Occupation Actor

Nicholas James Sebastian Rowe (born 22 November 1966) is a Scottish actor.[1]



Rowe was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, the son of English parents Alison, a singer, and Andrew Rowe, a Member of Parliament and editor.[2] He attended Eton and received a BA in Hispanic Studies from Bristol University. Rowe was the partner of Lou Gish until her death in February 2006.

He has appeared in numerous movies, television programmes and theatre plays, though he is most recognised as Sherlock Holmes in Steven Spielberg's production Young Sherlock Holmes, having read for the part while a pupil at Eton.[3] The film's director Barry Levinson felt Rowe's performance was closest to a young Basil Rathbone.
