5. He Loves Doing TV And Film Roles

Matthew has already been able to land roles in both TV and film, and he says each medium has its perks. He told Cryptic Rock, “the main thing that comes to mind is, that with features, you have one set director. This is while in television, each episode usually has a different director. Both are very unique in their own ways and I love doing both!”
