Macht was born in The Bronx, New York, the son of Suzanne Victoria Pulier, a museum curator and archivist, and actor Stephen Macht. He has three siblings, Jesse, a musician (who appeared on The Next Great American Band), Ari Serbin, and Julie. His parents are both Jewish.
Macht was raised in California from the age of five. Following high school, he attended Carnegie Mellon College of Fine Arts, graduating in 1994. During his time at Carnegie Mellon he became a member of Delta Upsilon fraternity.
Macht was nominated for the Best Young Motion Picture Actor Award after playing his first role at age eight in the film Why Would I Lie? under the stage name Gabriel Swann. He has appeared in many film and television roles including A Love Song for Bobby Long, Because I Said So, The Recruit, and Archangel. For the 2001 film Behind Enemy Lines, Macht spent a week at sea filming on the flight deck, corridors, and hangar bay #3 of the USS Carl Vinson. Macht played the title role in Frank Miller's 2008 adaptation of Will Eisner's comic creation The Spirit. Although the film was a failure upon theatrical release, the film and Macht himself both gained a cult following.
In July 2010, it was announced that Macht had signed on to star in the new USA network drama Suits, which was originally known under the working title A Legal Mind. The show has been a success for Gabriel having just been renewed for a fourth season of 16 episodes in October 2013, which will begin airing in March 2014. Although not listed in the credits on the official USA Network page, Macht's name along with co-star Patrick J. Adams' names appear as "co-producers" during the end credits of each episode during season 3.
Macht married Australian-born actress Jacinda Barrett in 2004. The couple had their first child, a girl, Satine Anais Geraldine Macht, born August 20, 2007 in Los Angeles. He has been best friends with his Suits co-star Sarah Rafferty for 20 years, ever since they met in 1993 at the Williamstown Theatre Festival. Macht is a vegetarian and practices green living.
