Hi, my name is Ethan Mathias and I'm a neurodiverse actor, singer, dancer, and musician—I'm most known for starring as Caleb in the feature "Miracle On Christmas."
I have the most fun playing characters with lots of energy and larger-than-life personalities, because you can really be expressive and energetic.
I also love energizing other people on-set to see them get happier! No matter how intense things can get on set, I can always maintain my energy and light and lift up others with me.
Those colleagues and fans of my work always speak to my energy and light, both on-camera and on-stage.
I believe that something you don’t get is an opportunity to get something better.
I spent early April filming an episode of Evil Lives Here for Discovery Network. He got to play the lead in this episode and enjoyed working with the amazing cast and production team. It should be airing later this season.
Ethan is the youngest in a blended family of 11 children. Growing up surrounded by teenagers, Ethan has developed a sense of humor and interest in things that are not typical to the average 11-year-old/6th grader. With this background, Ethan brings a unique, intuitive approach to characterization when acting.
Through school and community choirs and private voice lessons, Ethan has developed a love and talent for singing. Favorite music includes Broadway Showtunes as well as artists like The Beatles, Billy Joel, David Bowie, and Elton John. Ethan has studied piano for several years. His current piano teacher not only teaches him via standard piano books, but he also teaches Ethan to play songs that he hears and likes via chord charts.
Since kindergarten, Ethan has attended a Spanish Immersion school. Outside of one hour of designated "English" time, Ethan's entire school day and every subject are learned in Spanish. His new virtual school does not offer immersion, but he is taking HIgh School level Spanish to learn more of the technical aspects of Spanish. He is able to read, sing, and converse in Spanish.
Ethan is part of the gifted and talented program at school and LOVES math (he is currently taking high school Algebra 2) - so learning lines and new material comes naturally to him!
Ethan is now learning in a full-time virtual school, so his schedule is very flexible and he is open for auditions and projects!
