Matthew Goode Biography

Matthew Goode

Date of Birth: April 3, 1976

Hailing from Exetor, Devon, England, Matthew Goode studied drama and theater arts at Birmingham University, then studied classical theater at London's Webber Douglas Academy of Performing Arts. He began his acting career on stage in productions such as Shakespeare's The Tempest and Lorca's Blood Wedding. His television debut was as Casper in the ABC-TV movie Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister (2002), a retelling of the Cinderella story from the viewpoint of one of the stepsisters. Next, he had to learn his lines in Spanish for the feature film South of Granada (2003), which made its debut at the Cannes Film Festival and was released theatrically in Spain.

Goode landed a starring role in his first big budget Hollywood release, Chasing Liberty(2004). In it, he played Ben Calder, Mandy Moore's love interest. He has since appeared in Woody Allen's Match Point (2006) and played the coveted role of Adrian Veidt/Ozymandias in the highly anticipated blockbuster Watchmen (2009). More recently, he starred in the 2014 drama Belle.
