Erik Thomson is one of my favourite actors. I’ve enjoyed most of Erik’s work, with Packed to the Rafters, Aftertaste and The Furnace being among my favourites.
Thomson is one of Australia’s most beloved actors, becoming a household name thanks to mega-popular shows like All Saints and Rafters.
Thomson is currently on a promotional junket for his new New Zealand film, Coming Home in the Dark, so I thought this would be a great opportunity to invite him on to this Podcast while he’s in interview-mode.
In this episode we take a deep dive into Erik’s career and discuss everything from Pacific Drive to High Tide, All Saints, Packed to the Rafters and Back to the Rafters, and of course Aftertaste – a TV series in which Erik gives one of his best ever performances.
We wrap it all up by discussing a few of Erik’s latest films – The Furnace, How to Please a Woman and Blueback all of which were filmed in Western Australia.
Of course, there is a small mention of Coming Home in the Dark which you can find out more about with a quick Google search.
