Brian was born in the UK, and after leaving school had a short stint in the British Army and then spent the best part of the next seven years hitch hiking around Europe and the Middle East. It was during these travels and some of these unforgettable experiences that he obtained his lifelong interest in people, current affairs and politics. Having hitch hiked to Australia, he not only maintained his interest in politics but also became an actor.
Brian is a talented and versatile actor; a veteran of theatre, film and television since the early 70’s, having appeared in some of Australia’s premier television and theatre productions. He has directed numerous plays, both for children and adults, both in Sydney and in Brisbane. He is a skilled character actor, who is proficient in most British, European and American accents. Brian also co-hosted a successful music radio programme for five years.
Brian now lives in Brisbane, Australia. He is involved in community theatre, and a keen supporter of music festivals and sport (from a spectator point of view only), including undying loyalty to Liverpool Soccer Club. Brian writes poetry and is currently attempting to simultaneously write a play and a book. He’s married, with two children and two grandchildren who live at the other end of the country and who he consequently doesn’t see nearly often enough.
