7) He had KAOS, the initials of his mother and three sisters, tattooed onto his wrist.

8) As a boy he loved Chuck Norris.

9) He excelled at hockey, cricket and Aussie rules football, but played them just to get out of army cadets: "I mean, who wants to shoot an automatic rifle? What the fuck was I going to use that for?"

10) A teenage passion for dancing was inspired by his love of Gene Kelly.

11) At school he led a team of 60 all-male dancers — farmers sons at a military school — to an unprecedented nationwide high-school competition, dancing through the different aspects of fashion. They were the first all-boy school to win.

14) His first big role — in Australian TV series Sweat — was as a gay bicyclist.

15) His first international role was on Australia/US TV series Roar, where he played a heroic young man dashing about on horseback dressed in sparse leather enthusiastically slaying foes with a mighty sword.
