Who Do You Think You Are?: April 30

2013-04-26_2335Next week on Who Do You Think You Are? is actor Lex Marinos whose credits include Kingswood Country and more recently, The Slap.

Lex identifies strongly with his Greek heritage, growing up as ‘an outsider’ in an assimilationist White Australia era. He wonders if his predominantly Greek identity has overshadowed his grandmother’s Anglo-Celtic lineage. Celebrating the birth of his granddaughter in a traditionally Greek-Australian family gathering, Lex is aware that the picture is incomplete.

Lex journeys to a one-horse outback town on the trail of his revered Greek grandfather Tony and his Anglo-Scottish grandmother, Minnie. There he discovers that the strong moral principles espoused by his grandfather are founded on shaky ground. He also travels to colonial-era Tasmania to investigate an ancestor wrongly-accused of a terrible crime.
