Bjorn Stewart was Indigenous X host from November 7 to November 13, 2014.
Five questions to Bjorn Stewart
My trade is acting, directing and writing for theatre, television and film. I was in a play earlier this year called Coranderrk with Jack Charles, Kelton Pell and a great ensemble of actors. Later on Leah Purcell directed me in Jada Alberts’ play Brothers Wreck. On telly my award-winning performance on Redfern Now swung the vote and helped Blackfella Films and ABC clean up at the Deadlys and Logies (Maybe a slight exaggeration on my part).
Now I am currently on Black Comedy 9.30pm Weds on ABC1.
Leah Purcell would have to be a big role model of mine as well. She is one of the best directors I have worked with. She has been my mentor and demands a standard that constantly pushes me further as an actor and director.
I want to see characters defined by the stories they tell, not by the stories their skin colour tells to the mainstream.
