Matt Evans is a newcomer to Home and Away, having joined the show last year.
Theo Poulos came up at his aunt Leah Patterson’s front door in Summer Bay after fleeing his family.
From getting imprisoned to burying his friend Ryder in an underground coffin during a prank, his character has been nothing but trouble on the show.
Matt is nothing like his role in real life, since he has an unexpected gift and lives with his co-star Jacqui Purvis.
How old is Matt and where is he from?
Matt is around 25 years old and celebrated his birthday on 19 August. He was born and raised in Western Australia.
After finishing high school, he went on to study at the West Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA).
He completed a four-year degree and has a Bachelor of Contemporary Music in Voice.
Matt worked as a tradesman forklift driver and played in the band Atlas Chasers before getting his big break.
Who does Matt play in Home and Away?
Matt portrays Theo Poulos, the nephew of Leah Patterson’s brother Dimitri.
He is caught and transported to Leah’s house when he drives into Summer Bay, stating that his father kicked him out for accepting his job offer.
How did Matt end up on Home and Away?
Matt made his acting debut on the soap, with his first appearance being on Home and Away.
He got it to the top 20 on The Voice Australia in 2020, when he was 23 years old, and was mentored by singer Delta Goodrem.
Is Matt single?
Yes, Matt recently revealed that he is single and that there is no one “on the horizon.”
He added that, despite writing a lot of love songs, he hasn’t had many girlfriends in the past since he doesn’t easily fall in love.
After they moved in together, fans speculated that he and his co-star Jacqui Purvis, who plays Felicity Newman, were dating.
Matt, on the other hand, was keen to state that he was indeed single.
They’re just good friends and roommates, she said, adding that they’re having a “fun” living together and that he’s one of her favorite people on the planet.
Last year, when Matt turned 25 and Jacqui made her first appearance on Home and Away on the same day, she planned a special birthday celebration for him.
