Ben Browder as John Crichton in Farscape

Ben Browder (born December 11, 1962) is an American film and television actor, who garnered a few minor roles in feature films before his leading role on the sci-fi TV series Farscape.

Although born in Memphis, Tennessee he grew up in Charlotte, North Carolina. Browder met his wife, fellow actor Francesca Buller, while studying at the Central School of Speech and Drama in London. Ben appeared in a recurring guest role in the hit TV show "[A Party of Five]" as Sam Brody in its 3rd season in 1997. The couple moved with their two children to Australia during the production of Farscape (1999–2002), on which Browder starred as brash American astronaut John Crichton. Buller played several guest roles on the show. They returned to the United States in 2002 following the cancellation of Farscape. He has received two awards for Best Actor In A Television Role [Saturn Awards] for his acting in Farscape. He appeared in the 2004 movie A Killer Within, co-starring C. Thomas Howell and Sean Young. Also in 2004, he portrayed fellow actor Lee Majors in the made-for-TV film Behind the Camera: The Unauthorised Story of Charlie's Angels.

He returned to play John Crichton in the 2004 SciFi Channel mini-series Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars. The mini-series wrapped up the remaining plotlines of Farscape while leaving open the possibility of future adventures.
