In 2007 he appeared in small roles in “Grey’s Anatomy“, “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” and “Monk” but in 2008 he was chosen to play the voice of Anakin Skywalker in the series “Star Wars: The Clone Wars“. That same year he got the role of the main protagonist in the television movie “The Cutting Edge 3: Chasing the Dream” by ABC Family.

In the same time, the actor was chosen as recurring character in the The CW’s series “90210” as Liam Court. After the end of the first season, his character was promoted to series regular and he played this role until the series ends in 2013.
The series was a big hit for The CW and Matt gained a lot of popularity thanks to his character.
In 2010 he played the role of Edward Sullen in the parody of “The Twilight Saga” “Vampire Suck” which wasn’t a big hit.
The next year, in 2011, he appeared in the horror/thriller movie “The Roomate” next to other teen stars like Minka Kelly, Nina Dobrev and Leighton Meester.
In 2013 The CW announced that they were working on a new science fiction romance television series. Matt Lanter was chosen to play the main protagonist on this new project and it was announced that the series will be titled “Star-Crossed“.
In this new show Matt played the role of Roman an alien male who is in love with a human girl, Emery Whitehill played by Aimee Teegarden. In the show other The CW’s stars appeared like Malese Jow who played the role of Anna in “The Vampire Diaries“.
The show premiered this monday and it will last for 13 episodes. The first episode had 1.28 million viewers and we hope that it will continue to have good ratings because the pilot wasn’t to bad for a teen drama.
