Here’s everything you need to know about Matilda De Angelis (including her early life, profession, and more)

Ladies and gentlemen, put your hands up for Italian actress Matilda De Angelis. By now we are guessing, all of you know that she is an actress by profession. In addition to this, she is also a singer. She was born on September 11, 1995, in Bologna, Emilia-Romagna, Italy. At the moment, she is 27 years old.

When we shed some light on Matilda’s connection with music it goes way back to her childhood. She started playing guitar and violin at the young age of 13. Back in the day, she went to the liceo scientifico “Enrico Fermi” in Bologna. In the year 2011, she started singing in the band Rumba de Bodas. The band even worked together on an album named Karnaval Fou which was released in the year 2014.

During a 2021 interview with Variety magazine, De Angelis stated that she hasn’t given up her music career for acting instead, she has prioritized her acting ambitions in the last few years.

Then, the Italian Race actress said, “In life, there are different phases and priorities. I haven’t ‘given up’ anything for acting, it’s a choice and I keep making my choices every day. I could also take a break and concentrate on music or sculpture, or hiking in the mountains.”

When did Matilda De Angelis make her acting debut?

As per hitc.com, Matilda made her professional acting debut in the year 2013. In an earlier interview with Variety, she confessed that when she first moved to Rome, still a teenager, she was “pissed off at the world,” fresh off auditions for her debut film “Italian Race,” directed by Matteo Rovere.

At that time, The Undoing star told the publication, “I felt ‘ripped away’ from my life. A director comes along and says: ‘You are the lead actress in my new movie.’ But you have never studied acting, you don’t expect it. I’m a slight perfectionist, which means I don’t like to do things I’m not prepared to do. Besides, I was afraid. When I met Gianni, I was angry because I was scared. He understood I wasn’t an actress; I was a human being, too.”

Then, Matilda mentioned that it’s good to keep some secrets as an actor. She went on to say, “Cinema builds imaginary worlds so that people can dream. I believe that the actor has the need to preserve their intimacy in order not to reveal all the tricks.”

The Italian actress further added, “But times have changed: the divide between what’s private and public becomes increasingly vague. Some actors expose themselves more as this instrument of empathy, to raise awareness of the topics that are closest to them. I try to balance these two aspects.”
