Biography

From classical stage training to period television dramas, British actor Matthew Goode started out on that well-traveled path to an international film career, but after turning out supporting performances that were much more memorable than warranted, he was bumped up to star status in short order. He earned a significant female following for his role as the charming secret service agent and love object of the president's teen daughter (Mandy Moore) in "Chasing Liberty" (2004), and critical kudos for his posh performance in the acclaimed Woody Allen film, "Match Point" (2005). Goode went on to surprise audiences with his ensemble role in the comic book adaptation "Watchmen" (2009) as the dapper Ozymandias, and while the period dramas regularly invited the actor back into their worlds, he revealed himself to be a versatile, charming leading man known for his off-the-cuff sense of humor.
