Our lovely Mark Matthews is currently appearing in War Horse’s International Tour. Mark stars as Joey (the horse)’s hind in the National Theatre’s touring production.
Mark trained at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts. His work in theatre includes his current role in War Horse on UK and international tour for the National Theatre; A Christmas Carol in Geneva, Switzerland; The Pirate Squad at Millfield; and The Return of Neverland on UK tour. Mark’s TV work includes Almost Never and his film work includes Cain and The Bear.
War Horse is set at the outbreak of World War One where Joey, young Albert’s beloved horse, is sold to the Cavalry and shipped to France. He’s soon caught up in enemy fire, and fate takes him on an extraordinary journey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in no man’s land. Albert, who remained on his parents’ Devon farm, cannot forget Joey. Though still not old enough to enlist he embarks on a treacherous mission to find him and bring him home. The ensamble cast masterfully puppeteer Joey throughout the production and have entertained over 8 million people around the globe.
Mark is doing a fantastic job and we couldn’t be prouder.
