Chicago native Will Owens obtained his B.F.A. from U.S.C.’s School of Theater before going overseas to attend the British American Drama Academy in London. Besides numerous stage credits, he recently hared the screen with Timothy Hutton as one of the leads in the historical drama Heaven’s Fall. He also had a recurring role on the TV series Justice.
Owens cites thespians Gary Oldman and Daniel Day Lewis as influences. “Gary Oldman just amazes me. He’s a chameleon and 100% dedicated in every role he assumes. As for Daniel Day Lewis, his artistry and craftsmanship is unmatched.
On his Final Run character Sloane:
“I was always intrigued by the dichotomy between Sloane “The Man” and Sloane “The Myth”. He’s a guy who has been eclipsed by his own reputation. His reputation is much deserved, but in a way it ultimately consumed him. The struggle of our public vs. Private lives is something we can all identify with. The sacrifices we must make with our careers and family, and what drives us to make those decisions.”
Will is also pursuing his Doctorate in psychology.
