On Thursday, March 9th, Brett and Mike were excited to welcome actor Mateus Ward to ‘Conversations’!
Mateus Ward was born in Burbank, California, but was raised on the island of Maui in Hawaii. He is the son of an American father, producer/director/filmmaker Justin Ward, and an Italian immigrant mother, Laura Di Nardo (Laura Ward). His first role was in a live musical theater production where he impersonated Elvis, and then was offered the role of Winfield Joad in the stage production of “The Grapes of Wrath” at the Maui Academy of Performing Arts. In 2009, his family moved back to Los Angeles, where Mateus pursued acting in television and film. In 2010, he appeared in several short films and national commercials. His television debut was on the CBS network’s dramatic police procedural “Criminal Minds.”
We talked with Mateus about everything from his time in Hawaii, how he got his start in acting, his collections, comics, his new film, ‘The Meanest Man in Texas’ and a whole lot more! Check out the show below:
