Mathieu Jacob Silverman was born in February 2006 in New York City to Jenifer, a Plastic Surgery Physician Assistant and Michael, a neuroscientist. He is the youngest of two children. His love of acting began at age ten after reluctantly auditioning for the school play and winning the lead comedic role. Then, catching the bug, he began taking acting lessons at The Barrow Acting School in Times Square and auditioning for more professional opportunities. He received the Young Entertainer Award for Best Actor in a Short Film for his debut role as Ely in Still Harlem.
Mathieu has been taking flying lessons since he was 13 and has already accrued enough hours for his pilot's license when he reaches 16. In addition, he enjoys playing tennis, riding one-wheels, skiing, cooking and international travel. Mathieu plays the piano in his school's jazz band, where his favorite subjects are science and math. When not working, he enjoys being a big brother to his Bernese Mountain Dog Bailey, walking in Central Park, and playing Minecraft with his older sister Sydney.
