Bio

Christian Kane is an American actor and singer/songwriter best known for his role as the morally ambiguous lawyer Lindsey McDonald in the sci-fi series Angel and as lead singer for the country rock band KANE.

Kane was born in Dallas, Texas. He and his family moved around a lot throughout the South before settling down in the small town of Norman, Oklahoma.

Kane attended the University of Oklahoma, where he had plans to major in Art History. But he wanted to try out acting, so took his truck and his life savings of a few hundred dollars and headed to Hollywood, where his jobs included 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. The show was cancelled after 22 episodes.

Kane's next role was in Aaron Spelling's Rescue 77 (1999), where he played Wick Lobo aka '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.

He also had a role in the 2005 mini-series Into The West, and played the role of Jack Chase in the legal drama series Close To Home, appearing in 20 episodes from 2005-2006.

His most recent film roles are Hide (2007) and Death Walks The Streets (2007).
