Matthew Goode inherited his acting lineage from mother, who was an amateur theater actor by passion and a nurse by profession. 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. The movie earned him the first nomination when he was shortlisted for the Teen Choice Awards for Male Breakout Star.
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. At this point, the question that might be circling your mind is what is the next Matthew Goode movie and TV show? Well, the good news is that we have a clear answer to that question. Here’s the list of upcoming Matthew Goode films/TV shows scheduled to release in 2019 and 2020. We can only hope that the latest Matthew Goode movies would be as good as some of his recent ones.
