His family went on to move quite often during his teenage years because of his father's job, and in June 1990, Eddie graduated from North Hunterdon High School in New Jersey.

After receiving a degree in theater performance, Eddie headed to Los Angeles to pursue an acting  career.

Career:

In 1999, Eddie Matos made his television acting debut in an episode of the ABC/UPN sitcom “Clueless” called “Nice Girls Finish Last.” His luck started to change in 2001 when Matos landed his first multi episode role on the daytime drama “The Bold and the Beautiful,” where he played the role of Charlie Espinada. It was followed by a role in the short lived teen comedy/drama series “All About Us” (2001), in which he portrayed Steven Castelli, and a small part in the festival screened movie “Wanderlust” (2001), which marked the actor's big screen debut.

However, Matos did not gain a big break until he joined the cast of the ABC soap opera “Port Charles,” a spin-off of the serial “General Hospital.” He played the role of Ricky Garza from 2001 until the show was canceled in 2003.  

Matos next made guest appearances in television shows like “Tru Calling” (2004, as Charlie), “Charmed” (2004, as Paramedic Garcia), “Women in Law” (2006, as James), “In Justice” (2006, as Cruz Salgado) and “Pepper Dennis” (2006, as Marcus) before landing the role of Professor Pete Marquez on ABC's “General Hospital.” He recurred on the show from September to early 2007. Matos went on to play the regular role of Henry Duque in “Cane,” opposite Jimmy Smits, Héctor Elizondo,  Nestor Carbonell, Rita Moreno and Paola Turbay. The show ran on CBS from September 25 to December 18, 2007.

After guest starring roles on “Ghost Whisperer” (2009, as Javier Torres) and “House M.D.” (2010, as Felipe), Matos joined the cast of “All My Children” in December 2010 in the role of Reverend Ricky Torres. He remained with the series until May 2011.

In 2012, Matos appeared as Cameron Fuller in an episode of “Awake” called “Kate Is Enough.” The same year, he lent his voice to the video game “Call of Duty: Black Ops II.”

Recently, in March 2013, Matos made a guest appearance as Lordan in an episode of USA Network's “Psych.”
