Gallery: Equity Ensemble Awards

Casts from Bump, Deadloch and Safe Home were honoured along with veteran actor Bruce Spence.

Casts from Bump, Deadloch and Safe Home last Monday celebrated their wins at the Equity Ensemble Awards in Sydney, hosted by the Equity Foundation.

Veteran actor Bruce Spence was also honoured with the Lifetime Achievement.

Spence was selected from an impressive field of nominees by the National Performers’ Committee, who praised him for his immense contribution to Australia’s cultural landscape, being a vocal and constant activist for actors’ rights and dedicating countless hours to fundraising and assisting those experiencing hardship. Among those who paid tribute to Bruce were Director George Miller and actors Helen Thomson, Jacki Weaver, Colin Friels and Philip Quast.

More than 200 members of the Australian entertainment industry and Equity community gathered at the Sydney Theatre Company. Opened by Federal Arts Minister Tony Burk and hosted by MEAA president Michael Balk, the evening was a celebration of Australian stories and all who bring them to life.

  1. Great post and pics, DK. I worked with Bruce on a one day shoot 30 years ago and even then I felt I was in the presence of an iconic actor. And I was. Terrific honour for him.
