Biography

Having successfully transitioned from modeling to acting, Josh Holloway nonetheless struggled for year in anonymity before finally being plucked from relative obscurity to play the key role of the duplicitous, but ultimately redemptive conman James "Sawyer" Ford on the cult phenomenon "Lost" (ABC, 2004-2010). Prior to his high profile gig on the successful mystery/sci-fi series, Holloway struggled to find his way once he committed to becoming an actor, landing bit parts on shows like "Angel" (The WB, 1999-2004) and "Walker, Texas Ranger" (CBS, 1993-2001) while appearing in low-budget movies like "Mi Amigo" (1999) and "Doctor Benny" (2003). But once he joined the soon-to-be celebrated ensemble cast of "Lost," Holloway's fortunes changed overnight; he went from a complete unknown to a celebrity regularly featured in weekly tabloids. But because of the heavy shooting schedule, which required him and the other cast members to live in Hawaii, he was limited in choosing outside projects. Once the series was over in 2010, however, Holloway was ready to translate his bad boy popularity into other areas, including toplining his own series, "Intelligence" (ABC, 2013- ), assuring any doubters that his fame and talent were no fluke.

Bonus Trivia

.

"We lived in a trailer and had eight dogs, two horses, cats, a cow, a chicken. My dad put the trailer up for sale because he wanted to build us a home, but the sale closed before he finished construction. So my dad said, 'Boys, we're camping!' My brothers and I loved it. Every weekend we went to chicken houses for lumber. My dad once told me he built our entire house for five grand." – Holloway quoted in People magazine, May 4, 2005

Holloway was named one of People magazine's "50 Most Beautiful People in the World" in 2005.
