Matthew Knight is a Canadian actor best known for playing Brandon Russell in the fantasy comedy-drama television series “The Good Witch” and Jake Kimble in the horror film series “The Grudge.” In 2002, he made his acting debut as Peter in an episode of the Showtime drama series “Queer as Folk.” In the 2003 television film “Big Spender,” he made his debut on the big screen playing Will Burton. Brian Saunders in “Christmas in Wonderland,” Willy in “Gooby,” Trooper in “Candles on Bay Street,” and Young Francis Ouimet in “The Greatest Game Ever Played” are some of his other well-known performances. He has received seven nominations for the Young Artist Award and two victories for his performances in “Gooby” (2009) and “Candles on Bay Street” (2006). In the comedy-horror television series “My Babysitter’s a Vampire,” which was based on the same-named film, he portrayed the title character, Ethan Morgan. Over the years, he has appeared as a guest on several television programs, including “Kojak,” “Skyland,” “The Dresden Files,” “R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour,” and “Magic City.”

Become a Star

After his older brother Jack began performing at the age of nine, Matthew Knight grew fascinated with the industry. Jack had to accompany him to the Street Time set since he was so determined to find out what his brother was doing there. The young boy’s experience had a twofold impact; while learning the specifics of the filming procedure destroyed the allure of his favorite TV shows, he instead developed an interest in the production process. He started seeing the behind-the-scenes activities instead of enjoying the shows and watching TV was never the same.

He soon changed his mind and decided he also wanted to be an actress. He had his first TV commercial audition when he was seven years old, but he didn’t get the part since he was too afraid to do anything. He did, however, soon have successful commercial auditions for Hershey and Kentucky Fried Chicken. In 2002, he co-starred in his first television performance with his older brother Jack on the Showtime drama series “Queer as Folk.” The next year, he was cast in his first film role as the lead character’s son in the television film “Big Spender.” His portrayal as Jake Kimble in the supernatural horror movie “The Grudge 2” in 2006 led to his subsequent rise to fame.

Playing a Variety of Roles

Matthew Knight has selected a variety of distinct roles in comedies, dramas, and other films because he enjoys assuming different personas when portraying different characters. He was so worried about avoiding being typecast after acting in a few horror movies, such as “The Grudge” series and the 2007 horror-action movie “Skinwalkers,” that he chose to play the part of Ethan Morgan in “My Babysitter’s a Vampire” series, which tries to parody the horror genre.

In the 2005 biographical sports movie “The Greatest Game Ever Played,” he played the younger version of Shia LaBeouf’s main character, golf champion Francis Ouimet. He was cast as Tom the kitten in the animated children’s television series “Peep and the Big Wide World” that same year. The show ran for five seasons. His performance as Trooper, the protagonist’s son, in the Hallmark Hall of Fame television film “Candles on Bay Street” (2006) garnered him his first “Young Artist Award” nomination and victory in 2007. Alicia Silverstone performed the lead role. In 2007, he played the lead in the Canadian-American comedy “Christmas in Wonderland.” Alongside Robbie Coltrane, who provided the voice of the titular character Gooby, a real-life teddy bear, he played Willy, an 11-year-old child with autism, in the 2009 Canadian comic fantasy-drama “Gooby.” 2010’s “Young Artist Award” for “Best Performance in a DVD Film” was given to him for the part.
