With his portrayal of the hilarious Ricky Schwartz on MTV’s hit show Awkward., actor Matthew Fahey has certainly made a name for himself. And if you’ve seen his other work, it’s a no-brainer as to how and why. As an actor, Fahey is skillful, precise and, most of all, relatable. As a professional, he’s fiercely driven.
Along with Awkward., Fahey recently guest starred on the TNT crime drama, Rizzoli & Isles and premiered films, like “The First Time” and “Excision” at Sundance. Fahey has also been busy working on the TV mini-series short, “The Ben and Ari Show” and the short, “Picture Paris” with Julia Louis-Dreyfus, which will be premiering at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. But if you think that the 21 year old actor has let it go to his head, think again.
I recently had the chance to chat with Matthew about his recent acting adventures, his production company- Auteur Legacy Productions– (yes, did I mention he also has one of those?), and his future plans. Take a listen after the jump!
