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".
