Joseph Absolom (born 16 December 1978 in Greenwich, London) is an English actor best known for playing Matthew Rose in the popular BBC soap opera "EastEnders".


Joe made his acting debut with the 1991 film "Antonia and Jane" which was followed by roles in several television series such as "The Bill", "Dangerfield" and "Silent Witness".

He joined the popular BBC Soap opera "EastEnders" in 1997 and the storyline which gained him recognition was the Saskia Duncan murder storyline in 1999 when his character Matthew Rose was wrongly imprisoned for the murder by the real culprit Steve Owen (played by Martin Kemp). His character's last appearance was aired in February 2000, and he won the Best Actor Award at the British Soap Awards. On several occasions, there has been press speculation that Absolom will return to EastEnders, but he has insisted that he has no intention of ever returning to the show.

Since leaving "EastEnders", he played the leading role in the 2002 British horror film "Long Time Dead" and has played supporting roles in ITV television series such as "Doc Martin" and "Vincent".

He has recently starred in "The Bill" this year
