Frank’s professional acting and writing debuts (1967) saw him gravitate to short, comic plays and revue as avenues to character flexibility. His souvenirs of past decades include:Stage: forty years in the “Fringe” scenes of Melbourne-London-Amsterdam, notably 1973-74’s character roles speaking mock-mediaeval banter in ribald farces by the amazing “Incubus” company touring around England. Plus his own revue-style shows at Carlton’s La Mama.TV: Only two favourites: (1) 1989’s TV debut in noted Australian series, Pugwall; (2) 1994/95’s Neighbours’ many episodes as comic creation, “Colin”, who bores everyone to death, even his twin brother, “Alf”.Movies: As grizzled Old China Hand “Jack”, currently in Craig Addison’s Hong Kong movie, Betel Nut Girl (2013, – Frank’s first leading role in a feature. Other loved roles in Mark Savage’s Aussie pics, Sensitive New Age Killer (2000) and Trail of Passion (2003).
