Frank Whitten

Actor Frank Whitten first won attention in 1984 as the enigmatic farmer in Vincent Ward's breakthrough film Vigil. Later he was known to many for his role as the Southern Man in the Speights "onya mate" commercials, and his ongoing role in Outrageous Fortune, playing the manipulative grandfather to the West clan.

...a wicked, irreverent man of lethal wit, a heart of gold and one of the best actors we'll ever work with.
