April Bowlby Wiki Bio

April Michelle Bowlby was born in Vallejo, California USA, on 30 July 1980, so under the zodiac sign of Leo and holding American nationality – she is an American model and actress, perhaps best known for playing Kandi in the “Two and a Half Men” comedy TV series.

Early life and education

April grew up wanting to become an actress and had the full support of her family – nothing is known about her mother and father, as she prefers to keep them away from the media’s attention. April hasn’t talked about any of her siblings which is why most of her fans believe her to be an only child. Although born in Vallejo, her family moved to Manteca in California when she was still a child and later enrolled her at East Union High School.

She was and still is very active, and took ballet classes throughout high school – she went on to attend Moorpark College where she studied ballet, French language, and marine biology, and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in 2002.

Career of a model and an actress

As she was noticed by modelling scouts while she was still attending college, April got to launch her career of a model before she got into acting; she signed to a prestigious modelling agency based in Manteca, and has since appeared on several cover pages of popular magazines, and posed for a couple of clothing brands and companies. She went on to study drama with another popular actress – Ivana Chubbuck – although she is completely focused on her acting career today, she is still occasionally modelling and attending photoshoots.

April became somewhat famous thanks to her role of Kandi in the “Two and a Half Men” TV comedy series – it was the first role she auditioned for, and was called three months after to be informed that she had won it. She appeared in a total of 17 episodes – she was part of the main cast during the series’ fourth season, had a recurring role during its third season, and appeared as a guest during the 10th and 12th seasons, all between 2005 and 2015.

April has appeared in numerous other TV series, but the second role she is popular for is of Stacy Barrett in the “Drop Dead Diva” TV series – she had a main role and appeared in 78 episodes from 2009 to 2014.

  • April’s number one hobby is travelling and she has already visited all the American states with an exception of Alaska – she began travelling when she was 17 years old and hasn’t stopped to this day.

1I think Jon Cryer and Charlie Sheen have a lot of chemistry between them.
2I just discovered the Santa Monica flea market, every Sunday. I go weekly. There's a lot of interesting things there.
3I wanted to be a ballerina so badly. You can be seen and take over the spotlight without speaking. I had a fear of speaking in public back then.
4I got to work with Jennifer Tilly, she was amazing. Such, such a smart actress.
5This is my breakfast: Two poached eggs, turkey bacon, and a half avocado. The yolks in a poached egg are alkalizing. Avocados are a great source of fat and vitamin E; great for your skin. It's super light and not too heavy. Sometimes I like a little sweet as well, so I have a cup of plain yogurt with blueberries.
