Nominated for three Golden Globes and an Emmy, Zach Braff takes on Hollywood with his brilliant acting skills, artistic direction and ingenious productions. This acclaimed hunk is heavily armed with good looks and magnetism. And although he suffers from a variety of anxiety orders, he translates his angst beautifully in the silver screen. Ultimately, he became part of the popular television series Scrubs
Born on April 6, 1975 in South Orange, New Jersey, Zach Braff attended Columbia High School where he was exposed to the school’s television station, and graduated from Northwestern University with a degree in film. As a child, he was diagnosed with an obsessive-compulsive disorder but that did not stop him from pursuing his dreams of becoming a filmmaker. He started his career in stage productions of Shakespeare’s Macbeth
and Twelfth Night,
as well as Woody Allen’s movie Manhattan Murder Mystery
. Eventually, he ventured into writing, directing and producing such movies like Garden State
and Open Hearts
. As an actor, his credits included Broken Hearts Club, Blue Moon, Chicken Little, The Last Kiss
and The Ex
to name a few.
Playing John “J.D.” Dorian on the sitcom Scrubs
allows Braff to portray the protagonist of the show. Geeky with an intriguing fondness to women, he becomes an interesting feature of the show the viewers just can’t get enough of.
