A Native of Orange County, California, Coby Bell came to the cast of “Third Watch” from his role as Patrick Owen on the drama series “L.A. Doctors.”

During downtime, Bell enjoys playing basketball and tennis. He also sings and plays keyboard in a band. In addition, Bell likes to volunteer as a Big Brother.
