    • Matthew: (on how he got into acting): I was 17 when I played Elvis in a school production and that's when I got the acting bug, which a bit sad really when you think about it [laughs.] I realised I could maybe make it into a proper job, as it were, when Ioan [Gruffudd], who I was at school with, went to RADA to train. Up until that point I'd always thought RADA was some posh place that was just for English people, but when one of our own ended up there I started to think of it as an achievable goal for someone like me so I auditioned and got in. But, having said that, there was definitely no great master plan to have a big acting career. I just drifted along to begin with. Things just evolved organically, I suppose.
