Peter Tait

The versatile Peter Tait is probably best known for starring in a series of acclaimed short films. One of the earliest — and strangest — was 1989 classic Kitchen Sink. Since then Tait has appeared in The Singing Trophy (playing an obsessed hunter), Alison MacLean's Talkback (as an aggressive talkback caller), and Cannes success Mon Desir. His work as director includes comic short Bradman, and low-budget feature Back River Road.

... he just had this amazing quality — like someone who had just been born. A certain kind of innocence that is at odds with his appearance. He just has such a very strong, physical presence.
