Matilda is first seen along with her twin brother, Henry when they arrive at the caravan park to return home to live with their mother Beth and stepfather-to-be, Rhys Sutherland (Michael Beckley).
Matilda is initially unimpressed with the bay, as she is used to a posh boarding school and is frequently rude and sarcastic to Rhys' children and nephew, Max (Sebastian Elmaloglou).
That same year, Evans had a recurring role on the Nine Network children's series Snobs, which centres on two unlikely friends from two different worlds. Evans has since appeared in other shows such as Comedy Inc., Cops L. She portrayed Matilda Hunter, a privileged teenage girl who is forced to move to the Summer Bay Caravan Park.
Evans was nominated for a Logie Award and an Inside Soap Award for the role.
Matilda is the daughter of Beth and Jack Hunter and sister to Scott, Kit, Robbie and Henry.
