Matt Craven


B: November 10, 1956 in Port Colborne, Ontario

Matt Craven, who started out in life as Matthew John Crnkovich, worked at a number of jobs before turning to acting. He tried electrical maintenance, and was a lineman for the Canadian National Railway in western Canada. In 1975, after spontaneously auditioning and subsequently landing the role of Jonathon Harker in the Niagara Falls Music Theatre`s production of Dracula, he knew that all he wanted to do was act. When the production ended he moved to Toronto to begin to work on building a career and landed a supporting role in the 1979 comedy, Meatballs. He went on to a starring role in the short film Bravery in the Field which was nominated for an Academy Award. Craven moved to New York City in 1982 and made his off-Broadway debut in the hit play Blue Window. The rest, as they say, is history.
