Matthew became interested in acting following an appearance on a British documentary series with his brother Jeffrey.
Matthew often appears alongside his twin brother, Jeffrey Postlethwaite.
Remained in character throughout the entire production of Shooting Clerks. Various day players and cameo stars were shocked to discover that he wasn’t American when filming wrapped.
His nickname, ‘Old Soul’, refers to a scene from Shooting Clerks in which his character refers to himself as such. The reason it stuck was that due to a bout of group (cast and crew) corpsing during filming, Matt had to repeat the line fifty times.

Since a young age, Louisa has had a love of performing, having been a pupil at London’s iconic Sylvia Young Theatre School. Here, she learnt from some of the best tutors, and was able to develop her skills as both an actress, and an all-round performer. It was this platform that led to Louisa securing her first professional role, as the innocent schoolgirl Ruby Allen in BBC1’s BAFTA award winning EastEnders. Here, Louisa became an overnight sensation, racking up column inches and piles of critical acclaim as she tackled the many controversial storylines that the EastEnders writers through her way.
Since leaving EastEnders, Louisa’s star continued to rise, as she joined another iconic British television show, The Bill. Here, she played the inexperienced and shy police officer Beth Green. Following this, Louisa has enjoyed a whole host of varied roles, from parts in the internationally successful American Pie franchise, to the British Shakespeare Company’s productions of both A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Much Ado About Nothing.
Away from acting, Louisa is also an accomplished dancer, having competed in the fourth series of Strictly Come Dancing, where she successfully reached the quarter-finals. Following on from this, Louisa toured the country as part of the sold-out Strictly Come Dancing arena tour, and represented the United Kingdom in the 2008 Eurovision Dance Contest.
Currently, Louisa is busy as a result of her role in the new ITV comedy drama The Edge of Heaven; an exciting new prime-time comedy based around the trials and tribulations of a family running a guest house in Margate. For this part, Louisa is working alongside a talented cast that includes Blake Harrison (The Inbetweeners, Him and Her).
