    I was an extra in the second series of Underbelly: A Tale of Two Cities, hence the uniform.

    Needless to say I met lots of other actors there, and one of my jobs was to take the fingerprints of Terry Clark's girlfriend when she got busted. Nice hot chick she is too!

    I've also done a few jobs on Home and Away, again as a copper. Must be the way I look or something.

    In my old job I met many of the world's top DJs such as Armin Van Buuren, Kai Tracid, Mauro Picotto, The Prodigy etc etc. They used to call me "keeper of the keys" at the superdome as I was the one who had to let them into their dressing rooms. I also operated lasers on Hi5's Planet Disco video clip.
    My sister has been an extra on Home & Away and Bluewater High. She also fronted The Days Trace who supported acts like The Living End. She is now solo and recording an album in Sydney and has played at the Peats Ridge Festival, the Vanguard etc.
    My uncle was in Danny Deckchair as the postman lmao. He still works in the film industry and has met heaps of celebrities. He worked on Peter Pan and is on the extras footage on the DVD and apparently when The Pacific comes out, there is a chance he will be in the DVD extras footage wearing a mankini ewwww :shock:
    I also live not far from George Negus, David Helfgott and Russell Crowe. Rusty & Tom Cruise rocked up on their motos to our local shop for a beer lol.
    My dad has a few claims to fame but the funniest is that he grew up with Paul Keating hehe.

    I was also at Westfield Miranda when Jennifer Hawkins had her wardrobe malfunction :lol:

    My aunties husband was Bob Hawke's cousin. I hung out with Dave Grohl and the rest of the Foo Fighters when they were touring Australia about 18 months ago (they wanted to meet some Aussie wildlife). I grew up around motorcycle racing, so I've met Wayne Gardner, Mick Doohan, Casey Stoner, Chris Vermeulen, Jeremy McGrath, Chad Reed, Mike Metzger, Mike Jones etc. Went for a fly in Barry Sheene's helicopter when I was about 10, and a couple of years later went for a drive with him around Lakeside Raceway in his Ferrari Testarosa. And I've helped move crocodiles with Steve Irwin a while ago...
