The son of Irish immigrants, Donal
Logue was born in Ottawa, Canada, on 27 February
1966. Raised in the United States, Logue enrolled
to Harvard where he studied history. Although Logue
had long desire to be a writer, a period of time
at the British American Drama Academy in London
strengthened his interest in acting.
Logue got his first breakthrough in the early '90s,
when he won a small role in Sneakers (1992).
He then took supporting roles in films ranging from
Little Women (1994)
to Diabolique (1996).
In 1999, Logue turned in a scene-stealing performance
as a slob L.A. limo driver with undeveloped acting
ambitions in The Big Tease. High appreciation finally
came his way the next year, when he starred in The
Tao of Steve. A cynical comedy about a late twenty
slacker whose dating philosophy allows him to win
over the ladies. The film was a huge success at
the 2000 Sundance Festival, where Logue was awarded
a Special Jury Prize for Outstanding Performance.
The appreciation continued in the following years
when Logue appeared in no less than six films, including
the summer blockbuster The Patriot (2000).
