And he was a "local" boy, attending Cabramatta High School, not far from where I grew up.
More recently he was starring in various Gilbert and Sullivan productions, like Pirates of Penzance:
(that's him in the tight purple pants, btw)
He went on to star in a number of tv shows, including the miniseries Against The Wind where we all fell in love with him over again.
RIP Jon, you had a grand talent to entertain and will be missed.
