Gabriel Ebert — Nominee for Best Performance by a Featured Actor in a Musical

Show:
Matilda

Role:
Mr. Wormwood, Matilda's sleazy, slimy and sordid car salesman of a dad who wishes his daughter would watch the "telly" instead of wasting her energy on reading books.

Bio Brief:
Gabriel Ebert made his Broadway debut as an understudy in Red and went on to appear in Brief Encounter. A Juilliard grad, he appeared off-Broadway in Suicide, Incorporated and won an Obie Award for 4000 Miles.

Tony History:
This is Ebert's first Tony nomination.

Fun Fact:
From humble beginnings, Ebert is the son of a minister and is a bit of a mountain man. He grew up on a dirt road in the mountains of Colorado in house with well water and a wood stove.

Quotable Quote:
"I'm just trying to keep up, really. These kids can dance and sing-some of them have more Broadway credits than I do. They're stars! I'm used to doing a play and walking away at the end of the day, but coming out to a stage door full of young children who are eager to see you—it's a whole new experience for me." — Ebert in an interview with Broadway.com, 4/11
