The actor best known for his role as ‘Super Hans’ in Channel 4’s Peep Show has been declared bankrupt.
Insolvency News can exclusively reveal that 45-year-old Matt King was declared bankrupt in Brighton County Court last week at his own request.
The news comes despite the actor enjoying a flurry of work over the past 12 months such as his role in new British comedy Starlings, which he co-wrote with Steve Edge. The first episode of the second series is due to air for the first time tonight on subscription channel Sky 1.
King’s acting prowess has led to a host of award nominations. His on-going role in Peep Show led to his nomination for a prestigious Golden Nymph award at the Monte-Carlo Television Festival and he won ‘most outstanding performance by an actor’ at the 2011 ASTRA Awards for his work in Australian drama Spirited.
He has also accumulated a substantial filmography as an actor, with appearances in blockbuster films such as Bronson, Made in Dagenham and RocknRolla, directed by Guy Ritchie.
