“The Martial Arts Kid” Producer James Wilson Says He Is “Proud” Of Matthew Ziff, “He Was Terrific In A Difficult Role”

  |   Actor, The Martial Arts Kid

Ziff threw himself into the role and literally transformed himself into a believable, intimidating bully – and the result is much buzz and acclaim for his performance, which earned him a Best Supporting Actor award at the Sunscreen Film Festival last month.

James Wilson says the accolades Ziff is receiving for his performance are well deserved.

“We were all proud of Matthew Ziff winning Best Supporting Actor”, he says. “He was terrific in a difficult role as Bo the Bully.”

“He worked hard for this role”, James Wilson adds. “Changed his appearance by gaining (over) 20 pounds, cutting his hair and growing a goatee.”
