Trivia and Quotes

  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Chris (on working with Paul Rudd in "Veronica Mars"): I've got to say it was a lot of fun working with Paul, that was a blast. He's the kindest human, such a really, really nice guy, very genuine, very polite, very professional.

    • Chris (in a January 2007 interview): I think the reality of most television these days is you have to expect that viewers are going to jump in, three episodes or five episodes in, so you've got to be prepared for it.

    • Chris (on working on the AIS Video Yearbook): It was a great way for all of us to get together and work as a team on something we were all so passionate about.

    • Chris (on his name in "Veronica Mars"): "Stosh" and "Piznarski" are two things I've never heard of in my life. I think what it is, is that Piznarski was the name of the director of the pilot. I guess they called him Piz, and they wanted to bring that back. I don't know why, but they did.

    • Chris (on his character in "Veronica Mars"): I asked if I could be the rapist, and they wouldn't let me. They were like "no, no, no, no, no." And then I was like, "can I at least get raped, so I can get a haircut?" I was hoping so bad that they would shave my head, and that didn't happen either. So, frankly, they don't listen to anything I say on that show. Can't win 'em all.

    • Chris (on the set of "Veronica Mars"): I was assuming that most of them had already gone through their little television dramas and didn't like each other or were sort of bored with each other or sick of each other. But I have truthfully never walked onto a more loving set than this one. It's really pretty impressive, how nice these people are.

    • Chris (on how the mature, experienced women of "Private Practice" treats him): I get mothered when I want to be mothered, you know what I mean? Any time I want to be held or get a little back rub, you know, they're game.

    • Chris (on being cast in "Private Practice"): I ended up calling all of my buddies and rubbing it in their faces that I was going to be a doctor before they were. Then, when I got cast as a receptionist, that was kind of a slap in the face. My friends won't let me live it down!

    • Chris (Ozzy Osbourne's reaction to the relationship between his and Kelly's characters on "Life As We Know It"): Kelly hadn't showed her father the pilot because she was afraid he was going to freak out when he saw us kissing. I was a little scared myself. And then finally Sean ended up showing it to him. So, he comes out of the trailer and I was the first one he saw and I go 'I want you to know I was a total professional about everything please don't freak out.' And, he comes up to me and punches me in the stomach and then gives me a hug and tells me he loves it and walks away. It was a great Ozzy experience.

    • Chris (on parent's complaining about "Life As We Know It"): The message more often or not are the consequences of losing your virginity too early. I wonder if some parents are even watching the show or just watching the previews. It is frustrating.

    • Chris (on his character's relationship with Kelly Osbourne's character on "Life As We Know It"): I once described it as when the Gods touched the humans in Michelangelo, we don't really take it that serious. We just kind of go in and tell jokes and make sure we have fresh breathe. Since our relationship is kind of more comical we don't have to have these hot and heavy makeout scenes.

    • Chris (on auditioning and his character on "Life As We Know It"): Originally I went in for Dino and then they put me in for Jonathon, It seemed to be the best fit and I think it is the closest to who I am. In terms of Jonathon's relationships with Deborah it is pretty similar to me. I see a lot of myself in Jonathon in terms of being the hopeless romantic-type, that's always kind of been who I am.

    • Chris (on "Life As We Know It"): I think the show's portrayal of sex through the eyes of teenage boys delivers a very unique message about the emotional attachment that should be involved in sex, but rarely ever is.

    • Chris: I will always be the hopeless romantic, more often pathetic than heroic.

  • Chris Lowell is an up-and-coming young actor who has been working steadily in TV dramas for the past five years.

    Chris Lowell is a talented young actor who got his start playing Jonathan Fields in the 2004 ABC drama Life as We Know It. Although the show was canceled after 13 episodes, Chris made his mark in the teen drama genre. In 2006 he got the role of Stosh "Piz" Piznarski on the cult teen show Veronica Mars. He played the role of Veronica's college boyfriend, an unenviable role since many fans of the show were against the relationship. Chris's next big break came in 2007 when ABC picked up the show Private Practice. Chris was cast as William "Dell" Parker, a receptionist/midwife student. In the second season of the show it was revealed that Dell had a young daughter from a high school relationship, thus giving Dell more depth and a bigger story line. Chris has made the transition from teen to adult roles rather flawlessly and it will be interesting to see what he does in the future.moreless
