Matt Evans’ star has soared rapidly since his acting debut on Home and Away less than a year ago.
Matt has the world at his fingertips, from a Silver Logie Award nomination to a rapidly rising fanbase for his portrayal of bad boy Theo Poulos.
While he has no imminent plans to leave Summer Bay, the 25-year-old tells our sister site TV WEEK that he is determined to try his luck in Hollywood.
“Obviously, I have intentions to move to the United States and give it a shot and see what I can achieve over there,” he says.
“I have a fantastic agent and everything in place, so that was always the idea; otherwise, I’d be thinking ‘what if?'”
When it comes to Matt’s ideal co-star, he wants to work on a romantic comedy with Jason Bateman, a Hollywood heavyweight.
“He’s my favourite of all time. I’m completely enamoured with him because he’s so amusing. I’d love to collaborate with him on a romantic comedy. That’s a significant deal for me, to be honest “he declares
“I’m a huge fan of romantic comedies and other films like that. Some of my favourite characters are the leading male, who is both charming and humorous.”
Despite his ambitions for international success, Matt says that the prospect of leaving his Summer Bay family makes him sad.
“On Home and Away, I still feel at ease and at ease. I’m already getting anxious about leaving the house and having to fend for myself, and I’m wondering to myself, ‘What if I never work again?’ “he declares
“I’m very delighted to be portraying Theo for the next few years.”
While Matt, who joined the cast in September 2021, is unquestionably bound for international prominence, he has found his Home and Away experience useful.
“It’s the ideal setting for me to learn how to act. It’s a fantastic learning environment for me, and I believe it’s just what I required before moving on to something different “he declares
“Getting a short number of takes and needing to be precise and know your lines, I think you develop a new level of respect for everyone involved when you’re there and doing it.”
Matt has worked in a variety of settings, including warehouses, pubs, and teaching music to children. But playing Theo on Home and Away has brought him a new level of career fulfilment.
“It was the first time I understood what it meant when someone said, “You never have to work a day in your life if you do what you enjoy.” That was the first time in my life way I felt like that. ‘I genuinely enjoy my life,’ I said “He gushes and gushes and gushes and gushe
“I’m simply really loving my life, even if I have to put in the effort and work hard for this position.”
