Tate Donovan Facts
- He has recalled that when he was 4 years old, his parents had taken him to a movie at the Bergen Theatre in Tenafly in New Jersey, that was like a medieval knights film. When Tate had seen a bunch of the knights on the screen, he had become convinced that he had to do that having realized at the same time that everyone else must crave to do it too thereby getting an inkling of the tough competition there really would be. He has felt grateful that his luck favored him and he could make a career out of acting.
- He is able to play the fiddle as well as the hand-held Irish drum called the bodhran.
- Donovan has stated that the best experiences he has had as an actor have all been at the theatre. Rehearsing, working with writers and directors, and then finally putting up the play in front of a full house has brought him ecstasy.
