Well-trained onstage since young age to then consistently able to deliver engaging performances in various projects he has taken besides easily noticeable for his boyish look, Matthew Broderick surely is one gifted actor hard to be missed of. Never a stranger to the performing arts, particularly theatre, based on the fact that he is the son of film also stage actor James Broderick and playwright Patricia Biow, Matthew was born the youngest of the couple's three children on March 21, 1962 in New York City, New York, USA. Despite this background, however, the boy originally did not pay much notice on the field as he grew up and entered Manhattan's Walden School since his attention during that time was rather focused on athletic matters, especially football and soccer. It was when he accidentally experienced a knee injury in the middle of his study that the dark-haired teen finally began to try acting, later taking parts in the institution's theatrical presentations of "A Doll's House" and "The Threepenny Opera" among others.
