One thing that is crystal clear during our conversation is that this 31-year-old is a completely home-grown human without much fuss. He works part-time as a fitness instructor and hangs out with friends and family while auditioning for roles in Canada and the US. Julian continues: “I initially thought I’d be a tennis player and Georg was always the entertainer in the family, so it was a bit tough at first. Dad had a big camera and we would make up skits. I’ve always had a bit of a funny bone. I did drama in school and went on to do sports/science at university, then modelled in Perth and China. I went to Europe in 2013 and came back to do a Larry Moss masterclass. I then spent a year at the 16th Street Actors Studio. Acting isn’t an easy road to choose so you’ve got to have a sense of self-worth that is separate from it.”
Now that’s an actor with his head screwed on right. From Red Hill to Riverdale with a touch of Canada and courage in between.
