Matthew's Profile

Experience Summary

I am originally from Australia but have been living in the UK for the past 10 years. The same motivation that has brought me half way round the world, and has seen me succeed in creating a new life in this country, is fed into all the work I do. I have committed myself to a life as a professional actor. A difficult and often at times a very challenging career. I don't believe anything good is achieved with out a lot of hard work and this is why I always apply myself with the maximum amount of energy possible to any situation. I'm not shy of hard work and I relish the chance to challenge myself and learn new skills. I will always attempt something new but I also feel it is important to recognise when you are out of your depth and need to ask for help. I am trust worthy and thorough. There is no point doing a job unless you are willing to see it through to the end and to do it to the best of your ability. This is why I am booked again and again by the same people.
