1. Nathan Bowen (Australia)
Nathan is currently in a committed relationship and they have a 3 and half year old daughter.

But he has also played other roles as well including playing a family man, a typical everyday guy, a neurotic bookish character and a troubled soul. His favourite roles are the ones which have genuine substance and heart. He has played a number of substantial roles in several indie films but his best achievement as an actor so far is being featured in ‘The Devil’s 6 Commandments’ which had a small cinema release in Sydney and was selected for the 2011 Melbourne Underground Film Festival – it received a critical review and has been distributed on DVD in the US, UK and Canada.
