Clare Bowen has enjoyed a flourishing career in film, theatre and television. A native Australian, she has appeared in several of her home country’s iconic television dramas, including “Home and Away,” the medical drama “All Saints,” “The Cut” and the critically acclaimed comedy, “Chandon.”
In her U.S. film debut, Bowen stars as the female lead in the western “Dead Man’s Burden,” which premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival June 2012. Shortly after graduating from the University of Wollongong in 2009, she was offered a lead role in the highly controversial feature film, “The Combination,” directed by David Field. This was followed by a major role in the thriller “The Clinic,” which screened at several international film festivals, and the independent film “Not Suitable for Children,” alongside Ryan Kwanten.
A gifted singer, Bowen has performed in several theatre productions. Most recently she starred as the lead role of Wendla in the Geordie Brookman-directed rock musical, “Spring Awakening,” under the co-artistic direction of Cate Blanchett and Andrew Upton at the Sydney Theatre Company.
