John Barrowman is an Entertainer with a capital E. He sings, he dances, he acts, he presents, he judges - he is a unique talent in the entertainment industry on both sides of the Atlantic.

In 1989, while in the UK to study Shakespeare as part of his university course, he landed his first professional role starring as Billy Crocker opposite Elaine Paige in the Cole Porter musical Anything Goes. Since then, John’s career as a leading man in musical theatre has seen him star in many West End shows, including Matador, Miss Saigon, The Phantom Of The Opera, and Sunset Boulevard. He also reprised the role of Joe Gillis in Sunset Boulevard on Broadway. Sam Mendes' premiere production of The Fix at the Donmar Warehouse garnered John an Olivier Award nomination as "Best Actor in a Musical", and in 2002 he returned to the role of Billy Crocker for the hugely successful National Theatre revival of Anything Goes. He appeared in the West End most recently as Albin/Zaza in the Menier Chocolate Factory's award-winning production of La Cage Aux Folles, performing to full houses for nine weeks in 2009. This role won John the 2010 What’s On Stage award for "Best Take-over in a Role".

John has also made his name in American television drama, playing Peter Williams in the Aaron Spelling series Titans for NBC and starring in Darren Star's Central Park West for CBS. He returned to US television in Spring 2010 with a five-episode guest-starring role on ABC’s Desperate Housewives. He also had a guest-starring role as a political fixer in the ABC series, Scandal. He played Dark Archer Malcolm Merlyn in The CW network's hit series Arrow, based on the Green Arrow comic books. At the end of 2018, he battled snakes and crocodiles in the Australian rain forest in ITV's I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!, surviving all the way to the final day.

His most famous television role is undoubtedly that of sci-fi hero Captain Jack Harkness, whose first appearance in the revamped Doctor Who created such an impact that he was given his own spin off series, Torchwood. The show achieved the best viewing figures ever on BBC America and has been broadcast around the world. For the fourth series, titled Torchwood: Miracle Day, the BBC teamed up with the US Starz Channel, filming in Wales and the US. The show aired on the Starz Channel and BBC One from July 2011.
