Damien Garvey has one for the road

TALENT: Damien Garvey

Accomplished Australian actor Damien Garvey has been a regular presence on television screens for more than 20 years.

The award winning artist might be best remembered for his roles on the ABC’s TV series Rake, and Harrow – or his earlier performances on Underbelly, Water Rats, Young Lions and Mcleod’s Daughters to name a few. Damien’s renowned versatility means he has the ability to play a wide variety of characters.

So it’s not surprising to learn the experienced performer is regularly cast to voice national TV commercials, like the new spots released for Volkswagen’s Amorok V6 Walkinshaw Series.

During ad breaks, you might also hear Damien as the voice behind the Oz Lotto commercials.

In recent times Damien has been keeping busy filming “Troppo” for the ABC, in the role of Roy Gilpin, a North Queensland CEO of a Deep Sea Mineral Mining Company. He was also cast in Peacock’s production of Joe Vs Carole – playing the dubious Doc Antle. 

Damien is currently appearing as The British East India Company’s, Director Crawley, in Disney’s “Nautilus”, a ten-part television series about the origin of Captain Nemo.

It’s been such an eventful year he says his head hurts. But the show must go on!
