Biography


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.

By the time he nabbed the chance to appear with his father in an HB Studio's workshop production of Horton Foote's "On Valentine's Day" (1980), Matthew had already fallen heavily for acting that he thus fixed his mind to go professional in show business. Within a year, another role in an Off-Broadway play "Torch Song Trilogy" was successfully secured and so the audience then saw the guy portraying an adopted gay teen of a drag queen there alongside Harvey Fierstein and Joel Crothers. The show surprisingly was a big success, even received positive reviews from New York Times theater critic Mel Gussow which consequently brought him to the attention of Broadway as well as Hollywood. Found himself landed a part in both stage show of "Brighton Beach Memoirs" and film feature of "WarGames" by 1983, the young man amazingly nailed down the parts to obtain a Tony Award for Actor (Featured Role - Play) category in the same year while helped the latter one to gross out over $79 million domestically.
