Bringing his brushes and banter, comedian, author, and Archibald Finalist Anh Do is heading back to the ABC. Season six of the Logie-nominated series Anh’s Brush with Fame premieres on Tuesday March 30 at 8.00pm on ABC and ABC iview.
Over the 14 episodes, Anh paints some of Australia’s most famous faces, capturing their personalities on the canvas. Anh delves behind the public profile of his subjects as he learns about the inspirational, heart-warming, and occasionally deeply emotional stories that have shaped their lives.
Nominated for four Logie Awards across three years, the show has been put forward for the Best Entertainment Program, Most Outstanding Entertainment Program, and Most Popular Entertainment Program.
“I can’t wait for this series to air with a great line-up of fantastic guests,” says Do.
The series will kick off with designer and TV presenter Jamie Durie. Anh also chats to homegrown heroes, Dr Harry Cooper, Australia’s original TV Vet, singer songwriter Missy Higgins, actor and broadcaster Kate Ritchie, and Midnight Oil front man, activist and politician, Peter Garrett. Also captured on the canvas will be former Justice of the High Court, Michael Kirby and legendary horse trainer Gai Waterhouse.
Many of Anh’s subjects have made Australia their home and share their diverse and insightful experiences. Former Bond Girl and Dr Quinn Medicine Woman, Jane Seymour, opens up about her life and career. Tara Moss is a Canadian born, best-selling author, Li Cunxin a ballet dancer originally from China, Manu Feildel French chef and television presenter, and from the world of music Marcia Hines, Kamahl, and Guy Sebastian all share their stories of coming to Australia.
