Actor-director Tate Donovan began his career in front of the camera while barely out of his teens, only to discover a second vocation as a television director some 20 years later. Blessed with boyish good looks and a winning smile, Donovan made early feature film appearances in modest offerings like the teenage sci-fi adventure "Space Camp" (1986). Supporting roles in "Clean and Sober" (1988) and "Memphis Belle" (1990) offered more adult material and paved the way for Donovan's first starring role in the romantic-comedy "Love Potion No. 9" (1992), co-starring Sandra Bullock. Behind the scenes, Bullock became one of several A-list actresses Donovan would become romantically involved with, followed by the likes of Jennifer Aniston and Lauren Graham. He starred alongside Jon Cryer in the short-lived sitcom "Partners" (Fox, 1995-96) then voiced the Greek demigod "Hercules" (1997) for the Disney animated feature. During his time as a regular cast member on the teen drama "The O.C." (Fox, 2003-07), Donovan began to segue into directorial work, a dual role he continued during his three-year stint on the legal drama "Damages" (FX, 2007-2010; Audience Network, 2011- ). Multi-talented and ambitious, Donovan's willingness to diversify assured him the kind of job security rarely enjoyed in the unpredictable professional landscape of Hollywood.
