Meet Matthew

Matthew is an actor currently residing in Brooklyn, NY. He was diagnosed with a rare form of dwarfism at a young age, and with that, his plans of becoming an NBA player came to a sudden halt (but it's OK because he found his real calling).

His parents had the prescience that his talents belonged in the arts, and encouraged him every step of the way as he discovered, studied, and honed his work as a young actor.

In college, Matthew majored in acting and was one of the 16 Kennedy Center's Irene Ryan National Finalists for his work as Tom Wingfield in The Glass Menagerie.

After graduating college in 2013, Matthew moved to NYC and studied at the American Theater Wing with Tony Award winning director Diane Paulus. Shortly after, he became a member of The Bats at the The Flea theater where he received critical acclaim playing God in the NYT Critic's Pick, The Mysteries.

Matthew recently had a co-starring role on NBC's The Blacklist, and continues every day to work on improving his craft.

Outside of the acting world, Matthew is a die-hard Baltimore Ravens fan (you can read more on this in his SPEAKER page). He is an avid cyclist, reader, and piano player, enjoys photography, is passionate about veganism, and does his best to be a devoted son, friend, and boyfriend.

His dream? Matthew looks up to Peter Dinklage (literally...Dinklage is 4" taller). Using his acting ability, Matthew wants to continue to challenge the image of a short statured actor. He wants to challenge the norms and be a role model for future short statured actors and anyone who is "different". He thanks you for visiting his website. 

 

 

Matthew recites his opening monologue from Light Shining In Buckinghamshire!

From BroadwayBox: 

"New York Theatre Workshop's revival of Caryl Churchill's Light Shining in Buckinghamshire kicks off with a captivating monologue by Matthew Jeffers. Directed by Rachel Chavkin, the 1976 play dramatizes the 1647 events surrounding the English Civil War. Matthew Jeffers begins the play with a prayer to God that is so masterfully performed, it had to be preserved for our new monologue series."


Matthew co-stars in season 3 of The Blacklist on NBC!
