Another Aussie in LA
Join Ansuya Nathan as she navigates the city of Angels, chatting to some of the shiniest Aussies in L.A., sharing their tales of living, working and playing on this side of the globe.

Actor, Musician, Presenter and doting father to Fox and Banjo, Bernard Curry chats with me in his salubrious home with special drop in guest Sullivan Stapleton. Well, why the hell not? Brief as his cameo may be... Bernie and I get to stuck into actorly rejection, how grounding family can be, making music with friends, doing your own stunts and why us Aussies keep getting work in the US. I don't make things too awkward. At least I don't think I don't. You be the judge.

This is Justin Hanrahan, A.C.S. – D.O.P. (screw you Americans, Imma keeping my vowels), Dad and all round top bloke. Even J.T. thinks so. From swimming with sharks – real ones, not Hollywood ones– to documenting weddings – Hollywood ones, not the other ones - to covering the Hong Kong handover to working on Oprah’s Next Big Thing to hanging out with Frank Gehry, Justin keeps his Aussie self-deprecating humour and hard work ethic about him at all times. This is how you do it peeps. This is how you have an ongoing career doing what you love. As J.T. would sing – what goes around comes around…

And we're back with the ubiquitous Damon Herriman, actor of many talents and many faces, most of them uglied down with hours in the make up chair... Oh well. Damon reveals himself to be a complete fatalist and may never act again after this chat... Oh well. We talk about getting offers from David Mamet, how surreal acting opposite Leo DeCaprio is, how awesome INXS is - very! - and the tranquil bliss of a Clint Eastwood set. Oh and I may NEVER work with Zack Snyder. EVER. OH WELL!

It's sandals, swords and sex - kinda - with Daniel Feuerriegel, star of the Starz network's Sparactus series. (Enough 'S's do ya think???). Dan and i chat about acting fashions, the ins and outs of playing gay character on cable TV, being a working actor vs. being a superstar, the 10 year overnight success and hos most recent role - playing a proper geezer. We don't quite talk about Australian politics. There are somethings not worth starting...
