Exclusive Q&A:Tim Kano aka Matt

How long have you been acting and how did you get your first big break?
I've been acting since I was 11 in school productions and plays. My first big break was probably a guest cast role on 'The Tribe', season three.

What is the thing you enjoy most about working on Reservoir Hill?
David and Thomas have brought together a great team. The crew and cast are really nice and fun to work with - they're down to earth and help each other out.

What has been your favourite scene to film so far in Res Hill?
All of the scenes are cool, discreetly revealing the secrets of Reservoir Hill... If I had to pick one though, the party in episode five was fun - getting to show some sort of emotion, pity it was such a tight schedule!

What do you do in your down time when you're not shooting?
Meet friends, listen to music, see movies, travel...

Who is the actor or actress that you look up to or admire the most?
Orson Welles and  Gael Garcia Bernal .

Which other character would you like to play and why?
Hmm... not many options there! James has a cool mysterious role - a facade..? But doesn't everyone in Reservoir Hill have a facade? Mrs Jay would be a fun role to play with.

Who do you TXT message the most?

What's on your bedside table?
Phone, watch, clock, lamp, Murakami

What song's been in your head all day / last song you downloaded?
The Radio Dept - 'Someone else.'

Are you single or attached?

What is your date of birth and what star sign are you?
2nd September,Virgo.

Who was your first celebrity crush?
Mischa Barton.

What do your friends/family think about your starring role on Reservoir Hill?
My family live overseas so don't know much - but I think they are happy for me - my friends don't really know, but ones that do think it's hilarious!
