. . . Rodney Rowland . . .

Born in Newport Beach, California, Rowland is the youngest of four children and the son of a minister.[2] After a brief time as a student on a watersport scholarship at Pepperdine University, Rowland went to Europe and worked as a model for Haute Couture labels like Gucci, Versace, and J.Crew.[citation needed] On the suggestion of Bruce Weber, he began taking acting classes and took on roles in film and theater.

Rowland’s first big break was in James Wong and Glen Morgan‘s science fictionwardrama, Space: Above and Beyond in 1995. Despite auditions that were disastrous, Morgan and Wong brought Rowland on board to play the genetically engineeredIn Vitro Cooper Hawkes. During the shoot for the episode “Who Monitors the Birds?”, he became ill due to over work, succumbing to two bouts of exhaustion and bronchitis.

Rowland would later work with Wong and Morgan again on The X-Files in the season four episode “Never Again“, appearing alongside Gillian Anderson. His character, Ed Jerse, emotionally connects with Anderson’s Dana Scully and encourages her to have a small Ouroboros snake tattooed on the small of her back. Rowland would later date Anderson until 1998.

He appeared in a recurring role on Veronica Mars portraying Liam Fitzpatrick, a lead character of the Irish gang and family of crime, the Fighting Fitzpatricks.
