The Late Bloomer Actor

Arts & Culture Podcasts

This podcast series will focus on the journey of late bloomer actors, the trials and tribulations of starting on a journey in the acting world that many (or dare I say, most) actors commence in their early 20’s or 30’s, and usually via a 3- or 4-year formal drama school education straight out of senior high school. I will endeavour to bring on guests that are fellow late bloomer actors to learn from their acting journey. And also, industry guests that can advise us late bloomer actors on how to navigate the world of acting in their particular domain, whether that be casting, acting classes, indie or student films or just how to navigate the world of social media and self-marketing.

Quid Pro Quo with Tim Hawkins

6/14/2022
Episode 6 is with Adelaide based actor, Tim Hawkins. Tim is an Adelaide identity. Having started out young in the acting world, but then realising he needed a 'back-up' plan to pay the bills, he learned the backstage craft of lighting, sound and general entertainment facilitation. But he was always drawn towards the front of the camera, acting, and having a solid background in the crew delivery area, and a little more 'mature' he was able to focus on himself in his later years and get back...

Milking It with Andrew Hearle

5/14/2022
Episode 5 is with Andrew Hearle, actor and CEO of the online drama club and acting resource site StageMilk. This discussion went in a completely different direction to what I originally thought it would, and in a very enlightening way. Andrew’s insights into acting in general and with a focus of us late bloomers was just fantastic. So many times in my discussions about my journey as a late bloomer actor, I bring up the negatives of starting acting at such a later part of one's life, but...

Character Building with Greg Apps

4/14/2022
Episode 4 with casting director Greg Apps and host of the online acting training resource The Audition Technique. I consider Greg a great friend and mentor as he has been a part of my acting journey almost from the commencement of my journey. Greg has a wonderfully long history in the Australian television and movie scene, as well as having been involved in some great international productions. He is a wealth of knowledge for actors particularly in the world of auditions. This is where the...

Tik Tok Spiderman with Stephen Walker

3/14/2022
This episode introduces Stephen Walker. Brisbane based actor and recent Tik Tok viral sensation for his spider catching 'expertise'. We discuss the change in the film making processes from the 70/80s to today and how he has become an all-rounder (aka 'slashee') by working with Channel 7 in Sydney. We also delve into the financial arena and how having a sound financial plan has led him to having a satisfactory passive income which allows for him to now focus on his acting full-time. And...

On Screen Wife with Jacqui Darbyshire

2/14/2022
My guest today is a great friend of mine having started out on the late bloomer acting journey with me in 2013 where we met on day 1 of a 12 month acting course in Adelaide. We like to refer to each other as onscreen husband and wife after we performed our first stage experience together for a scene from the play ‘Speaking In Tongues’ by Andrew Bovell. In 2015 she was fortunate to partake in a full-time year long acting program with Melbourne’s ‘Film & Television Studio International’. She...

Cut Throat with Eva Grzelak

1/14/2022
This (my first episode) is with Eva Grzelak, a great friend of mine having met in 2015 as supporting actors on a MAPS student film in Adelaide, South Australia. A short film called ‘Frequency’ – arguably one of the best short films I’ve been involved in so far, thanks to the up-and-coming Director Rebecca Duncker. Eva was born in Cheshire England, a year before me and immigrated to Australia in the mid 70’s with her parents. Her employment background is as an accomplished audio-visual...
