Though his Hollywood breakthrough may have come with his role as Mariah Carey's ill-fated love interest in the pop singer's film debut Glitter (2000), handsome and sometime-male model Max Beesley was no stranger to the limelight. A well-versed musician who has toured with the likes of George Michael and taken the stage with Jamiroquai, Beesley turned to acting in the latter '90s to find new challenges in life.Born Maxton Gig Beesley Jr. in Burnage, England, in 1971, to drummer Maxton Beesley and jazz singer Chris Marlowe, the hyperactive youngster took to music from early childhood, picking up on numerous instruments and developing his vocal chords. Later obtaining official musical training at Chethams School of Music in Manchester and London's Guildhall School of Music, Beesley was soon hitting the road with his father and learning the trade. It was while watching Martin Scorsese's Raging Bull with his father one day that Beesley Jr. had his thespian epiphany, and before long it was off to New York to take a Method acting course. Considering his first role in The History of Tom Jones, a Foundling (1997) an apprenticeship during which he refined his skills, the avid football (read: soccer) fan followed up with a notably more prominent role two years later in The Match. Utilizing his musical roots for his next role in Five Seconds to Spare (1999), Beesley also appeared in It Was an Accident (2000) before romancing pop diva Carey in Glitter. An energetic performer who's hyperactivity almost reached controlled substance-fueled levels, the humble and level-headed actor recently discovered Buddhism as a means of focus, and has since become a devout follower of the faith. Taking a peek into his love life, Beesley has been romantically linked to Melanie Brown (aka "Scary Spice") of the Spice Girls.
