Biography

Supporting actor David Eigenberg toiled in bit parts in indie films and on series television before breaking through with a featured recurring role on the cultural phenomenon that was "Sex and the City" (HBO, 1998-2004), playing Steve, the amiable bartender who won the heart of high-strung lawyer Miranda (Cynthia Nixon), despite her best efforts to resist. Raised outside of Chicago, a small role on stage in the Windy City inspired him to move to New York City, where he made his Broadway debut in John Guare's "Six Degrees of Separation" in 1990. Increasing television work and small roles in films such as "A Perfect Murder" (1998) preceded his initial appearance on "Sex and the City," where he first won over the show's writers, then the audience, and at last, Miranda, beginning with its second season. During his five seasons on the hit show, Eigenberg also managed to squeeze in roles on series like "Ed" (NBC, 2000-04), and in major motion pictures, including "The Mothman Prophecies" (2002) opposite Richard Gere. Although the groundbreaking HBO series had come to an end, the ever-popular actor was brought back for the feature film version of "Sex and the City" (2008), and its sequel two years later. Eigenberg continued to make regular appearances on series that included "Castle" (ABC, 2009- ), where he seldom failed to display his boyish charm to disarming effect.
