He graduated from Brasenose College, Oxford, earning a MA in English Literature and was a member of the OUDS and Oxford Revue. He had planned to continue doctoral studies but was not able to secure a grant.

Yeoman currently plays Wayne Rigsby in The Mentalist. He has starred in every episode, alongside Simon Baker, Robin Tunney and Tim Kang. He also starred in ChromeSkull: Laid to Rest 2. In 2013 it was confirmed that Yeoman and co star Amanda Righetti were leaving The Mentalist after season 6. 
Yeoman was previously married to actress Lucy Davis, from December 2006 to October 2011.  His first marriage took place at St Paul's Cathedral, London.

On September 7, 2013, Owen married his jewelry designer girlfriend, Gigi Yallouz at a private estate in Malibu, California.
