Quotes

#Quote
1I'm from Melbourne - it's a city of about 3 million - but when you're growing up in a place like that and you think it's quite a big city, and then you travel around and you go, "Actually . . . no." So when I go back now, Melbourne feels like a country town. My mum will be in like 15 cars of traffic and she'll be complaining. And I'm like, "That's not traffic, I'm sorry!"
2I always find music guys writing about love. Think of something else for a change. I'm sorry, but it's been done, and it does work and it's good and all that, but I think something else would be nice. I tend not to write lyrics, cause I'm a bad lyricist. I sort of write the music, and I can orchestrate the whole thing, but the words, [singing] "I woke up this morning . . . " Awful stuff.
3I started off with violin, then I started learning guitar, then I went to piano. But I self-taught piano just because I enjoyed it. I've always really enjoyed music. I haven't played much the last four years because I've been traveling around, so when I got his role [Neal in Uptown Girls (2003)], I had to start playing the guitar again.
4Mum decided that I could sing a bit, so she put me in a choir, which I hated and it was just a nightmare. I was a rebellious sort of choirboy.
5Like Billy [his character in Neighbours (1985)], my dad is a GP and my two eldest brothers are, too. If I wasn't acting, I would have definitely gone into medicine, too. It's totally fascinating.
6[noting that all his siblings are doctors] I'm the black sheep of the family.
7I'm glad I'm back to being a nobody.
