I've followed his career from its inception, back from when he debuted in a local Perth soap as a young sports prodigy coming out, plucked from a play at Guildford Grammar School. A former work colleague actually saw his screen test. She said he practically glowed onscreen.

He was one of my favourite actors. At the time, I really admired the guts it took as a 17 year old to debut in a gay role. Then later, how could you not admire the strength of his performance in Brokeback Mountain. In his early career, I made a point of seeing everything he appeared in. The quirky Ten Things I Hate About You with Julia Stiles was a particular favourite.

This is very sad news.
