A great Australian has died

Bud Tingwell is gone:

VETERAN Australian actor Bud Tingwell died this morning with his son and daughter by his side.

Tingwell passed away in a Melbourne hospital at 8.30am, his spokesperson told

The spokesperson said while his health had been pretty good in recent years, he passed away from complications with prostate cancer.

Tingwell had been diagnosed with the disease a couple of years ago.

Best known for his roles in the film Breaker Morant, mini-series All The Rivers Run and more recently, The Castle, Tingwell was still acting in films and on the stage until recent years.

I'm old enough to remember him in Homicide:
