Who is Oliver Platt? Wiki, Bio, Age
Oliver Platt was born on January 12th, 1960, in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. That makes him 59 years of age. He was born to mother, Sheila Maynard, a social worker and father, Nicholas Platt a career diplomat. His father served as an ambassador to Pakistan, Zambia, Philippines, and many other countries. This made Oliver move to several countries at a young age. He has an older brother, Adam Platt and a younger one called Nicholas Platt Jr. The family only stayed in Canada for three months after Oliver was born and moved back to the USA.
Oliver Platt’s family moved back to the USA, and his father worked within the country’s foreign office for the next three years. After the third year, he was deployed to Taiwan for a short stint and then again to China for a long stay. It’s surprising how Oliver went to over ten different schools in his schooling life. It was a very difficult part of his life, but it came with immense exposure. The family never lost touch of their American roots as they kept going back to attend sporting events.
Oliver Platt managed to clear his tenth grade in Colorado Rock Mountain boarding school. After high school, he joined Tufts University in Boston where he graduated in 1983 with a Bachelor of Arts in Drama. During his childhood days, Oliver says one event in his life aroused the acting genius in him. In one of the trips back to Washington with his family, they attended a performance by Morgan Freeman in the late 1960s. The show was hosted by the Kennedy Center in Washington. In those days Morgan Freeman was a young lad who gave a stunning stand-alone show. That left a mark on Oliver’s life and his view about acting.
After his University days, Oliver started hustling in the theatres of Boston and Massachusetts trying to get some acting roles. Oliver Platt says this was one of his best training grounds as he worked with such names as Shakespeare and Company in Massachusetts, which toured schools. He got to meet his agent while working at the Manhattan Punchline Theatre. Bill Murray recommended him to Director Jonathan Demme who featured Oliver in “Married to the Mob” in 1988. Oliver says this was his breakthrough moment.
From then on Oliver has featured in about sixty movies as a key actor. He has appeared in popular movies as “Beethoven” in 1992, as Harvey, “The Three Musketeers” in 1993, as Porthos, “Don’t Say a Word” in 2001, as Dr. Louis Sachs, Professor Marston and the Wonder Women in 2017, as Max Gaines, and many more films.
Oliver has also appeared in over twenty different TV shows across the years, such as, “The Equalizer”, in 1987, as Norm Jameson, “Queens Supreme”, from 2003 to 2007, as Judge Jack Moran, and currently, he is featuring on Chicago Med from 2015 to-date as Dr. Daniel Charles.
