Biography

Rugged and athletic, this Texas-born actor has worked almost exclusively on the small screen. He was just shy of 30 when he landed his first major gig on the short-lived prime-time soap Savannah. After the show was cancelled, Eads toiled in a few made-for-TV movies before landing a memorable three-episode guest stint on ER as a paramedic who wooed Julianna Margulies' character Carol Hathaway. Eads starred on another ill-fated series, Grapevine, but CSI is what made him big. As forensic analyst Nick Stokes, he earned an increasingly strong fan base. Off-screen, he's kept a relatively low profile, even during a reported 2004 contract dispute.

Fast Facts

  • Member of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity, Texas Epsilon chapter.
  • Was so popular in the series premiere of Savannah as the murdered Travis that producers brought him back in flashbacks, and eventually as the twin brother of his original character.
  • Was fired from CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and then rehired (along with costar Jorja Fox) in 2004 following a reported contract dispute.
  • Part owner of the Cinespace complex in Los Angeles.
  • "Evel [Knievel] was a true superhero," he told TV GUIDE in 2004 as he promoted a TV movie about the daredevil's life. "He appealed to that sense of adventure in all of us, the part that wishes we could laugh death in the face, but we can't."
  • In 2009, he was voted onto the annual TV GUIDE list of TV's Sexiest Stars.
