Christian Kane was born in Dallas, Texas. Christian and his family moved around a lot throughout the South before settling down in Norman, Oklahoma. Christian attended the University of Oklahoma where he had plans to major in Art History. However, Christian wanted to try out acting, so he took his truck and his life savings of a few hundred dollars and headed to Hollywood. Christian had many jobs, including mail-room clerk for a talent agency. His big break came when he played Ryan "Flyboy" Legget, the male lead, in a new show called Fame L.A. (1997) based on the hit movie and 80s TV show. Christian's next role was on the short-lived Aaron Spelling's Rescue 77 (1999), where he played Wick Lobo a.k.a. "Cowboy" because of his radical application of "gutter" medicine. Christian was soon cast as a production assistant in Edtv (1999) starring Woody Harrelson as well as a made-for-TV Western called Crossfire Trail (2001) with Tom Selleck.

Kane starred in 50 to 1 (2014), along side Skeet Ulrich and William Devane. Kane starred in The Librarians (2013) on TNT, which was produced by Dean Devlin who also produced "Leverage". His portrayal of Jake Stone earned him a nomination for Best Supporting Actor on Television with the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror.

He's also an avid supporter of the Clayne Crawford Foundation.
