Who is Matty Finochio?

Born on 24th December 1985, in Hamilton, Ontario Canada, Matty Finochio is a respected actor of Italian descent, possibly known best for his role in “Autumn Dreams”. Standing tall at 5ft 11ins (1.80m) and weighing 170lbs (77kgs) with vital statistics of 42-35-16 (chest, waist, biceps), the striking Capricorn has earned himself scores of fans around the world thanks to his work.

Family & Education

With a comedy writer for a father and an actor for an uncle, Matty seemed destined to have a career in showbiz from a young age. Matty and his numerous family relocated to Los Angeles in the late 1980s, due to the nature of his father’s work, and the youngster’s acting aspirations were born following his participation in a Sherman Oaks school program.

After acting in plays in elementary and high school, Matty studied at theater school, and went on to work in a restaurant. Later, he auditioned for a dinner theater show and landed a role, thus setting the foundations for a long and fruitful career.

2004 – 2010

Branching out from theater, Matty made a brief cameo in the 2004 short “Man Feel Pain”, and earned his first of many acting credits. The following year, he played a staffer in an episode of “The L Word”, a dynamic romcom following the adventures of four lesbian friends living in Los Angeles.

2006 proved a busier year for the thespian, as he appeared in episodes of “Whistler”, “Masters of Horror”, and “Masters of Science Fiction”, and played Course Marshall in “The Foursome”. In 2007, the handsome actor had a supporting role as Vinnie in “Taming Tammy”, the fondly-remembered modern adaptation of Shakespeare’s “Taming of the Shrew”, which was nominated for a Leo Award. He also appeared in episodes of “The Virgin of Akron, Ohio”, and “About a Girl”. After showcasing his versatility in projects such as “Shark Out of Water” and “Aliens in America”, Matty began climbing up the ranks in Hollywood, with roles in box office hits such as “Night At The Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian”, and “Encounter with Danger”.

TV movies also became his specialty, as he played Antonio Roja in “Riverworld”, and Quincy in “Wolf Canyon”. Between steady jobs, Matty also fattened up his acting portfolio with shorts including “Sad Bear”, “Naked”, and “Salvation”, working with talents such as Elizabeth Marleau and June B. Wilde. The artist’s role as Clifton in the award-winning “Amazon Falls”, a 2010 drama movie directed by Katrin Bowen and written by Curry Hitchborn, also came as a great boost to his career.

2011 – 2020

Matty started 2011 off on the right foot, with the role as Ted in the R-rated “50/50”, a hilarious Jonathan Levine movie starring Joseph Gordon-Lewitt, Seth Rogen and Anna Kendrick.

With its flawless comedic timing and star-studded cast, it comes as no surprise that the movie was nominated for dozens of accolades, including an honorable mention at the Awards Circuit Community Awards. Despite other projects of Matty’s being commercial flops, such as the terror suspense production “Crash Site”, the actor’s star wasn’t dimmed by the occasional lowlight in his career. Turning to safe and reliable roles in the TV movies “Merry In-Laws”, “I, Martin Short, Goes Home”, and “Seattle Superstorm”, it was just a matter of time before Matty would land a main role, in “Kiss at Pine Lake”, a heartwarming Hallmark Channel production starring Barry Watson and Mia Kirshner.

Between 2013 and 2014, other roles in TV movies included Matty’s portrayal of Stan in “Far from Home” and his depiction of Fitch in “Window Wonderland”. Despite becoming a Hallmark staple, the talented Canadian also appeared in “Supernatural” and “Witches of East End”, and enjoyed a recurring role in the award-winning “Once Upon a Time in Wonderland”. The second half of the 2010s proved to be just as jam-packed for Matty, as the in-demand celebrity had a supporting role in “Bridal Wave”, played Edward in “So You Said Yes”, and brought Tony McAllister to life in “Autumn Dreams”.

With his amazing ease to switch from romantic TV movies, to gritty shorts and series, it’s no wonder that Matty’s career has gone from strength to strength instead of slowing down. Although the actor has had too many roles to name over the years, notable projects include his work in “Loudermilk”, “Riverdale”, and “Freaks”. Fans eagerly await his upcoming projects, which include a supporting role in “Welcome to Mama’s”, currently in post-production stages.

Personal Life & Net Worth

Matty prefers to focus on his craft, and doesn’t seek out media attention, another reason why fans love him so much. However, he doesn’t shy away from posting his beautiful wife Karly Snow on social media.

We don’t know much about Karly, but we discovered that her birthday is on 22nd June, and that she’s a stay-at-home wife. With her warm personality and down-to-earth nature, it appears that Karly and Matty have a lot in common. The couple welcomed their daughter Mazel in early 2021 and baptized her at Vancouver’s Temple Sholom in an intimate ceremony, receiving an outpouring of support from followers. For now, they haven’t confirmed any plans regarding future children. Since tying the knot in September 2018 in the Distillery Historic District, after a lengthy engagement, the pair’s relationship has yet to be sullied by rumors of infidelity, with Matty appearing to be the perfect family man.

Karly also loves children, and regularly posts photos of her nieces and daughter. So how much is Matty’s net worth as of February 2022? Reliable sources confirm that the actor has earned $4 million since his debut in 2004, a healthy sum that comes from the Canadian’s steady stream of projects. Hallmark actors playing a leading role can earn up to $3,500 a week, although some outlets claim that particularly popular ones earn up to six figures per film. Whatever the case, Matty’s career is clearly going well, and will hopefully continue to do so.
