Mcleod's Daughters: articles

Double shot of debutant Jonny

YET another hunky male is about to be unveiled on Nine's hit drama series McLeod's Daughters.

And Jonny Pasvolsky is not complaining one little bit if the ladies take a liking to him.

The Sydney actor, who studied at the Victorian College of the Arts for three years, said 2005 had been a smashing year for him.

"This whole year has been a year of firsts for me," he said. "I'd never done a television series and I'd never done a feature film."

With his first season of McLeod's under his belt, and a movie -- the gangland-inspired Macbeth flick M -- in the process of being filmed, things are happening for Pasvolsky.

In Geoffrey Wright's film, the 32-year-old Pasvolsky stars alongside Gary Sweet, Sam Worthington, Steve Bastoni, Damian Walshe-Howling and Defence Minister Senator Robert Hill's daughter Victoria.

Pasvolsky said he was loving the process of making a feature film, despite the all-night shifts filmed in dark corners of Docklands.

"My first scene was with Gary Sweet and he was just so encouraging," he said.

"It has been really great. (Film) really is an amazing medium."

Pasvolsky said grabbing the M role felt like it was meant to be because filming fitted perfectly into the six-week break he had from McLeod's.

His McLeod's character hits our screens on August 3, with the show returning to air the week before after a nine-week hiatus.

And Pasvolsky dropped a few hints about his character.

"He's a bit dark," the actor said. "He's unfortunately had something that has happened to him which gets in the way of him being able to open up to the other characters."
