Barbara Mackenzie-Wood can tell Mathews is passionate as soon as he enters her audition room with an excerpt from Romeo and Juliet, so when she asks him if acting is truly his calling, his response was “Yes. Absolutely.” Passion is essential for an artist; it will keep you going when sleep and confidence become scarce while bearing through failure when everything around you tells you to stop.
