The new year brings big news for Owen, as fans of “Bloodline” find Owen portraying ‘Nolan Rayburn,’ son of ‘Danny Rayburn’ (Ben Mendelsohn) in addition to his season one character, ‘Young Danny,’ putting a twist on the show’s upcoming plotline. He will also appear in the upcoming independent film “Cell” with Samuel L. Jackson, based on Stephen King’s thriller novel of the same name.
Owen, of mostly Welsh and German descent, has a true artist’s nature, and along with acting, is developing his skills in music — bass, violin and mandolin, as well as fine art — drawing, sculpture and photography. He is inspired by Leonardo DiCaprio for his range, longevity in career and charity initiatives. Currently taking a class in Digital Media, he has earned local recognition for his live action and animated short films, and wants to develop as a filmmaker. He holds near and dear to his heart environmental issues and the problem/causes of teen suicide. Having witnessed a close call with cancer in his own family, he also regularly visits Moffitt Cancer Center with his music mentor to help lift the spirits of patients through the art of music.
