Ben Bodé was born in Livermore, California, in the very late 60’s.
The son of an army doctor, he had a somewhat nomadic upbringing, living at times in Colorado, Florida, North Carolina and Germany, amongst others.
He began his training to be an actor at Robert E Lee High School in San Antonio, Texas, where his talent and enthusiasm for acting were first recognised and nurtured.
He then went on to complete the four year programme at the prestigious Juilliard School in New York City.
After leaving Juilliard, he spent four years in New York, doing mostly theatre, before moving to Los Angeles to pursue more television and film work.
He is married, and has one daughter.
