Ben Browder

He was born in Memphis, Tennessee. He was a journeyman actor for about a decade with a resume that included a failed detective series, a Broadway run in Shakespeare supporting Dustin Hoffman and a handful of feature films before finally breaking through as John Crichton, a 20th Century astronaut who finds himself hurled through space and into a series of adventures in the tv series called Farscape.
His family owned and operated NASCAR race cars, but Browder had always dreamed of a career with NASA, but got sidetracked into an acting career, playing an astronaut in Farscape was like " a dream come true".
He studied at Furman University, Greenville, South Carolina.
After college, he moved to London to study at the Central School of Speech and Drama and while in England, landed his first major work. He also met his wife: Francesca Buller during his stay in London.
