DUSTIN Clare spent a year try­ing to hit the big time in Hol­ly­wood, but so far has had lit­tle luck.

He has re­turned to Aus­tralia bet­ter for the ex­pe­ri­ence and de­ter­mined to give the US an­other shot.

‘‘I spent 12 months in the US and the writ­ers’ strike re­ally ground me to a halt,’’ the Lo­gie Award-winning ac­tor says. ‘‘Au­di­tion­ing is so dif­fer­ent in the US. It’s very cold and clin­i­cal. You have a cast­ing agent who has seen 150 peo­ple . . . they don’t look at you.’’

Clare hopes to cre­ate an act­ing pro­file here and the US.

‘‘I’ll al­ways be go­ing back and forth,’’ he says.
