Ray Barrett

Actor

Born - 2 May 1926, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
Died - 8 September 2009

Pugnacious, sleek-haired, round-faced Australian actor with pockmarked visage, who specialised in aggressive, devil-may-care roles. Beginning to act as a child, his voice became well-known on radio before he began to embark on an international film career. His first was The Desperate Women (1958), but his face didn't become well-known until after his success in the UK TV series The Troubleshooters (later Mogul), which ran from 1965 to 1972. Other films included The Sundowners (1960), Jigsaw (1962), The Reptile (1966) and Revenge (1971. He returned to Australia in the 1970s (where he died from a brain haemorrhage), and made Don's Party (1976), The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith (1978) and several more, including Australia (2008), his last.
