"Christian Kane" (born June 27, 1974 in Dallas, Texas) is an American actor and singer/songwriter, best known for his role as the morally ambiguous lawyer Lindsey McDonald on the show ''Angel'' and as lead singer for the country rock/american band KANE.
Though born in Texas, his family moved around the South and Midwest before finally settling in Norman, Oklahoma. While studying Art History at the University of Oklahoma, Christian caught the acting bug and left before finishing the degree. He headed for Los Angeles with his old pickup truck and few hundred dollars to pursue the career of his dreams.
Starting out in the mailroom of a talent agency, his first acting role was in the 1997 TV series, ''Fame L.A.''. The breakthrough year for Kane, though, was 1999. He was first involved in two projects; ''Rescue 77'', a short lived television series, and the film ''Edtv''. Then Kane landed the role of Wolfram & Hart lawyer Lindsey McDonald on the ''Buffy the Vampire Slayer'' spin-off ''Angel''. His run on the show would prove to be a good one, appearing as a recurring character in three of the five seasons.
