Matthew Alan, born Matthew Gerbig, and his wife Camilla Luddington both share a love for acting. According to Daily Actor, the Indiana native discovered his passion for being onscreen while he was actually in school studying to be a teacher at Western Kentucky University. During his time there, he was working in communications and had just started the semester to get his master’s degree. But, that all changed when he came across the “The Laramie Project.” He told the outlet, “I kind of just fell upon this play that I fell in love with at the time and just kind of changed gears entirely.” He continued, “I read that play and that’s when I was like, ‘Oh, I like the idea of actually performing and acting for a career.”’
With no prior experience in the industry, Alan decided to completely change the direction in which his life was going. He dropped out of graduate school and enrolled into the Academy of Dramatic Arts in Los Angeles. “I went there for a year and that’s kind of where I got my feet wet in the whole Los Angeles acting and audition world,” he added.
Alan’s first big role was on “Veronica Mars.” According to IMDb, he has since appeared on shows like “NCIS,” “Castle Rock,” “Snowfall,” and “Modern Family,” to name a few. But, even though he and his wife are in the same industry, it hasn’t always been easy.
