The Matrix star Matt Doran and his wife, textile designer Teri McPhillips, secured $1.05 million when their one bedroom Paddington apartment went to auction yesterday.

It was listed following the birth of their first child, with the baby crib in the main bedroom.

The onesite auction saw 20 gather at the 9.30 onsite, one of the earliest of the weekend's 900 plus offerings.

Neither of McPhillips or Doran was in the crowd, having left instructions.

There were the three bidders.

Sam Hosking and Susannah Anderson at The Agency who handled the marketing announced it on the market at $1,005,000.

The couple were hoping for $1 million for their 69 sqm one bedroom 1920s apartment with sweeping northerly district views.

Only two apartments in the block have secured over $1 million and they were both presented as two bedders.

Renovated since their $565,000 purchase in 2012, the first floor art deco unit sits at the rear of Dalma Court, a block of 12.

After graduating from the Australian Film and TV Academy in the early 1990s, Doran was quickly cast as Damien Roberts, a schoolboy on Home and Away, for four years.

Doran landed a lead role in the film, Pirates' Island, and made an appearance on E Street

His breakthrough came in 1999 when he starred in The Matrix as Mouse, the youngest and most diminutive crew member on the Nebuchadnezzar.

A year later he played Elan Sleazebaggano in Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones, making his living selling death sticks.

Last year he featured in the drama Trafficked alongside Ashley Judd.
