Matt Damon is the child of stockbroker Kent Telfer Damon, and an early childhood education professor, Nancy Carlsson-Page. Growing up, Damon became fast friends with his distant cousin, future actor, director and screenwriter Ben Affleck. It was together with Affleck that Matt Damon first began to dabble in acting, appearing in several high school productions alongside him, and listing those early roles as one of the most important influences on his road to professional acting – although Damon has been quoted saying that their drama teacher always seemed to trust Affleck more in the end, giving him “the biggest roles and longest speeches.”

Whatever the case, Matt Damon made his film debut early, appearing in the 1988 romantic comedy “Mystic Pizza” when he was just 18. Throughout his university years – spent in Harvard pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree – Damon continued to feature in television productions and films. Risking his health to lose 40 pounds in a hundred days, Matt Damon was noted for his dedication and impressive performance in the 1996 drama “Courage Under Fire”, in which he appeared alongside Denzel Washington and Lou Diamond Phillips. The next year Matt would finally find success in what is widely considered his breakout role, as the lead actor in the drama “Good Will Hunting”. Directed by Gus Van Sant and co-written by Damon and Ben Affleck, the film saw Damon star alongside Robin Williams in a film that won Damon his only Academy Award to date – for “Best Screenplay”, an award he shared with Affleck. Since then, Damon has gone on to a number of commercially successful and critically acclaimed appearances, including featuring alongside George Clooney and Brad Pitt in Steven Soderbergh’s “Ocean’s” trilogy, and taking the lead role in the “Bourne” trilogy.
