Coming from a common family consisting of a geologist, a nurse, and four other children with no theatrical background at all, Matthew William Goode really had never imagined he would undergo a profession as an actor. "I don't know where the thespian genes came from," he said. "Probably being the youngest and fighting for attention is something to do with it." Born on April 3, 1978 in Exeter, Devon, England, he then provided himself with knowledge and skills in acting through studying drama at University of Birmingham and classical theater at London's Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art before began to perform in several stage productions, such as "The Tempest" and "Blood Wedding."
