The Aussiewood list

Australian actor Grant Bowler (Border Security, Blue Heelers, All Saints, Outrageous Fortune) has just appeared in two episodes of Lost in the US.

He follows on from a number of other locals in the drama, including regular cast mate Emilie de Ravin, and Alan Dale.

TV Tonight would like to compile a list of Aussie actors appearing in international series, and is asking readers to submit some names for inclusion.

Try to keep your suggestions to contemporary series (on air or recent) and primarily those in the US and UK. And remember, TV not film.

Once a name has been suggested, please avoid doubling up.
