    About me

    Matthew Swan is a South-East English actor currently represented by Jane Shackleton & Vanessa Hetherington at Robot Fish and Tina Hartery at BDiscovered. In 2011, Matthew graduated from Film Studies at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge where he grew a huge passion for acting after performing in several of his pier's short films and began pursuing a career in acting by studying Acting for the Screen at Brighton Film School.

    In 2012, Matthew was cast among the principal actors on his debut feature film, the award winning Miracle Grow (dir. Emma Kinni). Since then, Matthew has secured lead roles in short films such as The Living (dir. Ben Knowles) and The Mishap (dir. Krystal Smith) as well as landing supporting roles in feature films Environmental Enforcement (dir. Daniel Casper) and Through The Lens (dir. Oscar Forshaw Swift) which is scheduled for mainstream release in North America late 2014.

    Matthew has continued to focus on pursuing his acting career and has extended his experience and technique by performing in a variety of productions ranging from music videos to voice-over work, and even working with green screen and in January 2014 was cast in his first play as a principal character, Those That Can't (dir. Daniel Casper). Matthew has worked with Hat Trick Productions, Monkey Kingdom and Terra Rossa Films Entertainment. Since November 2013, Matthew has also been trained in Screen & Stage Combat.
