Biography


One of the Hollywood's greatest assets whose dedication in performing arts are visible enough to see if looking through his consistently outstanding enactments that often leave such deep impression to everyone who watches them, Edward Harrison Norton certainly is one remarkable thespian hard to miss of. The oldest son of a teacher and an environmental lawyer who formerly was a federal prosecutor under the Carter administration, Edward in fact has long nurtured his love for acting through extensive trainings also performances since he was still a mere little child. Born on August 18, 1969 in Boston, Massachusetts but grew up in Columbia, Maryland, he initially planted an interest in the field at the age of 5 upon watching his babysitter, Betsy True, performing onstage in "If I Were a Princess" to then eagerly develop his skills at Columbia School for Theatrical Arts where he later encountered his stage debut in "Annie Get Your Gun" by age eight.

As the growing fondness gradually rooted within him, Edward's efforts in compiling either acting knowledge or experience subsequently got heavier when he attended Yale University after finishing his study at Wilde Lake High School in 1987. Not only joined many theater classes without abandoning his history major, the guy also enthusiastically involved himself in several productions of its theatrical society, including those of "A Midsummer Night's Dream", "Don't Drink the Water", plus "The Cherry Orchard." However, these all apparently did not yet quench his thirst to learn more about performing for he tirelessly continued the endeavor in New York at Terry Schreiber Studio following his graduation from Yale by 1991 though he at that time had already managed to appear in handful of off-off Broadway plays like "Italian American Reconciliation" and "Lovers."
