Max Minghella biography

Bee Season

Max Minghella

Date of Birth: September 16, 1985

The son of Academy Award-winning director Anthony Minghella (The English Patient ) and Chinese choreographer Carolyn Choa, Max Minghella was born in London, England. He trained with the National Youth Theater in London.

When Max was 13, Matt Damon gave him a Super 8 video camera during the filming of The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999), directed by his father. The boy toyed with it, mimicking scenes his dad was filming, but realized his heart was set on being in front of the camera.

After being an extra in his father's film, Cold Mountain (2003), Max made his feature film debut in Bee Season (2005), playing the son of Richard Gere and Juliette Binoche's characters. A small role in Syriana (2005) as George Clooney's son followed. He played his first lead role in Art School Confidential (2006), as a young man who finds art school more daunting than he'd anticipated. In 2006, he filmed a role in Elvis and Anabelle, starring alongside Blake Lively and Mary Steenburgen. Since then he's appeared in several small budget films, including How to Lose Friends & Alienate People (2008), Brief Interviews With Hideous Men (2009), Agora (2010), About Alex (2014) and Into the Forest (2016).
