17, 1964, in Charlottesville, Virginia, he is one of the prominent survivors of teen stardom. A blue-eyed stud as he is, Lowe succeeded to leave his heartthrob status behind due to a sex tape scandal that might have led to a less charming actor's career. He first got the chance to make an impact in teen-oriented movies, flashing his winning smile and irresistible charm in The Outsiders (1983) and St. Elmo's Fire (1985). But after a short period of time, he took his position as a handsome womanizer across the line with his alleged involvement in a sex tape scandal involving an underage girl. Fortunately, Rob Lowe rebounded from that seemingly career-halting period and set the groundwork for a successful dramatic performance. Namely, he took part of a number of well-received cable TV movies before enjoying consistent critical and popular success on the Emmy darling series The West Wing (NBC, 1999-2006). Even though he has never regained the box office fame of his Brat Pack days, Lowe gave some memorable comedic turns in Wayne's World (1992), and in the Golden Globe-nominated Thank You For Smoking (2006), while his steadiest work remained on TV with his regular roles in Brothers and Sisters (ABC, 2006- ) among other TV movies and miniseries.
