Owen is Mark Fowler's Welsh friend who returns to Albert Square with Mark after they worked together on a farm in Wales. He is first seen sleeping rough in the Fowlers' doorway with Mark, waiting for the family to wake up and let them in. Owen's most notable characteristics are his obsession with the band Pink Floyd, his 'out there' conversations (particularly about marrows) suggesting he is permanently stoned, and the fact that he has body odour.
Owen and Mark are soon hounded out of Albert Square by Tony Carpenter, after he discovers his 11-year-old daughter Cassie smoking cannabis, which she stole from them. They leave in a hurry on Owen's motorbike and Owen is never seen again.
