A charismatic performer who made his mark on the musical stage, actor and occasional singer John Barrowman earned legions of fans with a number of acclaimed theatrical performances in London and on Broadway before becoming a huge star on British television as Captain Jack Harkness on both "Doctor Who" (BBC1, 1963-89; 2005- ) and "Torchwood" (BBC, 2006-11). Prior to his small screen success, Barrowman had a wide range of stage roles, playing Billy Crocker in an acclaimed revival of "Anything Goes" (1989), Raoul in a West End production of "The Phantom of the Opera," and Joe Gillis opposite Betty Buckley's Norma Desmond in "Sunset Boulevard" (1994). After a short-lived run as the assistant district attorney from a wealthy political family on the primetime soap "Central Park West" (CBS, 1995-96), he shined in a featured role in the Stephen Sondheim review "Putting It Together" (1998). Barrowman moved on to play the titular prince-turned-monster in "Disney's Beauty and the Beast" (1999), while returning to the small screen for another brief run on "Titan" (NBC, 2000-01). Following a pair of forgettable big screen appearances, Barrowman became Jack Harkness on "Doctor Who," earning a legion of fans that helped spawn the critically hailed spin-off "Torchwood." The popularity of both series won the attention of Hollywood and shipped Barrowman off to the U.S. for "Torchwood: The New World" (Starz, 2011), which poised the actor to become an even bigger star.
