Mat told My Fan Base, “I didn’t ever seriously entertain the idea of becoming an actor until I crossed paths with my high school drama teacher who I still love very dearly, Mrs. Stella Griffin. She saw something in me that I couldn’t see in myself and pretty much forced me to audition for a production of Godspell she was putting on at the school and after resisting the whole way, I ended up doing the show and I fell in love.”

Mat’s character in Revolution may have spoken Spanish, but some people may be surprised to know that Mat doesn’t speak Spanish at all.

He ran the scenes with me probably 20 times every day so that we could find a rhythm, sound conversational and natural, and so that I actually sounded like someone who’d been speaking Spanish for years.”
