Matthew stated now that he is in his late 30s, he would like to get more opportunities to improve his career.
When mentioned he previously left TVB due to lack of opportunities to play the lead, Matthew responded, "I used to be a blank canvas. I didn't know how to deal with a lot of things before I went out. There are many things that are right and wrong. After leaving, I have to fight for many things by myself and cherish many opportunities."
