Friends and colleagues of Mark Priestley gathered at NIDA yesterday to remember the actor who tragically died less than two weeks ago.
The memorial ceremony for Priestley’s east coast friends followed his family funeral in Perth on Thursday.
Home and Away stars Jessica Tovey and Josh Quongtart, All Saints’ Judith McGrath, Underbelly actor Gyton Grantley, Saskia Burmeister of Sea Patrol and husband Jamie Croft of Farscape were all in attendance.
“It’s beautiful, just beautiful in there. Everyone is telling great stories about him, speaking so beautifully of him,” a NIDA friend said.
“It’s a sad time. He will be missed.”
Priestley died following a struggle with depression.
