Playing Actor Nick Mathews Latest Role Was Modeled after His Own Abusive Father

Actor Nick Mathews opens up to The Doctors about how his past personal struggle with abuse helped him with his latest role.

Nick stars with Sienna Miller and Alec Baldwin in “An Imperfect Murder”, where he portrays an abusive ex-boyfriend, a character he says he modeled after his own father. Nick shares he is a survivor of an abusive home and tells us his father abused him, his brother, and his mom. The actor shares as an adult he also dealt with substance abuse in an effort to numb the pain of his past abuse 

"I realized I was becoming the person I didn't want to be," Nick says, sharing therapy and a fitness routine has helped him in his healing process. 

The Doctors also note that being of service to others can also help abuse survivors heal, something Nick is doing. The actor has partnered with the Center for Hope & Safety in order to turn his past pain into purpose and he now helps young people who are struggling.

“An Imperfect Murder” is now streaming on Netflix.
