Matthew Le Nevez
Born (1979-01-10) 10 January 1979 (age 35)
Canberra, Australia
Occupation Actor

Matthew (Matt) Le Nevez (born 10 January 1979 in Canberra) is an award-winning Australian actor. He is best known for his role as Dr Patrick Reid in the TV series Offspring.

Early life[edit]

Le Nevez was born in Canberra in 1979 and attended The French-Australian School, Telopea Park School and St Edmund's College, Canberra before accepted into NIDA aged 17. He graduated in 1999. Matt was raised by loving parents who have supported him in his endeavours.

Career[edit]

Le Nevez took a small role in an Australian-made sci-fi series, Farscape, followed by a part in teen drama Head Start. In 2002 he appeared in his first feature film Garage Days playing a drug-fuelled rock star. He then played Aaron Reynolds, accomplice to the notorious Brenden James Abbott the Post Card Bandit, in the TV miniseries of the same name.

In 2003 came a break-through role, that of rough and ready Bullet Sheather in the ABC Television miniseries Marking Time, for which Le Nevez won an AFI Television Award in 2004 for Best Actor in a Supporting or Guest Role in a Television Drama or Comedy.[1]

The film Peaches saw him sharing a screen with Hugo Weaving and Jacqueline McKenzie, but it was the role in 2006 of notorious Mathew Wales (convicted of the murders of his mother Margaret Wales-King and stepfather Paul King) in the TV movie The Society Murders that won Le Nevez critical acclaim.[2] He won the Most Outstanding Actor on Australian television Logie Award in 2006.[3]

Le Nevez stars in the Australian film The Tender Hook. Written and directed by Jonathan Ogilvie, it is the story of Iris (Rose Byrne) and a love triangle that includes her roguish English lover, McHeath and Art (Matt Le Nevez), an earnest young boxer. The film also stars his previous acting colleague, Hugo Weaving.

Matt has also recently appeared as the boyfriend of "Kate" (Sibylla Budd) in the Come Walkabout commercial for Tourism Australia, directed by Baz Luhrmann.[4]

In 2010, he appeared in Legend of the Seeker as Leo, the new Seeker. In 2011, he became a regular in the Network Ten comedy/drama "Offspring" as anaethetist Dr Patrick Reid, and continued in season 3 (2012) and 4 (2013) .[5] His character was killed off on the 7 August 2013 episode, and made Australian headlines following an outpouring of grief from Offspring fans.

In 2012 he played the part of former Australian cricketer Dennis Lillee in the mini-series Howzat! Kerry Packer's War about Kerry Packer's World Series Cricket.[6]

He will play the part of Damien Parer in the 2014 television film Parer's War.
