A mis­guided child­hood dream of be­ing an NBA player –“I’m short and skinny!” – led Gle­nane to drama school (his mother tricked him into think­ing it would help with pub­lic speak­ing). It was the right move: he has since carved an im­pres­sive CV with roles in­clud­ing Pic­nic at Hang­ing Rock, Mr In-be­tween and was cast as the last Aus­tralian on Earth in the fu­tur­is­tic thriller Snow­piercer.

“Now is an amaz­ing time not only be­cause there are so many plat­forms you can chan­nel your­self into, but also be­cause you can cre­ate your own con­tent, jump on board a big TV se­ries, and the di­ver­sity is amaz­ing over here (in LA). I went into an au­di­tion the other day where there was an African-Amer­i­can guy and a Latino guy, all of us go­ing for the same role. It ‘s so great that that’s how the au­di­tion process hap­pens now, be­cause the more cul­tures you mix in the more in­ter­est­ing our sto­ries.”
