Rob Estes is probably best known for his starring role as Chris Lorenzo, the fast-and-loose Palm Beach homicide detective in the cult favourite Silk Stalkings.

More recently, he played recurring roles on Providence, Suddenly Susan and Gilmore Girls. His first big break in television was on the daytime soap Days of Our Lives.

Estes has recently starred in such telefilms as Sweet Temptation, opposite Beverly D'Angelo, and the 2004 romantic comedy I Do, They Don't.

In 2000, he produced and starred opposite Jason Alexander in the independent feature How to Go on a Date in Queens, with Ron Perlman and Kimberly Williams.

A graduate of USC, Estes took a utilitarian approach to entering Hollywood, initially making plans for a career as a stuntman. It was quickly apparent, however, that his talents deserved a wider berth.

Following several years on the hit show Melrose Place, he starred in several well-received but ultimately unsuccessful television pilots. Frustrated with being limited to his work on screen, Estes made the decision to rediscover his craft on stage.

He received excellent reviews for his starring role in Tennessee Williams' The Rose Tattoo, at the Hudson Theatre in Los Angeles.

When Estes moved with his family to Seattle in early 2003, he sought out opportunities in that city's thriving theatre scene. He had roles in productions in Seattle and at the nationally recognized Coeur d'Alene Rep in Idaho.

This experience culminated in his performance as the duplicitous Solyony in Chekhov's Three Sisters (adapted by Craig Lucas) at the famed Intiman Theatre, under the tutelage of Artistic Director Bartlett Sheer.

Born in Norfolk, Virginia, Estes continues to reside in Bellevue, Washington, a suburb of Seattle.

He has two children, Mason and Maya.
