Bruce Phillips

Actor, Writer

Bruce Phillips’ long stage career encompasses six acting awards, directing, and a “brilliantly funny” starring role as Uncle Vanya. On-screen, his CV runs to more than 30 roles, including playing fighter pilot Richard Dalgleish on TV series Country GP, a womanising dentist on Roger Hall comedy Neighbourhood Watch, and Prime Minister Geoffrey Palmer in 1994 miniseries Fallout.

At primary school he appeared as a variety of characters — frogs, carol boys, chickens, couriers — probably conjured to life from the pages of the school journals. Fellow actor Jane Waddell writes about Bruce Phillips, W5 Magazine, 17 April 1984, page 9
