Mathews has captivated viewers.

Previously speaking to TshisaLIVE, Mathews said his on-screen character has created a false perception about him and he has to reassure people he and his on-screen character are opposites

“It has created an image that says I’m a romantic in a way, and I’m not really romantic. I think the life of the character has taken over my image, in a way, with the perception of what my life is.”

Asked how his long-time girlfriend receives his intimate scenes, Mathews said: “It’s been tricky because I have to remind her it’s just a scene and it never went far.

With a background in theatre, Mathews said being part of the show contributed to his growth as an actor.

“It’s been interesting. It’s been an amazing journey. The most difficult scenes are always the intimate ones because we have to have a conversation about whether we are OK with me going so far. It has to be a conversation so we don’t overstep in the name of playing a role. My difficulty has been playing intimate scenes throughout my career, they need special attention,” he said.
