What a charmer Josh Bowman is. The new dreamboat of American prime-time television saunters into the interview room all tall and well put together in cable-knit jumper and jeans. He’s got the beaming grin, the ruffled hair, the tan. He looks like he stepped out of an ad for Abercrombie and Fitch. Except there’s one incongruity. Bowman isn’t a Yank at all, but a nice middle-class, private-schoolboy from Berkshire.
“Where are you from?” he asks me before launching into a pretty passable Irish accent. Accents are his special skill. It’s thanks to his virtuosity with them that an American audience has unquestioningly accepted him as their own. “I’ve worked fairly hard on the American accent, because of the amount of work out there,” he says.
He considers himself a bit Irish, too, thanks to his granny. “She was born in Dublin. I can’t remember where. I’ve spent a lot of time there. I’m so proud of it. I spent a lot of time in Cork, Schull, Bantry … ” he reels off a list of his favourite West Cork coastal towns.
Before he was an actor, Bowman was a professional rugby player, which explains the buff physique. Though he claims now that he hated it. “I loved it when I was in school, because I loved the guys I was playing with, but when it turned serious and it’s a business, it’s different. And with acting, I don’t feel like that. I feel that it’s invigorating. I get to travel and meet people and learn. I can be a lawyer, I can be a thief, I can be a mass murderer and still be me, and not get arrested. Which is great.”
