Gabriel Macht              

Actor, Best Known for His Role on USA's Hit Series "Suits"

American actor Gabriel Macht has 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. He was briefly a child actor, and at just 8-years-old Macht was nominated for the Best Young Motion Picture Actor Award for his performance in the movie Why Would I Lie? in 1980. Macht withdrew from show business but returned with steely resolve as an adult actor after attending the Carnegie Mellon College of Fine Arts, usually being cast as the pretty boy with heart.

Macht moved from television movies like The Audrey Hepburn Story (ABC, 2000) in which he effectively played no less than movie legend William Holden, to a lead role in the sci-fi drama, "The Others" (NBC, 2000). Macht's standout work in highly anticipated films with big name clout, as in American Outlaws (2001), Behind Enemy Lines (2001) and The Recruit (2003) earned him favorable notices. Macht drew much attention in A Love Song for Bobby Long (2004), where he played troubled writer Lawson Pines across John Travolta. The actor eased through both Robert De Niro's The Good Shepherd (2006) and the comedy Because I Said So (2007) before scoring his biggest role then to date as the action lead in the comic book-turned-film The Spirit (2008) before navigating sub-zero temperatures in the action thriller, Whiteout (2009).

In 2011, Macht transitioned into television stardom as the star of the cable hit legal drama "Suits" (USA 2011-2019) where he played Harvey Specter. 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 screen.

Macht married Australian-born actress Jacinda Barrett in 2004. The couple had their first child, a girl, Satine Anais Geraldine Macht, in August of 2007, and then a son, Luca Macht, in 2014.
