John Jarratt, cult icon and one of Australia's best-loved screen actors, grew up in rural New South Wales and Queensland. These were years filled with boisterous outdoor adventures, a rollicking extended family and a collection of true friends, clouded only by his father's violent rages. After an unlikely apprenticeship at NIDA he launched a career that took him to the peaks of the film industry, from a featured role as Albert in Picnic at Hanging Rock to his career-defining embodiment of Ned Kelly. For years he was a laconic TV home improvement co-host, before reviving his film career with a nightmare-inducing performance as Mick Taylor in Wolf Creek. Along the way he fathered six children in a series of tumultuous relationships, as he struggled with the dual addiction of alcohol and house building. In his sixth decade, after a lifetime of reckless living, he has found his voice, salty but rambunctiously entertaining, and told with the confidence of a raconteur - and, finally, he has discovered personal happiness by unexpectedly reuniting with the one grand love of his life. Told with honesty and humour, this is an Australian life lived large, filled with passion and pain. Extensive National publicity John Jarratt is a popular Australian television and film actor, producer and director, and has achieved international fame as Mick Taylor from the Wolf Creek film series. #
