Barry Duffield was born in 1962, Billingham, UK. He immigrated to Australia with his family in 1969 and they eventually settled in the Bauxite mining town of Nhulunbuy, Northern Territory. His first foray into film was when he "borrowed" his fathers super-8mm-camera and created the all singing, all dancing, stop-motion Salt'N'Pepper shaker show. There was a guest appearance by a partially consumed milkshake in a frosty glass, which still remains uncredited to this day. He was taught to run the projection booth of the Gove cinema after being caught stealing movie posters from the foyer and given a choice, police, parents, or honest work.It wasn't long before Barry was splicing film, changing out carbon rods, and managing reel changes like a pro. His passion for all things film grew and he eventually went to South Seas Film and Television School in Auckland, New Zealand, where he majored in screenwriting and directing. Barry began his acting career in Darwin with a Kawasaki TVC, and then Brisbane with work on Australia's Most Wanted, and Escape From Absolom. He followed this up with a move to New Zealand where he appeared on Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, Xena, Young Hercules, Jack of all Trades, Shortland Street, Street Legal, Field Punishment #1, The Monster of Treasure Island, and Spartacus playing Lugo. Barry has two successful graphic novels on Amazon and is moving into producing.
