Australia Actor – Guy Pearce

Born in Cambridgeshire England, in 1967, Guy Pearce immigrated to Australia to live in Geelong, Victoria, with his family when he was three years old. Five years later, his father, a New Zealand pilot, died in a plane crash leaving his English school teacher mother to care for him and his older sister Tracey.

Even as a youngster, Guy seemed to have a clear idea of what he would end up doing in his life, shunning subjects like math and science in favor of art and music. Guy joined local theatrical groups at the age of eleven, where he appeared in amateur theater productions of The King and I, Alice in Wonderland, and The Wizard of Oz. Guy got into body building in his early teens as a way of dealing with his insecurities about himself and his naturally thin body. At the age of fifteen or sixteen, he won the “Mr. Junior Victoria” body building competition. Just two days after his final high school exam in 1985, Guy started his four year stint as hunky student turned turned teacher Mike Young on the popular Aussie soap “Neighbours” (1985), which helped turn him into a major teen idol. After his television successes in such Australian TV programs as Neighbours, “Home and Away” (1988) and “Snowy River: The McGregor Saga” (1993), Guy has since carved himself an illustrious film career which includes a contemporary rock drama Heaven Tonight (1990), a comical romantic fantasy Dating the Enemy (1996); portraying a young Errol Flynn in Flynn (1996).

Most recently he has amazed film critics and audiences alike with his magnificent performances in Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, The (1994), L.A. Confidential (1997), and Ravenous (1999). Next to acting, Guy has had a life long passion for music. In addition to singing and playing the guitar, saxophone, and piano, he has written hundreds of songs, including several that were featured in the movie Hunting (1991). Guy likes to keep his private life very private. He currently makes his home in Melbourne, Australia which is also where he married his childhood sweetheart Kate Mestitz in March of 1997.

TV Series Actor – Scott Speedman

This green-eyed, blond hunk is best known for his role as Ben Covington on the TV series Felicity. Born in London, England and raised in Toronto, Scott Speedman was born to a department store buyer father and an elementary school teacher mother and evolved into a championship swimmer.

At ages 12 and 14, Speedman was a part of the relay swim team that held the Canadian national record for the 400-meter medley. Until a neck injury forced a career change, he was even a member of the Canadian national team.

He turned to acting when a high school girlfriend dared him to go on Speaker’s Corner and declare his interest in playing the role of Boy Wonder in Batman Forever, which was casting in Toronto at the time. While he didn’t get the part, the casting director put him in touch with an agent.

That, in turn, led to roles in the TV series Nancy Drew and the television film Net Worth. He also started attending classes at New York’s Neighborhood Playhouse theater school, but dropped out and ended up crashing on his mother’s Toronto couch. He then hooked up with David Rotenberg, a novelist and former Broadway director, and started studying at Toronto’s Equity Showcase Theatre.

That commitment led Speedman to a role in the short film Can I Get a Witness, developed at the Norman Jewison Film Center in Toronto, which was screened at the 1996 Toronto International Film Festival. And ultimately, in a fortuitous twist of fate, Speedman landed the coveted role of “the sensitive jock” on Felicity.
