Hugh Sheridan

Adelaide's favourite son is coming back to Carols!

Hugh Sheridan’s come a long way since bursting into Australia’s consciousness as the loveable Ben Rafter in the Seven Network’s ratings juggernaut, Packed to the Rafters.

He’s now an international star of stage, screen and song - a four-time silver logie winner, award-winning theatre performer and in-demand musician.

To quote acclaimed Aussie actor Michael Caton: “A talented actor who sings like a songbird and dances like Gene Kelly. Audiences adore him. Doesn’t that strike you as a bit greedy?"

Growing up in a jazz household in Adelaide, Hugh started acting classes at the Unley Youth Centre when he was five. He’d later join the Australian Ballet School, The Victorian College of Arts and the National Institute of Dramatic Art in Sydney.

As well as Rafters, Hugh’s also starred in the INXS telemovie, Never Tear Us Apart and appeared alongside Geoffrey Rush in the stage musical, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. In 2018, he’ll appear in big budget feature films, Escape and Evasion, Isn’t It Romantic and Boar.

Hugh released his first album, Speak Love, in 2010, and now heads up popular band the California Crooners Club. There’ll be a new solo album and national tour in 2018.

Hugh now lives in Los Angeles.
