Leo McKern
Australia Crest

Actor, famous for his role as the dishevelled, crusty barrister in 'Rumpole of The Old Bailey', was born in Sydney on 16th March, 1920.

McKern has a dread of flying and his infrequent returns to Australia have been as a passenger on cargo ships. This has become too difficult and now he flies, reluctantly.

Sailing is a favourite hobby of Leo McKern.

He has also appeared in The French Lieutenant's Woman, Travelling North with Graeme Kennedy and Steele Rudd's On Our Selection.

Leo is currently starring in She Stoops To Conquer at the Sydney Opera House with his daughter Abigail McKern and Ruth Cracknell.
