Christian Kane (born June 27, 1974) in Dallas, Texas. Kane and his family moved around a lot throughout the South before settling down in the small town of Norman, Oklahoma. He attended the University of Oklahoma where he had plans to major in Art History. But Kane wanted to try out acting. So Kane took his truck and his life savings of a few hundred dollars and headed to Hollywood, the City of Angels.
Kane had many jobs including mailroom clerk for a talent agency. His big break came when he played Ryan "Flyboy" Legget, the male lead, in a new show called Fame L.A. (1997) based on the hit movie and 80s tv show. Unfortunately the show was cancelled after 22 episodes. Christian's next role was in Aaron Spelling's Rescue 77 (1999) where he played Wick Lobo a.k.a "cowboy" because of his radical application of "gutter" medicine. Due to poor ratings the show was cancelled. Not to be defeated, Kane was soon cast as a production assistant in Edtv (1999) starring 'Woody Harrelson' as well as a made for TV Western called Crossfire Trail (2001) with 'Tom Selleck'.
Kane is filming another feature flick with Freddie Prinze Jr. and Marc Blucas titled Summer Catch (2001).
