Ross Higgins


  1. Ray Meagher, Home and Away, TV, 1988-2013.     Not a pay day to miss… The Kingswood Country  sitcom star  tested  for Alf Stewart but lost  2,796 chapters of the Australian soap  that launched Simon Baker, Ilsa Fisher, Melissa George,  Chris Hemsworth, Heath Ledger,  Guy Pearce and Naomi Watts.  Higgins won two other (much shorter) shows, Late For School, 1992, and Bullpitt! 1997-1998,  and  was still  acting in his 80s.  Usually as… The Old Guy.
  2. Barry Humphries, Finding Nemo, 2002.      The name, of the great white shark was obvious. Bruce. After the Jaws shark. And the cliché name of Australian guys – and all 15 contenders were Aussies. From the stars like Humphries, Bryan Brown, Paul Hogan, Comedy Company players Kim Gyngell, Russell Gilbert, Mark Mitchell and Melbourne TV host Bert Newton to lesser known mortals: Jamie Dunn, Ross Higgins, John Jarratt, Ray Meagher, Peter Moon, Glenn Robbins and Michael Veitch.
