Behind the scenesEdit



  • The official Anne of Green Gables website describes him as, Matthew lives at Green Gables with his sister Marilla. He is shy, hard working and kind. Matthew is generous and gentle and although he doesn't know much about girls, he doesn't mind spoiling Anne. Matthew and Anne quickly discover that they are kindred spirits. Anne brings out Matthew's more sensitive side and they enjoy spending time together. Matthew quietly encourages Anne's imagination and enjoys her fanciful stories. When she vows to become more reasonable and stop getting into trouble, he reminds her not to forget the "romance" that her creativity and spirit bring.[2]
