INTRODUCTION & WELCOME BY SIMON ABRAHAMS
Lex Marinos, a familiar face on stage and screen, reflects on the demands his work has made on his body, mind and family; and pronounces it on a life well lived. As an Australian-born Greek he played undefined ‘ethnic’ stereotypes until 1980, when he was cast as Bruno, in the TV comedy Kingswood Country (1980-84) and won the fight to use his Australian accent.
‘... if it’s what you need to do more than anything else, then it’s what you do’, he writes. ‘It’s what I do, and have done for half a century. I’ve been blessed. It’s enabled me to help raise a family, live in relative comfort, see exotic places, meet amazing people, work with wonderful artists, find friends and lovers. It’s the life I’d hoped for, and it’s been my way of trying to understand the world.’
A lasting record of his talent is his acclaimed role as Manolis in the ABC TV series The Slap (2011).
