John Ross Ewing Josh Henderson
John Ross Ewing is the ambitious son of JR and Sue Ellen Ewing. A chip off the old block, John Ross is determined to strike it rich in the oil industry and prove himself capable of stepping into his father’s shoes. Growing up, John Ross was enticed by promises that the Ewing Oil Empire would one day be his. With his parents feuding and using him to manipulate each other, John Ross lacked a stable childhood and divided his formative years between Dallas, Europe and boarding school. Even though he enjoyed the same privileges of growing up a Ewing as his cousin Christopher, he exploited his wealth and family’s power to get ahead with little personal effort, giving him a reputation of being a spoiled rich kid. John Ross never felt the love and emotional support he longed to receive from his parents growing up, so he turned to his compassionate and patient friend Elena who was always seeing the best in him. Now as an adult with a lot to prove, John Ross is determined to impress his father, despite their lack of a relationship, and he has his eyes set on SouthFork and the girl he’s loved since childhood, Elena.
