    ^ Don't forget "Gallipoli"!

    Watching him fall in love with Terrance Stamp's Bernadette in "Priscilla" is so sweet and, IMHO, the crux of the entire movie.

    A great, versatile actor. :(

    Awwww, I am sad to hear this. He was a good actor. Australia has a boatload of great actors.

    He seemed to be in every Australian movie at one point. Probably because he was so good. He will be missed.
