Charlie Koznick stars in NBC's "Coastal Dreams" as Christian.
Koznick was born and raised in the great state of Minnesota, where alpine ski racing was a large part of his life growing up. His only sister is a three- time Olympian in women's slalom and giant slalom events. Koznick attended St. Thomas Military Academy High School. By the time he graduated, he knew that continuing to ski race was not in the cards for him.
Koznick went on to attend the University of San Diego. He graduated with a degree in finance and a minor in philosophy. It wasn't until his senior year that he even thought about the acting profession. On a random weekend trip up to Los Angeles from San Diego, Koznick caught the acting bug and hasn't been able to shake it since.
Koznick had a very successful start to his career. Last season he had a recurring role on NBC's "Las Vegas," playing Dean Cain's younger brother. Some of his other credits include recurring roles on "Veronica Mars" and "Joan of Arcadia." Koznick also has guest starred on "CSI: NY" and "The District."
