Matthew Chamberlain


After forays into agriculture studies and time overseas, Matthew Chamberlain faced up to his desire to act. The 1992 Toi Whakaari graduate has now done 50 plus screen roles, reflecting his love of the "more intimate" mediums of film and TV. His CV includes Black Sheep, Under the Mountain, Duggan, and two stints on Shortland Street - as a womanising medic, and a "grumpy, protective and dead embarrassing" Dad.

Murray Cooper, newly introduced patriarch of Shortland Street’s ginga family is every Dad — grumpy, protective and dead embarrassing. The Dominion Post's Julie Jacobson on Chamberlain's Shortland Street character, 9 November 2010
