John Scot Barrowman (born 11 March 1967) is a Scottish-born American singer, actor, dancer, musical performer and media personality, with dual citizenship in the UK and the US.
Barrowman is best known on British television for his acting and presenting work for the BBC. His most prominent television role has been as Captain Jack Harkness in Doctor Who and its spin-off series Torchwood. He has featured in such light entertainment shows as Live & Kicking, Any Dream Will Do, How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria?, and I'd Do Anything as well as appearing on the celebrity ice skating show Dancing on Ice.
