Rob Estes is probably best known for his starring role as Chris Lorenzo in Silk Stalkings. More recently, he had recurring roles on Providence, Suddenly Susan and Gilmore Girls. His first big break in television was on Days of Our Lives.
Estes recently starred in such telefilms as Sweet Temptation and the 2004 ABC Family romantic comedy I Do, They Don't. In 2000, he produced and starred in the independent feature How to Go on a Date in Queens.
After graduating from USC, Estes took a utilitarian approach to entering Hollywood and made plans for a career as a stuntman. However, it was quickly apparent 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 in his starring role in The Rose Tattoo at the Hudson Theatre in Los Angeles. When he moved with his family to Seattle in early 2003, he sought out opportunities in that city's thriving theatre scene. He had co-starring roles in productions in Seattle and at the nationally recognized Coeur D'Alene Rep in Idaho. This experience culminated in his co-starring performance as Solyony in Chekhov's Three Sisters (adapted by Craig Lucas) at the Intiman Theatre, under the tutelage of Bartlett Sheer.
His current role is Det. Sean Cole in ABC's The Evidence.
Born in Norfolk, Virginia, Estes resides in Bellevue, Washington. He has two children, Mason and Maya.
