Lew Temple is an American actor and voice actor.


Temple was born October 2, 1967, in Texas and raised in Louisiana. He attended Rollins College and graduated in 1985. During his time there, he became the school's Baseball MVP in 1982. Temple began his acting career at the prestigious Alley Theatre in Houston, Texas, where he worked alongside a number of artists and acclaimed writer/directors. He moved on to television, where he landed roles in independent and mainstream studio films.

In his personal life, Temple is a leukemia survivor. In 2002, he had to be let go from a movie contract when he dismissed symptoms of a serious illness. He was later diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia and given a forty percent chance of survival. Temple stayed in the hospital for eight months, during which he underwent chemotherapy treatment. Since then, he became an advocate for charity to people suffering from cancer.
