BEST OF HALIFAX!

BEST OF HALIFAX!
Whoa! I have been voted as Halifax’s Favourite Film/Television Actor by the readers of The Coast, Halifax’s most widely read free newspaper/magazine. This is an incredible honour that I accept with shameful, nerd-like enthusiasm (indicated above with Simba singing “Oh I just can’t wait to be king”).

Write up stolen from TheCoast.ca (http://www.thecoast.ca/halifax/best-filmtv-actor-male/BestOf?oid=2756659)…

They used to call James Brown the Hardest-Working Man in Show Business. Now that moniker belongs to Glen Matthews. Check this: He was in *Hobo with a Shotgun* (the fake trailer and the feature), *The Corridor*, *Roller Town* and the TV series *Haven.* He treads the boards locally on a regular basis—he was nominated for a Merritt Award last year for his work in *Logan and I* and this month he’ll be in Halifax Theatre for Young People’s *In the Fall*. And he acts in short films, including Josh MacDonald’s Bridge Award short *Game,* Cory Bowles’ *Righteous* and he directed his first short film recently, *Room Service*. He feels good, as he knew he would. Get down with his bad self at glenmatthews.ca.

The move to Toronto (I won’t lie) has been a tough one. Uprooting myself from my home, my love, my friends, my family, in search of an intangible goal is a difficult task to maintain and stand behind without instant gratification. This serves as a wonderful reminder that while I may not be here with you in Halifax, that you incredible bastards are still standing behind me, cheering me on.

Thank you Halifax, I am truly feeling the love.

If you’re free tonight (Thursday, November 3rd), come on out to The Coast’s Best Of Awards at The Maritime Museum of the Atlantic at 6:30pm. Click here to download your invite: http://www.thecoast.ca/parties/TheCoast-BOHParty.pdf
