The following biography was taken from the official NBC site for The Others. Pictures and links were added, and other annotations are made in brackets, [ ].
Gabriel Macht was born in the Bronx and raised in Westchester, New York, until he was 5, when his father relocated the family to Los Angeles. [His father is actor Stephen Macht, who - among many film and television credits - had recurring roles on both The Practice and Melrose Place.]
Gabriel Macht made his acting debut as a child in the feature film "Why Would I Lie?" starring Treat Williams. Later, he attended the noted Carnegie Mellon School of Drama in Pittsburgh, where he received a bachelor of fine arts degree in drama. [This is the "oldest degree-granting drama program in the United States..."]
After graduation, he took off for Sardinia and toured Europe for a few months, and on his first day after returning stateside, he was cast in the television movie "Follow the River" with Sheryl Lee. He then went to the Arena Stage in Washington, D.C. to appear in "What the Butler Saw" [1994-1995 Season] before heading to New York where he guest-starred in episodes of "Spin City" and "Sex and the City" (as Barkley the Modelizer). While there, he appeared off-Broadway as Elvis Presley (aka "The Visitor") in comedian Steve Martin's  production of "Picasso at the Lapin Agile."
A self-described "character actor," Macht's other feature credits are the acclaimed independent films "The Adventures of Sebastian Cole," and the upcoming "101 Ways" and "The Bookie's Lament," the latter of which concerns Irish gangsters in Hell's Kitchen during the 1970s and involves him as star and producer. Among his other credits are the television movie "Guilty Until Proven Innocent" and the stage production of "La Ronde" (directed by Joanne Woodward) at the Williamstown Theater Festival. He remains active in theater via his association with the avante-garde Mad Dog Theater Company in New York, which produced the play "To Whom It May Concern" at the Belgrade International Theatre Festival. [BITEF, September 1997]
On his own time, Macht enjoys playing billiards, whitewater rafting, snowboarding, traveling (especially to Hawaii), attending movies, spending time with his family, and is a "huge" New York Yankee fan who attended World Series games during the 1996, 1998 and 1999 championship seasons ("I was among those swarming on the field after the last game of the Series last year!"). [The Yankees spring-train in beautiful sunny and stormy Tampa, Florida. The site for their home-away-from-home is Legends Field.] His birthday is January 22. [He was born in 1972.]
