Guest Stars as Henry Fox
Tim Draxl returns to A Place To Call Home as surgeon Henry Fox, a role he first created for season three.
Tim has been acting consistently for the last decade and his extensive television credits include the Molly Meldrum telemovie Molly, the critically acclaimed series Serangoon Road, Mrs Biggs, Home & Away, Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries, Crownies, Day One, Tangle, Headland, Supernova, Dynasty: The Making of a Guilty Pleasure, and The Shark Net.
Tim recently finished a season of Lip Service for Ensemble Theatre. Other theatre credits include Only Heaven Knows (Hayes Theatre), Freeway – The Chet Baker Journey (Sydney Opera House, Melbourne Festival, Brisbane Festival), Mothers and Sons (Ensemble Theatre), Nailed (Griffin Theatre Company), A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Belvoir), The Sound Of Music (Lyric Theatre), and She Loves Me (The Production Company). He will next be seen in Torch Song Trilogy for Darlinghurst Theatre Company.
His film work includes 2016’s Nest, directed by Kimble Rendall, A Few Best Men, Undocumented, Ivory, In My Sleep, Red Canyon, Right Here Right Now, Travelling Light, Swimming Upstream, and Dirty Deeds.
Tim received an ASTRA Award Nomination for Most Outstanding Performance by an Actor for Supernova (2006), and a TV WEEK Logie Award Nomination for Most Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series for The Shark Net (2005).
He has released four solo albums, ‘Ordinary Miracles’ and ‘Insongniac’ for Sony Music Australia, the independently released ‘Tim Draxl Live At The Supper Club’, and ‘My Funny Valentine’ released through Ambition Entertainment.
Despite the disappointments Henry faced – losing James and scotching Anna’s marriage proposal to be true to himself – at the end of season five, as Tim Draxl notes, Henry is somewhat emboldened and proud. When Sarah asked Henry if there was a pill to change to his sexual preference he said, “No, I’d throw it in their faces”. In The Final Chapter Henry’s future and all that he holds dear looks threatened yet he will find unexpected love and compassion.
For Tim Draxl, playing surgeon Henry has taught him a life lesson in not taking things for granted. Tim’s also an admirer of Henry’s inner strength and perseverance. “Henry is the sort of guy who seems to have things together and he keeps getting the rug pulled out from under him. He always manages to some way collect himself again and find his feet. He’s never as confident as he was previously – at least in a different way,” Tim says. “I live my life a bit flippantly sometimes where I think everything’s fine, and anything can change at any moment, and if he’s taught me anything it’s to face [things] head on and be prepared and no matter what comes your way there’s always a way forward – there’s always a way through it, over it, under it.”
