Episode Twenty-Six: Niall Matter
Niall Matter grew up on a dairy farm and worked on oil rigs until an accident forced him to confront the fact that he really wanted to be was an actor. Fast-forward a few years, and Niall is living his dream. He played a bad-boy genius on Eureka and a bad boy inventor on Primeval New World. In recent years, Niall has become a go-to leading man in the Hallmark realm. He portrays a college professor named Nick Miller in the Aurora Teagarden movies, acting opposite Candace Cameron Bure (Full House) – and earlier this year, he won the Leo Award for Best Lead Performance By A Male in a Television Movie for Frozen in Love. Niall spoke with Sabrina Furminger about his remarkable origin story, working in sci-fi and on the Hallmark Channel, and why he considers himself a member of the crew first and foremost.
