A native of Orange County, California, Coby Bell comes to the cast of "Third Watch" from his role as Patrick Owen on "LA Doctors."
The son of Broadway veteran Michel Bell ("The Civil War"), Bell always wanted to entertain people, "I got my acting debut as Baby Bear in my kindergarten class production of 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears,'" says the actor.
Of his "Third Watch" character, Bell sees many similarities, "we're both in the early stages of our careers and both very committed to our work."
Bell's first television role was on NBC's "ER" (executive produced by "Third Watch" creator John Wells). He has also appeared on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Players" as well as the comedies "Smart Guy" and "The Parent Hood."
