Biography & Age
Joshua Tobias Bowman was born in Berkshire, England on the 4th of March 1988 into a middle-class Jewish family. He was raised alongside his sister, Scarlett Bowman, who like him, is also an actor. Though Josh has found fame in Hollywood, Scarlett found her fame in their home country in the 90s on the show, Hollyoaks.
At the moment, not much is known about Josh Bowman’s early education history but we do however know he almost had a completely different career and his fans would have never gotten to see him play Daniel Grayson on television. Up until the age of 18, he was a rugby player who later became a full-on professional. Sadly, he had his career cut short due to two shoulder dislocations in the first year of his professional contract. His contract was subsequently revoked. At the time, he played for the rugby team, Saracens F.C.
With rugby no longer a feasible career option for Josh Bowman, he turned to the acting industry where he made his debut in a television show in 2007, as Dimitri in Genie in the House. He starred in two episodes of the show. His debut was not the career-making catalyst he wished for and Josh had to wait two years before he was cast in another role, this time as Zeus in the film, Myths. His next major role was back in television when he began to appear in Holby City as Scott James. He starred in nine episodes of the show, from 2009 to 2010.
2010 was not a bad year for Josh Bowman as he continued to slowly build his acting profile with the films 13Hrs and Prowl. He got the biggest role of his career thus far in 2011 when he was cast in the TV show, Revenge.
Josh was cast in the main role as Daniel Grayson and appeared in all four seasons of the show, in a total of 77 episodes. His performance and popularity on the show did not go unnoticed and he was nominated for a Teen Choice Award as Best Breakout Star. It is hard to say if Revenge was his breakout role, as his appearance on the show hasn’t yet translated in a plethora of roles for him in both film and television but it was his most enduring role in a television project. Since the show ended, he has starred in a couple of other shows including Time After Time where he played Jack the Ripper. Josh also appeared in an episode of the shows Doctor Who and Lore.
Apart from the Teen Choice nomination, his other recognition includes getting named as one of Screen International’s Stars of Tomorrow in 2011. He is a graduate of Lee Strasberg Institute in New York where he studied method acting.
