Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Handsome and skilled without any apparent effort, American actor Gabriel Macht, assembled an impressive string of reviews for work in film and theater and on television, often surpassing in quality the project in which he appeared. Along a typical road to stardom, Macht rode decidingly on the path adjacent and on his own clock. Briefly a child actor, Macht withdrew from show business but returned with steely resolve as an adult actor, usually being cast as the pretty boy with heart.

Although he had the chops as a child, Macht wisely opted out of the business to age gracefully into a successful, marketable and talented adult actor who quickly became a force to reckon with on the big screen.
