1 I think I was about 18 before I decided I wanted to pursue acting. I went to drama school in Western Australia when I was 19.
2 I had wanted to be a fish farmer, to be honest with you. I wanted to be an agriculturist. I wanted to have my own fish farm. I was also contemplating surfboard building.
3 ‘McLeod’s Daughters’ was my first regular job out of drama school, and my first full-time role. That was great because I learned a lot, in terms of working in front of the camera.
4 On his character Gannicus: He’s a bit of the anti-hero in a way I guess. He riles against authority. A big part of the character is playing the differences between him and Spartacus. I didn’t want to create a character that would be similar to Spartacus because I thought that would be boring. Essentially I think I have the same moral core, which is the thing that they see in each other that attracts them to each other eventually.
5 Often too many expectations are put on by society as to what we’re supposed to look like and it’s fed to people at an age that’s too young.
6 I think there’s always pieces of yourself that bleed into your character. That’s inevitable.
7 When I’m not working, I weight train three times a week and swim and surf as much as I can – in the summer, you usually find me in the water.
8 You always draw inspiration from your family or your parents if they’ve proven to be inspirational. My mother is someone who’s always been inspirational to me.
9 New Zealand is a pretty no-nonsense place to work, like Australia. I mean it doesn’t falter to anyone.
10 I’m passionate about being an actor, but I’m definitely not passionate about being a sex symbol.
