Goode was raised in the village of Clyst St. Mary and later, honed his acting skills at Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art in London. In 2002, Matthew Goode began his acting career with ABC movie ‘Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister’. But it was the 2004 rom-com, ‘Chasing Liberty’ that made him a familiar face.

With notable roles in movies like ‘Match Point’ (2005), ‘My Family and Other Animals’ (2005), ‘Imagine Me and You’ (2006), ‘Brideshead Revisited’ (2008) and ‘Leap Year’ (2010), along with ‘The Crown‘, ‘Downton Abbey‘ and ‘The Good Wife’ in television, Goode has become one of the most prolific actors working on both sides of the Atlantic.

‘Kingsman: The Great Game’ is a prequel to the ‘Kingsman movie franchise.’ The plot unfolds in the backdrop of post World War 2 Europe.

According to reports, ‘The Kingsman’ origin story explores the roots of the Kingsman organization from the early 1900s to the end of World War II.

Karl Gajdusek, who wrote the screenplay for ‘Oblivion’, scripts ‘The Great Game,’ while Vaughn’s regular producers Adam Bohling and David Reid step in their usual roles.
