  • Born in Boston in October 1980, he began to realize his passion for acting after attending the Interlochen Theater Arts Summer Program. After writing, directing, and starring in his first play at the age of 12, it wasn't long before the venom of the acting bug had successfully worked its way into the budding thespian's blood. Devoting his life to acting, Foster dropped out of high school at 16 and prepared to face the challenges that accompany such a career. In 1999, Foster won his breakthrough role in Liberty Heights. Set in 1950s Baltimore, Foster starred as a Jewish high school student whose socially taboo relationship with an African-American classmate (Rebekah Johnson) finds him facing negative pressure from his family and friends. He would go on to appear in many other films, like The Laramie Project, Big Trouble, 30 Days of Night, Alpha Dog, 3:10 to Yuma, Pandorum, Rampart, and more. Foster would also have a succesful TV run, with a role on the popular HBO series Six Feet Under. He played William Burroughs in 2013's Kill Your Darlings and also appeared in Ain't Them Bodies Saints and Lone Survivor the same year. Foster also focused on his stage work, starring in A Streetcar Named Desire in London in 2014.

QUOTES FROM Ben Foster CHARACTERS

Medivh
If love is what you need, you must be willing to travel to the ends of the earth for it.
Draka
Bertrand Zobrist
There is a switch. If you throw it, half the people on earth will die, but if you don't, in 100 years, the human race will be extinct. You are humanity's final hope.
Mars Krupcheck
Safety first.
Medivh
The orcs are not demons. They are flesh and blood, and as such the worry of warriors, not wizards.
William S. Burroughs
Show me the man who is both sober and happy, and I will show you the crinkled anus of a lying asshole.
Trevor Adams
When I'm gone, you'll all have this to ponder, and maybe realize why I did what I did. A little push in front of other kids is a very big deal, particularly when you know it’s gonna happen to you every single day, every single day, every single day, you're almost relieved when it actually happens. You're always waiting, waiting for the next attack. They don’t just hurt kids, they make you hurt yourself.
Trevor Adams
I can't take two more years of this, and the more they call me the mad bomber, the more they're scaring themselves. They don't know what I'm capable of, they don't know what I can do.
Trevor Adams
Some people don't even need a gun to hurt you. They use words or laughter or enjoy watching you bleeding to death. They get off on watching you fighting back the tears, getting a lump in your throat, blushing, wanting to cry.
Police Chief Bud McGee
Why do you bring a video camera to school?
Trevor Adams
The same reason you bring a gun to work. To shoot people.
Matt Axelson
If I die, make sure Cindy knows how much I love her. And that I died here with my brothers, with a full fucking heart.
Marcus Luttrell
You're not going to die.
Matt Axelson
You can die for your Country, but i'm gonna live for mine.
Warren Worthington II
It's what we all want.
Warren Worthington III / Angel
No. It's what you want.
Trevor Adams
kerosene fuse match... boom! ;)
Trevor Adams
Kerosene. Fuse. Match. Boom!
Jake Mazursky
This is just the beginning, bitch. This is lil shooter. You're dead, homes. You hear me, you fucking dwarf! I know where your mother lives I know where your brother lives, I know where your papi lives! You wanna play some games motherfucker!
Charlie Prince
I hate posses.
