VOGUE Australia - - CULTURE -

Roth­bury first be­gan act­ing at nine and most re­cently played quadru­ple broth­ers in Sig­nif­i­cant Strangers, which he also wrote. He wants to use his film­mak­ing as “an in­cred­i­ble plat­form to in­spire and in­sti­gate pos­i­tive change”, par­tic­u­larly for en­vi­ron­men­tal is­sues.

“I’m very in­ter­ested in be­com­ing a trans­for­ma­tive ac­tor; it’s ba­si­cally what I’ve been do­ing the past 10 years, I’m very com­mit­ted to trans­form­ing my­self into a role and spend­ing a lot of time on that.

“Hav­ing the Heath Ledger Schol­ar­ship be­hind me gives me even greater abil­ity to be able to do that and helps me with the more uni­ver­sal pur­suit to make this world a bet­ter place.”
