  • While his break came many years before his role on Angel, the role of Lindsey McDonald was the one who got him noticed by the wider public and he became the dream of many teen girls

      Christian Kane is a very talented actor and musician. He is best known for his portrayal of Eliot Spencer in Leverage and Lindsey McDonald in Angel. He is also the lead singer in the country band Kane. Christian has become one of my most favorite actors a few years ago. There was just something really special about him that I just could not ignore.

      While he is well known and respected and have filmed alongside some of the biggest names in Hollywood like David Boreanaz, Angelina Jolie, Ashton Kutchner, Britanny Murphy, Timothy Hutton and more; I feel that he is still largely underrated.

      The reason why he is famous but not an A-lister is simply


      because Hollywood does not know what how to categorize him or what box to put him in. On one hand he has the pretty boy looks, the kind of face you could easily cast in a romantic comedy. But his style and interests were never set on these kind of roles. He always prefers to play the tough guy, preferably someone who actually does some fighting on the set. And of course, there is his super husky voice that just doesn’t fit in any kind of over sweetened dialogue.

      • wider public and he became the dream of many teen girls. There wasn’t anyone who could have pulled off this role- the representative of evil who had to be simultaneously attractive and likable. Being a genuine and strong person who was wearing his business suit as a necessary armor, but clearly not deriving any pleasure or satisfaction from it- this was the vision Christian Kane brought to the character. Anyone else in this role and Lindsey would have ended up being nothing but a secondary character, not a leading personality.

        The Show that has allowed Christian Kane to put his talents to a good use is Leverage- a genius A-Team inspired TV show about a

        gang of thieves and grifters who unite together to help the innocent and steal from the bad guys. Eliot Spencer, whom Kane portrays in the show, is the short-tempered muscle man with country origins. This is where Christian gets to be what her really is all about. Though he does get a couple of cracked ribs during the fight scenes (for real, he does his own stunts).

        Christian Kane’s music is as rebellious as himself. At times it is not politically correct or very polite, but it is always genuine and sincere.

        I definitely see Christian Kane growing and getting more widely recognized in the near future. After Leverage there is no way he could ever be ignored.
