Jonathan Hardy – 1940-2012

Australian actor Jonathan Hardy has passed away. Mr Hardy is best known for his Oscar nomination for the screenplay on Breaker Morant, in 1980. Hardy, born in New Zealand and a resident of Britain for a short time before emigrating to Australia, made appearences in films such as Mad Max, Moulin Rouge, and The Devil’s Playground. He directed 80’s pop-star Laura Brannigan in Backstage, while international audiences would recognise his voice as the character Dominar Rygel XVI in the sci-fi series Farscape.

Mr Hardy passed away on July 30th, aged 71.

Normally detesting these kinds of bios, Rodney’s keen love of film more often outclasses his ability to write convincingly about them.

Never blessed with a body worthy of a porn star, nor being the heir to a wealthy industrialists fortune, nor suffering the tragedy of having his parents murdered outside a Gotham theater, Rodney is, contrary to popular opinion, neither Ron Jeremy, JD Rockefeller, or Batman.

As a serious appreciator of film since 1996, Rodney’s love affair with the medium has continued with his online blog, Fernby Films, a facility allowing him to communicate with fellow cineasts in their mutual love of all things movie.
