Lucas Hedges Biography

Lucas Hedges is an actor, and the son of filmmaker Peter Hedges. He studied theater at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. As a child, Hedges made his feature film debut as an extra in his father's film Dan in Real Life. His line in the film was cut in post-production. He starred in a middle-school play production, when the casting director for Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom was in the audience and eventually cast Hedges in the film, his first role, as Redford. He later appeared in Arthur Newman, Jason Reitman's Labor Day and Terry Gilliam's film The Zero Theorem. In 2014, Hedges made a cameo in Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel and appeared in Michael Cuesta's Kill the Messenger, for which he received positive reviews.

In April 2015, Hedges joined the cast of Kenneth Lonergan's third feature film, Manchester by the Sea. In it, he plays Patrick Chandler, a 16-year-old dealing with the recent death of his father and who is left in the care of his unwilling and troubled uncle. The film had its world premiere on January 23, 2016, at the Sundance Film Festival, where Hedges received rave reviews. For his performance, Hedges has been nominated for the Independent Spirit Award for Best Supporting Male, Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role and Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor, making him the eighth-youngest actor ever to be nominated in the latter category.

On January 31, 2017, Hedges made his stage debut as the lead in the Trip Cullman-directed off-Broadway play Yen, by playwright Anna Jordan. The play ran from February 19 until March 4 at the Lucille Lortel Theatre. For his performance, Hedges received rave reviews and was nominated for the Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Play and won the Theatre World Award for Outstanding Off-Broadway Debut Performance. He also had supporting roles in the coming-of-age film Lady Bird and the drama film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

In 2018, Hedges played the lead roles of a teenager forced into a gay conversion therapy program in Boy Erased and a drug addict in Ben Is Back, both drama films. The latter was written and directed by his father, and the former earned him a nomination for the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Drama. Hedges also made his Broadway debut in a revival of Lonergan's drama The Waverly Gallery.

In 2020, Hedges appeared in the miniseries Home Movie: The Princess Bride for Quibi to raise money for World Central Kitchen. Also that year, he starred alongside Michelle Pfeiffer in the comedy French Exit, and was part of the ensemble cast of Steven Soderbergh's comedy film Let Them All Talk.
