Not long after setting up acting profiles Mathew Ray booked his first role as a featured background for HBO and immediately joined SAG-AFTRA. A film/TV student from Boston University, he worked student and indie short films while taking acting courses in Stanislavski method acting, experimenting with script breakdown and performance, and working with numerous acting coaches. Mathew is no longer accepting extra work to avoid being typecast as an extra and open opportunities for principal roles.
