Bio

Matt Letscher is an American actor best known for his role as the contemptible Captain Harrison Love in the 1998 fantasy adventure feature film The Mask of Zorro.

He is also known for his starring role as Tom Bradshaw, Carrie and Dorrit's handsome father who is trying to help his two young daughters navigate their daily lives since their mother's death, in the teen drama television series The Carrie Diaries.

After attending the University of Michigan, Letscher made his professional debut at Jeff Daniels' Purple Rose Theatre in Chelsea, MI, in the Daniels-penned farce, The Tropical Pickle.

This led directly to being cast in Turner Films' Civil War epic, Gettysburg, after he was seen by director Ron Maxwell.

Living in Los Angeles since 1993, Letscher has steadily built an extensive and diverse resume covering screen and stage. Films include Straight-Jacket, Identity, Gods and Generals, Madison, Supersucker, Lovelife, The Mask of Zorro and Alan Ball's Nothing is Private, opposite Toni Colette.

Letscher's television work includes series regular roles on Living in Captivity, Almost Perfect and Eli Stone, as well as starring roles in King of Texas, The Beach Boys: An America Family and Jackie, Ethel, and Joan: Women of Camelot.

He also has had recurring roles on Scandal (known in South Africa as The Fixer), Bent, The New Adventures of Old Christine, The West Wing, Joey, NYPD Blue, Criminal Minds, Brothers & Sisters and Entourage.

On stage, Letscher has appeared on Broadway in The Rivals, at Lincoln Center and Neil Simon's Proposals. He worked again with the Purple Rose Theater, this time as a playwright and director on the premiere of his farce, Sea of Fools.

He has also appeared in the South Coast Repertoire production, In The Garden.
