John Ewart (26 February 1928 – 8 March 1994) was an Australian actor of radio, stage, television and film. Ewart won an AACTA Award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role.

Biography

Career

Ewart who was born in Melbourne, began his acting career when he was cast at the age four in a radio production of Snow White. At the age of 18, he made his film debut in the lead role of Mickey O'Riordan in Charles Chauvel's production of Sons of Matthew.

Ewart appeared in hundreds of Australian radio, theatre, film and television productions. To many thousands of Australians who grew up in the 1950s and '60s, he will be remembered as "Jimm", the boyishly cheeky co-presenter of the ABC Radio Children's Session, and in the title role of its long-running serial The Muddle-Headed Wombat.

He was well known for his role in the film Sunday Too Far Away, his ongoing role in the Australian TV series The Restless Years in 1980–81, and his lead role opposite Nicole Kidman in Bush Christmas. He was proudest of his starring role in the 1977 film The Picture Show Man.

Personal life

Ewart married Susan in 1956, with whom he had four children. They divorced in 1978. In 1992 he became engaged to Jane Fennell, but they postponed the wedding after the death of her father, Ewart's long time friend Willie Fennell. They were married on 8 March 1994 in a bedside ceremony as Ewart was dying of throat cancer. He died nine hours after the wedding.[1]
