Lifetime Network and Soap Opera Star Nathan Owens Takes On a New Role On The CW

Nathan Owens has been in the public eye as a model, host, and actor for nearly a decade and a half, and he’s become a recognizable face on both daytime and primetime television. Whether you’ve noticed Owens in his wildly successful campaign for Ralph Lauren’s Big Pony fragrance or Days of Our Lives fans are especially familiar with Nathan Owens, who first grew to fame on the small screen playing Cameron Davis on the soap from 2012-2013.

The CW recently announced that Nathan Owens is about to take on a new role – he’ll be a recurring character on season 2 of Batwoman, alongside Leah Gibson (of Jessica Jones), Shivaani Ghai, and Javicia Leslie.

Batwoman debuted on the CW in 2019. Developed by Caroline Dries (known for her work on Smallville, Melrose Place, and The Vampire Diaries), Batwoman is set in the world of Gotham, three years after the disappearance of Batman. The superhero’s cousin, Kate Kane, sets out to triumph over her demons, all while working to serve the city as a symbol of hope.

Based on characters created for DC Comics, Batwoman has been hailed by critics for pushing the envelope on traditional comic book characters by creating diverse, multi-faceted roles. In season 2, Nathan Owens will play Ocean, a calm and collected zen gardener with a tough and complicated past. Ocean moves to Gotham for a new beginning and is known for his history as a loyal fighter and soldier.

While his part in Batwoman is a new role for Nathan Owens, fans may find some aspects of his new storyline reminiscent of his last role. Ocean’s story isn’t too far off from Owens’ role in Devious Maids – he played a handsome veteran who was working to reintegrate to stateside life after time abroad. While the jury is still out on exactly how Ocean’s role will play out throughout season 2, fans suspect that Owens’ character may become a significant figure in the life of Ryan Wilder (played by Leslie), Gotham’s new Batwoman.

Batwoman has been praised for creating a diverse, realistic Gotham, with characters mirror the diversity seen across the United States. Race, religious backgrounds, sexual orientation, and gender are all at the forefront of the Batwoman world.
