Matthew "Matt" Nicolas Evans (born October 22, 1986) is a Filipino actor of American descent who was a contender of the Philippine reality television show Pinoy Big Brother: Teen Edition 1. He rose to fame through his Filipino teleseryes Komiks Presents: Da Adventures of Pedro Penduko, Tanging Yaman and Rosalka. He studied college in Far Eastern University, Manila.
Matt is currently part of ABS-CBN's Star Magic contract artists.
Evans was born to father Thalmage Eugene Evans, an American citizen, and mother Vivien Mercado Nicolas, a Filipino. He has two half siblings: Mark, who is full Filipino and Akira, who is half Japanese.
Evans resides in Quezon City, Philippines. His biological father left his mother before he was born. His father was serving in the United States Air Force at that time. He eventually found out from his uncle that his biological father had died from a heart attack on June 10, 2010.
Evans has a daughter with former partner Johnelline Hickins (daughter of former 80's sexy star, Coca Nicolas). On October 3, 2013, Evans married Katrina Fariñas, who belongs in a prominent political family in the Philippines, the Fariñas Family of Ilocos Norte. In 2014, they welcomed their first child, Hayley Marley. Evans also adopted Fariñas' son from a previous relationship, thus the child is now using the name Hayden Tyler Fariñas Evans. In 2015, Evans announced that they are expecting "baby Evans #3", Ellie Madison, who would be Fariñas' and Evans' second child together.
