Scott Lowell is best known for his roles on television as Ted Schmidt in Showtime’s popular, critically acclaimed and groundbreaking series Queer As Folk (for which he was twice nominated for a Prism Award) as well as his portrayal of Dr. Douglas Filmore on the long running series Bones. Mr. Lowell was born in Denver and raised in the suburbs of New Haven, Connecticut. He majored in theater at Connecticut College and also studied acting at the National Theatre Institute (he was fortunate to study at both schools with the legendary Morris Carnovsky). Upon graduating he moved to Chicago, where over the course of a decade he immersed himself in the local theater scene, including performances at the famed Steppenwolf and Goodman theatres.

Mr. Lowell moved to Los Angeles in 1998 and quickly found himself in guest roles on sitcoms, including a favorite turn on Frasier. In 2000 he landed the role of the luckless Ted on Queer As Folk and spent the next five years shuttling back and forth between LA and Toronto, where the series was filmed. Since Queer as Folk he has appeared in a number of independent films and television series including The Fosters, CSI, Castle, CSI:NY, NCIS, Heroes, Criminal Minds, Leverage and various voices in the animated series American Dad.

In 2014-15 Mr. Lowell made his Broadway and West End (London) debuts in the hit revival of The Elephant Man starring Bradley Cooper and Patricia Clarkson. Elsewhere he has appeared on stage at the Williamstown Theatre Festival, Berkshire Theatre Festival, Eugene O’Neill Theatre Center, A Noise Within, Pasadena Playhouse, Furious Theatre Company and Artists Repertory Theatre.

Most recently Mr. Lowell has written, produced and starred in the first season of his own series called Adoptable, a comic fake documentary loosely based on the actual search for his birth parents and his life as an adult adoptee. Adoptable also stars Noah Wyle, Sharon Gless and Jim O’Heir among many others and is currently being looked at by a number of streaming platforms.

Mr. Lowell remains a passionate voice for equality and speaks for many causes whenever he can. In his spare time, he can be found hiking (especially with his puggle Gertie), traveling, cooking, discovering new bands while keeping up with old favorites and occasionally even playing the French horn. He is an avid reader and an awful, but effective, ping-pong player. He currently resides in Los Angeles and New York.
