So proud of teacher Damian Walshe-Howling News. Can’t say we are surprised though. Damian has been entertaining us on our screens for over 20 years. His recent role on Jack Irish yet small, has had a huge effect.
The Herald Sun described it as follows. ‘As a brief but telling illustration, Damian Walshe-Howling has one scene in the final season of Jack Irish as a drug-addicted, bile-spitting crim. The vigour Walshe-Howling brings to it could strip paint off the walls of the police interview room where he attacks his interrogator, detective inspector Phil Maitland, played by Gary Sweet, who invests his role with a fine, reptile-still and menacing quality.’
This is a wonderful example that no matter how small the role, always go for it if it speaks to you. If it has an impact on you it will impact your audience.
