Amongst his standout parts Todd would count Larry in BURN THIS (Sydney Theatre Co.) for which he was nominated for The Critics Circle Award and more recently Jeeter in LAST OF THE BOYS by Steven Dietz at The Southwark Playhouse followed by Michael Shaun-Hastings in Jordan Tannahill’s acclaimed LATE COMPANY which transferred from the Finborough Theatre for a sell out run at The Trafalgar Studios. Todd has also enjoyed working at The Orange Tree Theatre, The Young Vic and Birmingham Rep amongst others. His film and television main credits and recurring roles are many - among them the lead characters of Bluey in FIELDS OF FIRE, Lloyd Osbourne in TUSITALA, John Steinbeck IV in FRANKIE’S HOUSE, George Armstrong in MELBA and Bobby Jefferson in BEAVER FALLS. It was in Todd’s second year at drama school when the penny dropped. He was minutes from going on for his first performance as Mercutio when his already much admired director and head of acting instantly became hugely admired when he addressed the company with these words: “You have done all the work. You’re fully prepared. Now you’re perfectly entitled to go out there and LIE WITH AUTHORITY.” Todd has faithfully adhered to that motto ever since in a determined, sincere and genuine quest for truth in acting. Now in the fifth decade of his career, Todd began by going immediately into an Aussie soap upon graduating from high school to play... a character who was attending his last year of high school. He was not to discard his school uniform for another year when he was accepted into the National Institute of Dramatic Art in Sydney. He knew he wanted to be an actor when at the age of eight he asked his mother if she could enrol him for classes at a drama school for children which he spotted on their travels about town. Todd distinctly remembers giving his tree blowing in the wind and receiving strong praise for it. It was all the lauding he needed at that young age to cement his desire to become an actor.
