Home and Away star Matt Evans sat down with Yahoo Lifestyle to 'Spill the Tea'. Watch more.
MATT EVANS: Hi, I"m Matt Evans. I play Theo Poulos on "Home and Away," and I'm going to play "Spill the Tea" here with "Yahoo Lifestyle." If you choose how your character leaves "Home and Away," killed off or still alive? Killing off is great because it's dramatic, but still alive is always good because you can always come back. When I'm-- I have no job or work left in my life and I'm just old and jaded and maybe I want something to do, maybe I want to come back to the Bay. No, I love "Home and Away," so I don't want to be killed off. I want to come back, so still alive.
Next one. Can you explain what an intimacy coordinator does and how it helps you on the "Home and Away" set? Oh, a good question. Intimacy coordinator just basically goes through with you and your on-screen partner, or, like, how you would approach any intimacy within the scene. Some people are more comfortable with it than others and so, it's just kind of getting each other on the same page so that it's never awkward and then one's just groping the other person and everyone's like, what is going on here? So it's pretty essential, and yeah, it's a very good thing to have.
OK, I keep picking all the big, long questions. Imagine you're stranded on a desert island. Choose three people and three items you want with you. My mom, my dad, and I would say my brother and sister, so maybe I just take half of my brother and half of my sister. Like, yeah, cool. Three items you want with you. Some curl cream for my hair, maybe, because I'm looking like a scientist today. It's a bit dry. And a guitar. Maybe, like, a water bottle so I can stay alive.
What is the craziest or most expensive thing you've ever purchased? Actually, the most expensive thing I've ever bought was my most recent guitar, and it was like 3 and 1/2 thousand dollars, so it's the most expensive thing I've ever bought. And I wouldn't say it's a crazy thing because I need it to play live shows, and my old one I'd had for, like, eight years and the pickups weren't very good, so it was very-- I needed a good-quality guitar, so that's essential. And that would be the most expensive thing I've ever bought. Yes, Daddy bought me my car. I didn't buy it.
What do you hope to achieve in the next five years? A music career that I can be able to play, like, my live shows in big venues and to be honest, like, I don't really-- I, like, set goals, but I kind of just take life day by day. So the biggest thing for me is, like, I want to be able to achieve a music career and play live shows, but then apart from that, I'm just going to keep myself open-minded and take anything that goes my way.
