About Jordan Bridges

Jordan Bridges is an American actor.

He was born on November 13, 1973 in Los Angeles, California, son of actor Beau Bridges and Beau's first wife Julie Landfield. He's the nephew of Jeff Bridges and grandson of Lloyd Bridges and Dorothy Bridges. Jordan has one adopted brother and three half-siblings from his father's second marriage. He married artist-inventor Caroline (Carrie) Eastman in 2002 and has a daughter with her named Caroline (nicknamed "Lola"). Their son Orson was born on October 20, 2005.

Bridges began acting professionally at the age of five in the television film "The Kid from Nowhere," directed by his father. After a break he returned once more in the television film "The Thanksgiving Promise" (1986) starring the entire Bridges family. Not wanting to be a child actor he left acting and attended L.A.'s progressive Oakwood school. The school had a strong emphasis on the arts which got him interested in acting again. He followed it up as a theater major and literature minor at New York's Bard College. Before earning his bachelor's degree, Bridges spent his junior year in England studying at the prestigious London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts, living in a tiny basement flat in Chelsea, eating lots of chicken noodles and attending West End theatre productions on free passes.

Although classically trained, he still worked as a "cater waiter" in New York and Los Angeles for several years each before he started getting roles in films, television series, and theater. He starred in the short-lived NBC series Conviction as Nick Potter, a lawyer from an "old money" family of prominence, who leaves his job at a private law firm to join the Manhattan District Attorney's Office. He is also known for his starring role in the 2002 film New Suit, 2004 film Samantha: An American Girl Holiday and the 2009 Love Comes Softly Movie Series, Love Takes Wing & Love Finds a Home, as well as a recurring role on the TV series, Dawson's Creek. Also a guest role in the series Charmed season four two part premiere episode as Paige's boyfriend Shane. He plays the recurring character Tom Hastings in the Bionic Woman series. He has also played supporting roles in the films Drive Me Crazy, Happy Campers, Frequency, and Mona Lisa Smile.
