Jesse Bradford Biography:
Jesse Bradford was born in Connecticut and introduced to the entertainment industry through his mother, who is also an actress. He made his first television appearance as an infant in a Q-tip commercial. His first acting role came with a part on the soap opera Guiding Light, followed by a role in the 1984 film Falling In Love starring Robert De Niro.
By now Bradford enjoyed the thrill of acting and wished to pursue it as a hobby, so he signed up with an agency to find him more work. In the next few years, he filmed a supporting role in the TV movie Classified Love with Dinah Manoff and guest starred in the Fox series Tribecca. In 1989, he appeared briefly in the Christmas movie Prancer and auditioned for the role of Kevin in Home Alone. Although he didn't get it, Bradford went on to score major roles in My Blue Heaven and Presumed Innocent (both 1990).
At age 14, Bradford had proved his talent and in 1993, he was rewarded with the lead role in the Steven Soderbergh film, King Of The Hill. Playing the part of Aaron Kurlander with great maturity, Bradford got the attention of Hollywood and was nominated for two major awards. Bradford followed this momentum with another lead role in the film Far From Home: The Adventures Of Yellow Dog. Filmed in Canada, the film gave major worldwide exposure.
After the release of Romeo + Juliet (in which he played Balthazar) in 1996, Bradford took time out from acting to pursue his senior studies and relax. He lists his favourite hobbies as music, snowboarding and playing guitar. In 1997, he graduated from Brien MacMahon High School CT and enrolled in Columbia University in New York.
Bradford returned to acting in A Soldier's Daughter Never Cries (1998), starring Kris Kristofferson and Barbara Hershey. He remembers this as an important time, as he traveled to Paris for filming without a guardian. On his return, Bradford took the lead role in the independent film Speedway Junky. His co-stars included Jonathon Taylor Thomas, Patsy Kensit and Jordan Brower.
In 2000, Bradford was involved in several projects including "Bring It On" and "According To Spencer". He then starred in the Jonathan Frakes sci-fi feature "Clockstoppers" (2002) and played a high school swimmer who has to deal with the consequences of having a one-night stand in "Swimfan," the 2002 teen genre version of "Fatal Attraction."
