Matthew Goode in L'Officiel Hommes Italia

“When it comes to acting, it is very limiting to be English. It was ‘Bring on the posh!’ All the parts I was being offered involved my accent or someone with money and a title.”

After playing celluloid eye candies in Brideshead Revisited (2008) and A Single Man (2009), Matthew Goode revisits handsome-ville in Park Chan-wook's thrill-fest, Stoker. He plays Charles, a man with questionable motives. Despite his dodgy reputation, the Stoker women  (played by Mia Wasikowska and Nicole Kidman) can't help themselves but be drawn in.

There's no escaping the posh curse. L'Officiel Hommes Italia features Goode in its spring/summer 2013 issue sporting sleek designer suits and patent leather shoes.
