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. 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.
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 03, 2013, Evans married to a non-showbiz woman, Katrina Fariñas, who is a member of a prominent political family in the Philippines.
Evans' former live-in partner Johnelline Hickins had him arrested and detained at a precinct jail in Pasig on October 21, 2012 after he allegedly hurt her and her brother during an altercation at their home, a day prior to his 26th birthday. Evans was released 2 days after on a ₱200 bail. According to the initial report, Hickins and her brother were planning a surprise birthday party for Evans when the actor and Hickins had a heated argument. Hickins fell off the stairs while she and Evans were arguing, prompting the girl's brother Juan Alberto "Yani" Carlotta to intercept. Carlotta said he tried to stop the actor from hurting his sister, who just gave birth last month, but he was kicked in the face and then held a knife to his face. 
The camp of Evans, however, denied that the actor inflicted any injury against his girlfriend and her brother.
In a statement, Evans' legal counsel Gerly Rico said there was indeed an altercation among the three but denied that the actor injured Hickins and Carlotta. Evans corrected the reports that the altercation began when he went home drunk on Saturday night after going out with friends. He said he was at home the whole evening hosting a small party for some friends. He said he and Hickins quickly got into an argument after she asked why his guests had already left. He suspects she deliberately taunted him as part of a ruse for the surprise birthday party she was planning for him.
He wanted to leave the house, he said, but Hickins tried to stop, leading to a struggle near the staircase on the second floor of the house in which Hickins tripped off and fell. Carlotta went into the rescue and got a minor scuffle with Evans but broke up immediately. Evans denied that he held a knife on him as there was no knife present on the place and that he only fought back for self defense.
Evans vowed not to reconcile with Hickins ever again after being humiliated in prison. However reports says that they were able to settle and came up to an agreement with sharing custody with their child since Evans is now married to Katrina Fariñas, who is related to the Fariñas political clan of Ilocos Norte.
