Growing up in Belgium, the son of actor Julien Schoenaerts, Matthias Schoenaerts never thought to enter the family business.
He wanted to be a professional soccer player.
So when, exactly, did he realize he could pay rent by acting in films such as 2011’s best foreign language Oscar nominee Bullhead or as a bare-knuckle brawler opposite Marion Cotillard in the heartbreaking 2012 French drama Rust and Bone?
“Yesterday. As we speak,” jokes the actor, 37. “I never dreamed of being an actor. At a certain point, that’s what I wanted to do. Before you know it, you graduate from the Academy of Dramatic Arts. Damn, I’m an actor.”

With a trio of big films out at the same time, he is the hottest thing to come out of Belgium — ever
For some weeks now, Britain’s billboards have been valiantly struggling with Matthias Schoenaerts’s name: all those vowels spelt out on adverts for Suite Française, released last month; A Little Chaos, earlier this month; and next up, Far from the Madding Crowd. In Thomas Vinterberg’s luscious take on the Thomas Hardy novel, released on Friday, Schoenaerts’s Gabriel Oak shadows Carey Mulligan’s impetuous Bathsheba. Not that he has seen any of the media blitzkrieg: the Belgian actor, 37, has only just arrived at his London hotel for the film’s premiere. “I’m like the Space Invader all of a sudden,” he says, miming a spaceship hovering over us all.
Even more additional images of “Far From The Madding Crowd” have been added in our gallery. Links and previews can be found below. The Telegraph (U.K.) also published a very interesting article on the behind the scenes process of the movie. Excerpts related to Matthias can be found after the jump.

Matthias on Carey: “There’s a tender strength that she has. A gentleness and a softness but an extreme force that comes with it.”
Carey on fainting during a scene: “Matthias thought I was acting. I dropped to my knees, then sort of keeled over to the side. It’s quite hard to faint in a corset.”
