Thomas Mapother IV

By
Managing Real Estate Broker with Fathom Realty PB00068179

Thomas Mapother IV was born in Syracuse, New York back in 1962 to Thomas and Mary.  He spent his childhood in Canada before moving to Beacon Hill, Ottawa where he attended the Robert Hopkins Public School.  He returned to the United States when he was in the sixth grade.  He attended the St. Francis Seminary in Cincinnati, Ohio. The family moved again and he graduated from Glen Ridge High School in Glen Ridge, New Jersey.

When he was 18, he moved to New York City to pursue an acting career.  That didn’t work out so he moved to Los Angeles to try out for a television role.  He first landed some minor roles but his first lead was in 1985.  If I named the films you would know who I’m writing about immediately, so I’m avoiding that.  He has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.  He has three Golden Globe Awards and three nomination for Academy Awards. 

While you may not recognize Thomas Mapother would you know him if I added Thomas Cruise Mapother or as he is familiar to us Tom Cruise?

Good morning again, James. If you hadn't told me, I'd have never guessed you were writing about Tom Cruise.

I did know this one. Most of the time, the name changes are silly. He made the right decision on this one  :):)

No clue until the reveal. I suspect there are few who do not know this name.

Hello James,  Tom Cruise was not that good at a young age in his first film but then top gun came along and that did it.

Dear James,

Never knew that that is his real name. Just does not have the same ring, eh?
