Profile Bio Text
An ex-child rodeo star, C. Thomas Howell was earmarked as one of the most promising young actors in the mid 1980s after an eye-catching performance in the teen coming-of-age epic The Outsiders (1983). Other roles followed, including the violent Cold War invasion drama Red Dawn (1984), and a co-starring part alongside Jamie Lee Curtis in Grandview, U.S.A. (1984). His career was not helped by the controversial racial comedy Soul Man (1986), which was not well-received. However, he did meet and fall in love with his co-star from that movie, Rae Dawn Chong, whom he later married.
Whilst superstardom has eluded him, there`s no doubting that Howell has been in consistent demand with film producers. He has notched up in excess of 90 feature film appearances. including starring roles in Side Out (1990), Gettysburg (1993), Baby Face Nelson (1995), Fatal Affair (1998), Asylum Days (2001) and Hoboken Hollow (2005).
Known as a friendly and likable person to his fans, Howell lives with his current wife Sylvie, and their three children Isabelle, Dashiell & Liam.
