Matthew studied acting at American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco but made a career as a supervising sound editor.
Matthew Wood gives the voice to General Grievous who’s the leader of the droid army and a true evil character. On the set, the lines of general Grievous were read for the benefit of the actors. Voices of several actors were supplied and heavily modulated to be appropriate for a cyborg general. While looking for voice actors, Matthew Wood who supervised the editing, also read some lines under an alias and these were given to George Lucas for evaluation who selected it. Matthew could begin recording the lines immediately. For the voice, he took some inspiration of Eastern European and Romanian accents.
Matthew also did about 125 lines of dialogue for the Episode III videogame.”
