Bennett Joseph Savage was born on September 13th, 1980, in Chicago, Illinois. Ben, who grew up in a Jewish home with two brothers, began his career in the entertainment industry at a young age. His siblings were also in the entertainment business. Fred Savage, his older brother, is an actor and director, and Kala Savage, his older sister, is an actress and musician.
Ben Savage began performing in films and other projects when he was nine years old. His first role was opposite his older brother in “Little Monsters,” and he returned three years later in “Big Girls Don’t Cry… They Get Even.” He then went on to star in the 1994 picture “Clifford.” Around this time, he was also acting in theatre shows and guest-starring in “The Wonder Years” with his older brother Fred.
Savage had been in key speaking roles on television shows since 1988, but it wasn’t until his lead role in “Boy Meets World” that he truly broke through. While portraying Cory Mattews on TV from 1993 to 2003, Ben became a household name.
During this time, he also found time to appear in TV movies like “She Woke Up.” In the same year that “Boy Meets World” concluded, Savage starred in “Wild Palms,” earning critical acclaim for his portrayal of a vicious killer. His career froze for the following five years until he returned to the stage in “Unexpected Tenderness,” for which he won an Ovation Award.
In 2002, he returned to cinematic work with “Swimming Upstream.” He subsequently took a three-year break from acting, but he did manage to fit in roles in the sitcom “Still Standing” and the feature film “Car Babes.” During this time, he also played himself in Disney’s “Phil of the Future.” In 2006, he joined the cast of “Palo Alto,” which received critical praise. He then went on to star in shows like “Chuck,” “Without a Trace,” “Bones,” “Shake It Up,” and “Girl Meets World.” On two instances, Savage has played the younger version of actress Mandy Patinkin. These appearances were made on shows including “Criminal Minds” and “Homeland,” the latter of which premiered in 2020. In 2020, he also appeared in the TV movie “Love, Lights, Hanukkah!”
In 2011, Savage was said to be selling his West Hollywood home for $1.6 million. The house is 2,350 square feet and contains three bedrooms. In 2004, Ben spent $1.05 million for this house, indicating that he expected a substantial profit in seven years. Dark oak floors and a 1,000-square-foot rooftop deck are additional noteworthy.
Ben’s childhood home in Glencoe, California (which he shared with Fred Savage) was rumoured to be for sale in 2018.
