Early Life

Smith studied at Northampton School for Boys, and he played on youth football teams for Nottingham Forest, Northampton Town, and Leicester City. Matt gave up football due to spondylolysis caused by a back injury. His cousin Leigh Killick taught drama at Northampton and signed Smith up for school plays without his consent.

Smith studied Creative Writing and Drama at Norwich's University of East Anglia and graduated in 2005. As a member of the National Youth Theatre, he appeared in "Murder in the Cathedral" and "The Master and Margarita," which caught the attention of an agent and led to his first professional acting jobs, the plays "On the Shore of the Wide World" and "Fresh Kills." During his final year at University of East Anglia, Matt sought an agreement with the school that would let him graduate without attending class. He told "London Notes" in 2007, "I said to them, I want to be an actor so you've got to let me go and do this. I didn't go to any more lectures, but they let me graduate. I would get the reading list and do my work and send it back to them."


Smith made his television debut as Jim Taylor in the 2006 BBC One movie "The Ruby in the Smoke," and he reprised his role in 2007's "The Shadow in the North." That year he also starred as Danny Foster on the BBC Two drama "Party Animals" and guest-starred on "Secret Diary of a Call Girl" and "The Street."

From 2010 to 2014, Smith starred as the Eleventh Doctor on the BBC One science-fiction series "Doctor Who," making him the youngest actor to play the Doctor. Matt appeared in 54 episodes of the series, and he played the Eleventh Doctor in a 2010 episode of "The Sarah Jane Adventures" and the 2013 TV movie "An Adventure in Space and Time." Smith appeared in the films "Christopher and His Kind" (2011), "Bert and Dickie" (2012), and "Lost River" (2014), then he played Alex / Skynet / The T-5000 in 2015's "Terminator Genisys," which grossed $440.6 million at the box office.
