It's All Relative - Rachel Ward and Bryan Brown

Just watched Bryan Brown in Dean Spanley the other night and I realized that I hadn't added this acting couple to the list of "It's All Relative". Rachel Ward and Bryan met while filming The Thorn Birds and have been married since 1983.

Rachel has been seen in the following period dramas: Love on the Land, Wide Sargasso Sea, Johnson County War, Christopher Columbus: The Discovery, Pirates: The True Story of Blackbeard (as well as being known for her role in Against All Odds).

Bryan Brown's credits include: Australia, Dean Spanley, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Against the Wind and he has co-starred along with Rachel in The Good Wife as well as The Thorn Birds.

  1. The only big part I've seen Bryan Brown in was the 1981 miniseries A Town Like Alice, where he plays an Australian POW in Malaya in WWI who helps a group of English ladies who are on a death march (with a cross-continental love story resulting). Despite the low budget, it was riveting and he was fantastic in it. It would be a good film to feature on this site. Unfortunately it's not on DVD, but the entire film is available on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=trJxV9909IE&feature=BF&list=PL23E544EF68DD00E6&index=75

  2. Bryan Brown and Sam Neill have been in a bunch of movies together and are very good friends. :) It would be great to hear what you thought of Dean Spanley, so I hope you'll be sharing it with us! :)

  3. Jane, thanks for mentioning that series. I hadn't heard of it!

    Traxy, wish I could give a better report on Dean Spanley but I thought it dragged on and didn't live up to what I expected from its trailer. It was just alright. I've seen slow moving films before that had me riveted but it just felt flat to me (even though I loved seeing Jeremy and Bryan).

  4. An excellent 2000 TV movie version of Nevil Shute's "On the Beach" stars both Ward and Brown. It's available on DVD.
