Ac­tor makes Whit­sun­days his home

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL -

PAS­SION­ATE about the per­form­ing arts, John Yerma has gone from SBS TV se­ries Housos to sell­ing houses right here in the Whit­sun­days.

John has spent most of his adult life in Queens­land, hav­ing moved with his par­ents from the south of France to Aus­tralia when he was just a boy.

He has ap­peared in tele­vi­sion com­mer­cials and pro­grams like Housos (from the cre­ator of Fat Pizza) to a speak­ing role in kid’s favourite movie, Happy Feet.

He has been vis­it­ing the Whit­sun­days reg­u­larly since the 1980’s and is ex­cited to have made the de­ci­sion to set­tle here per­ma­nently.

Since mov­ing to the Whit­sun­days in late Oc­to­ber, he has started work­ing as a sales agent at Ray White Whit­sun­day and joined lo­cal CA­BLE the­atre group.

“I’ve al­ways been in love with the Whit­sun­days.

Since sell­ing my in­vest­ment here years ago, I’ve been visit- ing the Whit­sun­days twice a year and fi­nally it dawned on me… just move there.”

He has since bought prop­erty here again and is look­ing for­ward to sink­ing his teeth into his role at Ray White.

What do you do to chill out?

I love the restau­rants and bars here. I love mix­ing with lo­cal and visi­tors, and I re­ally love be­ing in­volved in com­mu­nity projects.

Best place to eat in the Whit­sun­days?

I haven’t re­ally ex­plored enough yet. Banjo’s is great be­cause it’s walk­ing dis­tance to home and the meals and prices are great.

Last movie you saw in the cinema?

Happy Feet! I can’t re­call the last movie I saw, and I’ve got so many favourite movies. My favourite TV show at the mo­ment is Two Broke Girls.

What do you do for work?

I’ve just started as a sales agent with the awe­some team

at Ray White Whit­sun­day.

Plans for the next 12 months?

I used to sail in the Whit­sun­days in the 80’s and I want to rekin­dle that love af­fair. I also want to con­tinue learn­ing some of my in­stru­ments, and of course sell lots of prop­er­ties.

Any last words?

Live long, look good and feel great.

ACT­ING PAS­SION: John Yerma will bring his per­fro­mance skills to the CA­BLE the­atre group.
