Brendan Cowell is an Australian actor, screenwriter and director. Cowell was born in Sydney. He stumbled upon acting by accident while waiting for his sister to come out of a rehearsal; he was then cast in a commercial at age 8 which made him a victim of bullying at school when kids saw him on the television. He went to Charles Sturt University, in Bathurst, to complete a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre/Media, originally considering journalism as a career option.

Brendan was born to parents Yvonne and Bruce 'Bruiser' Cowell. He has two older sisters, Belinda and Jacqui (who was part of pop group Girlfriend). Was a self confessed loner at primary school, which he said was due to his reading poems out at assembly and making up little plays and forcing people to watch them.

Cowell admits to being quite a loner in school but with hard work and refusing to give up is the only thing that made is bullying easier to endure. Now living his dream he can look back on those days and be proud of what he has become.

I attended an all girls school and we used to dream of a man that enjoyed reading poetry and acting. In another location he could have been absolutely adored but I believe he is getting that attention now.
