Born under two pounds and a few months early he has been overcoming the odds ever since.
Brian trained at The Actors Workshop in Laguna for 5 years before he broke through landing the lead role in Return to the Blue Lagoonopposite Milla Jovovich. From there he would star in the Stephen King original screenplay Sleepwalkers, directed by Mick Garris.
Krause landed his first role in 1989 as a student in the TV series TV 101.
He then starred in the made-for-TV-movie Match Point, the CBS Schoolbreak Special "American Eyes", and An American Summer, before landing his first major role as Richard Lestrange in the film Return to the Blue Lagoon (1991).
He was a co-star in the Bandit series prior to his most notable role of Leo Wyatt, in The WB Network series Charmed (1998–2006).
But it wasn’t until the mid ’90s when landing a role as a possible recurring role on a unknown Aaron Spelling show that he would gain the most recognition as the beloved ‘Leo’ in the television show Charmed.
