    I’ve watched A Place to Call Home, and David was amazing! I (not realizing he had been cast as Lord John) marvelled at his physical appearance (he’s so handsome, he’s beautiful), and his portrayal of a post-WW2 semi-rural Aussie poof being “cured” of his “perversions” (and then slowly reverting after his family rescued him from the asylum) was heart wrenching.

    It may or may not be considered “type-casting”, but if there is anyone who can convincingly play the role of a stunningly attractive gay man, who (since at the time, it was a capital offense) had to conceal his nature from all but his most intimate associates, it’s David Berry. I’m certain that his portrayal of Lord John Grey is going to be brilliant! 😀
