Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Eric Mabius' Hollywood career took him from the art house to the house of high fashion in one seamless and successful journey. As a star on the Golden Globe-winning series "Ugly Betty" (ABC, 2006) Mabius delighted fans with his portrayal of Daniel Meade, the Editor-in-Chief of a fictional fashion magazine, and boss to the unfortunately nicknamed title character, superbly played by America Ferrara. It would not be the first time Mabius had appeared in an underdog-does-good project. He was the dreamboat rocker whom Heather Matarazzo had an adolescent crush on in "Welcome to the Dollhouse" (1995), the movie that propelled Mabius' career into high gear before hitting mainstream success on "Betty."

Notes

Mabius was a member of the US Junior National Luge Team

"'[Welcome to the] Dollhouse' might have made lots of money, but we got paid shit. When I went to Sundance, I stayed in this cruddy, skid-row motel room. I went to parties at night just so I could get fed. And I couldn't have been happier" --Mabius on the financial rewards of independent film, quoted in MOVIELINE, March 1997
