If you’ve never seen a film starring Roy Billing, you have no business listening to this Podcast.
We’re joking of course, but Billing has been acting since the 80’s and has starring in many Australian films including The Dish, Rabbit-Proof Fence, Charlie & Boots, Mystery Road and Occupation. Billing’s Australian television credits go all the way back to E-Street and A Country Practice and include Home and Away, Always Greener, Packed to the Rafters, and more recently Underbelly and Jack Irish, two roles Billings tells are are the ones he gets recognised for the most.
In this Podcast, Billing joins host Matthew Eeles to discuss launching his career in New Zealand where he was born, moving to Australia and what the local film industry was like at the time, and his latest film, Never Too Late.
Never Too Late follows four Vietnam veterans famous for escaping a POW camp. Now they must break out of the nursing home from hell to fulfil their unrealised dreams.
Never Too Late stars Jacki Weaver, Jack Thompson, Shane Jacobson, James Cromwell, Dennis Waterman, Roy Billing and Max Cullen and is directed by Mark Lamprell.
Never Too Late is in cinemas from October 22.
