David Barry Gray
Matthew Tell the son of William Tell.
7 episodes, 1987-1989
David Barry Gray as Matthew Tell, William Tell's tempestuous son. Although he inherited his father's moral fervour and concern for the oppression of the poor, he does not share his father's sense of pacifism.
He has all the restlessness and strong convictions of youth, without the caution and wisdom of age. Action is the only philosophy he understands.
His dignity and freedom are more important to him than life and with those sentiments he rushes headlong into disaster. His eagerness to show his distaste for Gessler's rule is what leads to the apple incident.
The incident that tears apart his family and makes his father a legend. His subsequent disappearance becomes the subject of Tell' travels throughout the first series, which ends with Matthew's rescue.
He has been kept as a companion to Prince Martin, the Emperor's young grandson, who felt sorry for Matthew's plight. During his time in the Citadel Matthew's hatred of Gessler and his need for revenge
only deepens. Once reunited with his father Matthew he only talks of fighting and rebellion. In his eyes the ends justifies the means and he is not above stealing from the rich if it serves his noble endeavor.
It takes the steady hand and watchful eye of his father to calm Mattew's rage. It takes many lessons in hardship and life threatening scrapes, but Matthew finally matures and learns to follow his father's
lead and think with his head not his heart. In episode 28, 'Nemesis' his heart is stolen away by Rosa (Sadie Frost) and he settles down and is never seen again. Although he was seen somewhere around
21 Jump Street. During the interview he confesed that he had a short relationship with Sadie during the recordings.
