I watch your movies at least once aweek you are a very good actor .I honestly believe you become the person that you are acting I just wanted to teel you this and this is why your movies are best seller

Sandy in pa/usaAug 10, 2010

Mattew you are a great actor and I keep looking for more of your work.I`ve just seen the 5 part bbc masterpiece `Little Dorrit`it took me this long to find it for region 1 in usa.Very good but I know you`ve heard it before-your role in Pride is the best because your eye`s,body language and the way you carry yourself just captivates and enchants us as the viewers-not everyone can act like that and make it real-keep up the great work and let`s see more of you...Keeley is one lucky women!

My name is Haydée. I live in Rio de Janeiro, I don`t speak english very well, but I would like to enter in contact with Matthew Macfadyen, by e-mail, and tell him that I admire his talent , affection, good manners, education, gentility (I perceived this in some videos), beauty (he`s really handsome), joy and savoir-faire . I like when he demonstrates to admire his wife and kids! It seems to be a good man and I like this ! Thank you
