Last week, I had the chance to see Matt on stage during a weekend performance of “Knives in Hens“. The play was amazing and Matt did a superb job. It was my first time seeing him on stage and I’m hoping it won’t be the last.
I got to sit down with Matt after the play for a mini interview, these were his answers.
Matt about the Play: It’s so intense and concentrated and the thing is, it’s not literal, it’s very symbolic and metaphorical and ambiguous, lots of questions are deliberately left unanswered. The play I think is very filmic, with the lighting and the pictures and the sensuality of it.
Matt about the Cast: The way we work together as actors, very early on we did a lot of physical work so that when we came to it, we’re way used to each other’s bodies. Getting used to the physicality of that so that there’s no fear for us as actors.
Matt about the Director: Our director is unbelievable, [Yaël Farber] she’s such a special human being and director.
Matt about any future projects: (smirks) Maybe.
Knives in Hens runs until October 7, so make sure to try and see him before the show runs end.
Last night was the opening night of Matt’s new play “Knives in Hens”. All the review praise the play so far and I can’t wait to see it. If you live in the UK and would like to see the play, make sure to participate in our twitter giveaway.
I’ve updated the gallery with additional rehearsal photos, newly released production stills and photos from the cast after party yesterday.

A couple of years ago, Matt was part of an indie movie called Away with Juno Temple & Timothy Spall. Matt plays Dax, the abusive boyfriend of Juno’s character Ria. The movie was finally released on UK’s iTunes a few weeks ago and I was able to get my hand on a copy.
I’ve updated the gallery with over 800 high quality screencaptures of Matt in the movie, enjoy!
Another year passed and I can’t believe how fast it went. July 27 marks the third anniversary of the site being online! It honestly feels like just a few months ago when I saw Matt’s first look as Constantine and I just fell in love right there. We’d like to thank Matt for being the awesome guy he is,
and maybe 2017 is the year I finally get to fly to the UK to see him on Stage!
To celebrate the site’s birthday, I’ve put a brand new layout on the site and gallery thanks to my friends Carol & Jen. Hope you guys like it as much as I do.
And as a small extra gift, to mark the special occasion, I’ve updated the gallery with over 800 exclusive outtakes of Matt’s promotional shoot for Constantine a couple of years ago, enjoy!
With a huge thanks to my friend Don for the tip, Matt have joined the cast of a small production that will run over the few couple of months in London titled ‘Knives in Hens‘.
‘I have no name for the thing which is in my head. It is not envy. It is more than envy. It does not scare me. I must look close enough to look at what it is.’
A ploughman and his wife live a simple existence in a pre-industrial time until they, along with the hated local miller, are drawn into a struggle of knowledge, power and attraction.
David Harrower’s haunting play established him as one of the UK’s leading contemporary playwrights. Multi-award-winning director Yaël Farber brings her own distinctive style to this tense, modern classic.’
