FIGHT CLUB

The first rule of fight club is: you do not talk about fight club… 😜

Man, I had so much fun doing this scene!  It’s a first for Neighbours and definitely an experience I won’t forget.  It also totally embodies Kane’s fearlessness and willingness to risk it all.  After filming, I had one of the female extras go, “Are you that cocky in real life?!”.  Haha.

Huge shout-out to my boss of a scene partner Ben Hall for going all-in with me, the legend Chris ‘Cougar’ Wilson for getting us fight-ready and fellow Kiwi Guy Strachan for a killer job directing us 🥊

NEIGHBOURS

Barry Conrad-Neighbours

It’s been ridiculously hard keeping this a secret… I’m so happy to share that I’ve landed a guest role on Neighbours!

You know, I always say life is unpredictable.  But this happening (and the events leading up to it) has proven that to me so much more.  Even when the odds seem completely stacked against you, you just can’t count yourself out!

Huge thanks to everyone at Ramsay Street, Mcleod Casting and Fremantle… I’m super grateful.  Keep an eye on your TVs from next month.

Melbourne Cup – Go and Let Go

What an amazing experience filming the new VRC Melbourne Cup commercial!

Not only did I get to work with such an ace cast and crew, it was my first time ever doing wire work.  Anyone who knows me knows I’m a superhero fanatic, and doing this definitely had me living my Marvel dreams a bit (haha)!

– Directed by Sophia Banks
