More Australian Gossip

I've been binge watching several Australian TV shows like All Saints, Packed to the Rafters, The Heart Guy and now Underbelly, which I love. So naturally I've been curious about some of the stars I've seen on TV and movies from Australia.

Would someone from down under be able to answer my questions?

Is Martin Lymes from All Saints still in jail for sexual assault?

What is Georgie Parker doing these days? I loved her as Terry Sullivan; I watched All Saints up until her character was written out. I hated the reboot as an emergency room drama.

I remember a really cute actor named Damien Rice, who played one of the first gay characters on Australian TV

They have such good quality shows so far. Why do so many of the actors come to the US? It must be ultra competitive down there.

Georgie's on Home and Away. Has been for a few years now.

OP, one of the reasons so many Aussies go to the US is a series regular gig can pay around 10 times as much as at home...a couple of years on a US show and they’ve funded a few decades of what is sure to be near-constant unemployment, if and when they return home.

Aussie TV used to produce good shows back in the 80s and 90s, when there were government incentives for home-grown content...nowadays, the rules have changed and there is slim pickings between Neighbours, Home and Away and the (very) occasional cable success like Wentworth or A Place to Call Home

Martin Lynes is still in jail for raping a woman in her house. Or she was a real estate agent trying to sell a house to him. Don’t know what AUS sexual assault laws are like but I think that he has to be registered as a sex offender.

Hugh Sheridan has come out, but with the qualifier “I’m still attracted to women”. Whatever. Those flames can be seen from space.

Luke Pegler allegedly has quit acting to become a chef. Forty and still unmarried. Still cute as hell but balding.

While you're on old Aussie shows, OP, give Police Rescue a look.

A lot of strapping young Aussie blokes and a couple of feisty women carrying out daring rescues, many of them based on real events; some really good scripts (9-11 is a shameless ripoff IMO); and the bonus of young guest stars who have since become well known internationally - Ben Mendelsson and Miranda Otto spring to mind but there are heaps of others.

So many questions!

The reports were that Ryan Corr was a RL drug addict (heroin I think) and lost jobs over it, but he made a comeback some time later. Because of Covid I can't be sure whether he remains on track but I do hope so. He's very talented. (And is also in Love Child, which had a brilliant young cast: the best in recent years apart from maybe Underbelly Season 1). R24, Miranda Tapsell is also in the movie The Sapphires, which is well worth seeing.

Judy Davis is famous here for being prickly too, R28, but not bitchy. Just quick to take offence. Has been since she was very young. I will say her marriage has lasted forever, though. As an actress she's awesome, in the literal sense of the word. In Mystery Road she walks and talks as the character: neither voice nor gait is her own, yet both seem natural. I've seen her on stage in theatres large and tiny, and she's brilliant in every setting.

You're right about Aaron Pederson. The camera loves him, but he needs a really good director to act at his best. (Avoid Season 2 of MR, which lacks Davis and a halfway decent director or script.) In RL he's admirable, though. He is devoted to his brother, who has cerebral palsy and intellectual disabilities, and has taken responsibility for him since Aaron was a kid. He also takes his role as an Aboriginal role model seriously. US-ians need to remember Indigenous people are only 2-3% of the Australian population, so kids really need role models. Judy Davis told the press, about Mystery Road, “It was not simply an acting gig for him, but a means to an end — trying to give courage and belief to the young Aboriginal kids who flocked around him constantly. He was like a rock star — which in a sense he is.”

R32, Gina Riley and Jane Turner are Australia's French and Saunders, in the sense that they have been close friends and also working partners since their 20s (they're turning 60 around now). They've worked together in ensembles much more than F&S, though. Both have long marriages. Gina's daughter Maggie McKenna starred in the original stage production of Muriel's Wedding, which is a musical: it was a hit and she was a very big hit. Quite likely to become a DL icon down the track if she keeps going. For Tasteful Friends fans, I've linked to the Melbourne house Jane Turner and her husband recently sold - very Not Fountain Lakes.

Ooo, looks quite ritzy and effluent, R38. Very cool to hear that Muriel’s Wedding (another Aussie fave) was adapted as a musical and that Gina’s daughter starred in it. Come to think of it, if I was going to make a musical of Muriel’s Wedding, Gina Riley would be my dream casting for Betty Heslop, Betty IS what would become of Kim twenty five years down the line, were it not for Kim’s pugnacious narcissism - plus she’s got a great voice and I’m sure Betty would get a “Losing my Mind” style torch song late in the second act. And then of course, I’d want Jane Turner for Deidre Chambers, who is for all intents and purposes a malevolent Kath Day Knight.

R39 Ben Tari had some really suspect storylines when he was on All Saints. In one episode a teenage patient, struggling with his sexuality, got an erection while Jared prepped him for an operation . In another episode Jared helped treat a patient who sustained a serious rectal injury after he was penetrated with a sharp object while being hazed. I had no idea Jared was raped until now. Given the fact that Ben himself appears to be a gay man, it all seems a bit odd.

I have a strong memory of David Campbell from 1996. He was nude on onstage in 'Love Valour Compassion' and he played gay in another show called 'Only Heaven Knows'. He was 22 years old and fresh-faced (though there was rumour he was the bastard son of an awful Scottish sot.

My second memory is from about ten years later at the Mardi Gras party. He and his father were both drunk and off their faces. They were accompanied by their Hong Kong girls, they jumped out of a taxi while their entourage ensured they weren't bothered by the gays, brushing them aside as they went to the VIP Area.

Kamahl has been getting a lot of press the last couple of days due to racism he endured on Hey Hey It's Saturday back in the 1970s/1980s.

I never watched the show but I not surprised by things people told me. And know that Kamahl is speaking out he is getting told to 'get over it'. He was fucking humiliated in front of hundreds of thousands of people - why the fuck should he get over it.

Never heard any goss on Richard Roxburgh: no gay rumours, no diva behaviour. He's been married only once - for 16 years so far - to Silvia Colloca, whom he met on that Dracula movie, and who now fronts an Italian cooking show on TV. Three kids. They're not inner city hipsters: they live on Sydney's Northern Beaches, an area coveted for its combination of gorgeous scenery and a relaxed beachside lifestyle.

Before Colloca he dated Miranda Otto for a while. He's a very highly esteemed stage actor (a stunning Hamlet in the mid-90s). Apart from Rake, he has also done several prestige TV mini-series in which his performances have won big acclaim. He's intelligent in a way not a lot of actors are: he had an Economics degree before he went to NIDA and he is able to talk about Shakespearean and Chekhovian roles like a director rather than an actor. He directed the movie Romulus My Father, starring Eric Bana. In his spare time he has written at least one children's book.

Both Roxburgh and David Wenham were in Moulin Rouge. Roxburgh had the far larger role, as the wicked Duke.

It's absolutely true that there was a lot of sexist and racist humour on Australian TV, as there was throughout society, in the 1970s. In the 60s and early 70s a lot of the writers were older guys who had written for the vaudeville stage in the 30s and 40s. Hey! Hey! indulged in that kind of humour too, but they weren't the only show to denigrate Kamahl. Although most of the slights were from a racist angle, I think at the time it was just the lazy way to do what the performers really wanted, which was to take him down a peg - not because he was black but because he was conceited. Performers of colour like Marcia Hines and Chelsea Brown doubtless scored some racist "jokes" too, but on nothing like the scale of those aimed at Kamahl. You could see the genuine affection for them.

All I'll say is, on Kamahl's This is Your Life the only prominent Australian "showbiz personality" to appear was...Rupert Murdoch.

P.S. Somers is insufferable too, in exactly the same way as Kamahl. Nobody watched Hey! Hey! to see him.

Years ago he announced to the media he would not marry his good lady wife unless those poor homosexuals could do the same.

Four years ago he announced to the media that he would not procreate with his good lady wife because it's 'bad for the environment'.

Scott Morrison is managing NOTHING during the epidemic. Everyone knows if it weren't for the State Premiers we'd be in the same boat as the US and the UK.

It was somewhat surprising that his government put stimulus into the economy as soon as the pandemic hit (nobody had judged them as Keynesian), but even that was not well managed across affected industries, and the stopping of the benefits has been done in a completely arbitrary manner. He keeps warbling on about opening the borders again, even though most people were meant to have the Astra Zeneca vaccine which doesn't protect against the South African variant. The man is a moron. Fortunately he offended the States last week so they're now elbowing him out of the calamitous mess he's made of vaccine acquisition and distribution and taking it over.

Years ago a PBS station where I live began broadcasting "The Doctor Blake Mysteries," starring Craig McLachlan - a show whose early seasons were excellent, it did become more twee over time.

Anyway, McLachlan was hit with numerous accusations that he acted inappropriately with a number of female actresses on stage when he was playing Dr. Frank N Furter onstage in the The rocky Horror Show. I think the accusations were made back in 2018 or 2019?

Is McLachlan's career really over? Has he been cancelled? The court case is over, he's been cleared of charges, (I think).

And yes, I know that there was an attempt to revive the cancelled Dr. Blake program by having Jean take over the mystery investigations...

"They" being Aboriginal people, R348. So, no.

"Country" used in that way is from Indigenous culture, which had 250 different languages, plus many dialects. The word has been translated into English so the audience doesn't have to learn the language of the area to which it is being welcomed, but "country" does not mean Australia. It means the land of the Aboriginal nation to which you are being welcomed (if Sydney CBD, the land of the Gadigal people of the Eora nation). Aboriginal culture is deeply anchored in land, so it means a lot more than the real estate. It means 60,000+ years of ancestry, of produce, of climate knowledge and so on.

Yeah, "uber-prepared Australian actors" usually doesn't include those who come from Home and Away. Not detracting from C Hemsworth's professionalism, which appears to be high, nor the talents of some of the character-part players over the years, but being a blond beach bum god, or the teen female equivalent, is the main reason you get on that show. I don't know whether they still do, but they used to cast out of Iron Man competitions on Sydney's beaches. (That casting gig is a great job for a DLer.)

The uber-prepared ones are NIDA and WAAPA grads, mainly. You do sometimes see them early in their careers on TV shows of modest merit, but when they finally get a break they have three years of heavy training behind them. Sarah Snook was on Packed to the Rafters, the show that also gave us Hugh Sheridan and Jessica Marais (Magic City). All NIDA grads.

Has anyone had Shaun Micallef? He's gotta be the most handsome daddy on Australian TV in decades. Speaking of Australian daddies, is anyone else obsessed with David Boon? Major bi vibes from him

You mean Joel Jackson, R377.

You can look out for him in The Newsreader with Anna Torv, coming to Australian TV screens soon and no doubt a streaming service near you thereafter.

Are Baz Luhrmann and his wife Catherine Martin really serious cokeheads?

Watching Joel Jackson in the miniseries about Peter Allen. The boy who plays Allen as a kid is pretty good. Joel is kind of cute too. I've seen him sing on YouTube a few times as well.

I doubt Baz and Catherine are really serious about anything (except, in her case, about sets and costumes).

Looks like Luke Pegler HAS retired from acting…all of his YouTube videos and most of his photos are gone from the internet.

Watching SEA PATROL on Tubi…what a ridiculous show. But some of the actors are foxy looking. But those plot lines though…every week someone gets shot, taken hostage or receive some life threatening illness or injury. Who wrote this shite?

And where can I get more Ian Stenlake or Conrad Coleby?

You're most likely to see Ian Stenlake in a stage musical, R386, but he's 52 now. I believe Conrad Coleby is in DL fave A Place to Call Home.

I intend to rewatch APTCH again. It has to be one of the most satisfying nighttime dramas I’ve seen. Better than most of the recent US crap that I’ve seen. The women characters were such badasses and the gay characters so much more well rounded.

Will I get to see Pete Murray’s bare arse if I skip thru the first few episodes of SAS Australia?

Is Costa Georgiadis gay? After reading this article I’m inclined to say yes, definitely

Why are Australian television and films financed by the government? It must be impossible for Aussie film companies to make any real money…how does it all work, exactly?
