Matt: (on living with actor Luke Jacobz) He's a slob, he snores and every time we spoon, he kick me out of bed! No, I'm kidding! Luke and I clicked and living together is a hoot. Often we'll get back on a Friday night and we'll go out for a pub meal. He's a top bloke!
Matt: (on riding horses on "McLeod's Daughters") I rode a bit as a kid, but when I came to McLeod's I told the horse wrangler I knew nothing so I didn't look like a fool! I had a two-hour refresher as I'd had a few lessons earlier when I'd played a different character on the show. Plus, (my character) Marcus is a city boy, so he's mainly on the bikes.
