William McInnes - William Tells
William McInnes is one of Australia’s most popular stage and screen actors best known for his roles in TV series such as Sea Change and Blue Heelers and movies including Curtin and Unfinished Sky.
And with the publication of his memoir in 2006 A Man’s Got to Have a Hobby, which was selected as a Books Alive 50 GreatReads, and his novel Cricket Kings he has become a much-loved author too.
William likes playing the class clown, but there’s a lot more to him. One minute he will have audiences in stitches as he impersonates Tony Abbot or relating anecdotes as a schoolboy in Redcliffe and the next he’ll be giving a considered opinion on the state of Australian public life.
It may surprise many of his fans to know he is chairman of the advisory council for the Museum of Australian Democracy. “There’s nothing wrong with celebrating democracy and trying to understand it more,” he says. “Too many people died to ensure its survival.”
It’s the theme that runs through his latest– and fourth – book and the accompanying TV series, The Making of Modern Australia. It is an affectionate journey through Australia’s post war years. Brisbane ABC’s Richard Fidler has the job of harnessing William in what will be a laughter and thought provoking session.
