Conforti's Broadway Background
In switching from Broadway to television, Conforti mentions how different the two are. She talks about her time on Broadway and explains:
"It's actually very different from television. You know, when you're performing in a show, it's live, so you only get one chance to get a message across to the audience and you only get one shot to really nail a line...but you have to be in the moment currently when you're on Broadway."
Conforti played the part of Matilda in Matilda The Musical on Broadway from July 2015 to May 2016. She also played the roles of Lousie and Rayne in Sunday in the Park With George in 2017. There, she got to work with actor Jake Gyllenhaal, who played the lead role of Georges Seurat. She looks back on her time with him and says:
"He is a very fun actor to work with. He can definitely be serious and he knows how to get into character, he knows how to set the mood for everyone, but he know how to be playful and he knows how to get everyone in a good mood."
At the age of 14, Mattea Conforti has had her share of both Broadway and television. Stay tuned to see her on season two of NOS4A2 on AMC premiering June 21st!
