Terry Gill (25 October 1939 – 25 February 2015) was an English Australian actor, theatre owner, producer, director and writer. A character actor, he carved a niche in Australian television playing police officers. He appeared in over 26 Australian television productions either as a regular or in guest roles.[1] He was often associated with Crawford Productions and Reg Grundy Organisation.

Early life

Born in England, Gill never knew his father.[2] He immigrated to Australia with his actress wife Carole Ann Gill.

Career

Gill was a recurring cast member in the women's prison drama Prisoner[3] as Det. Insp. Jack Grace, a regular cast member as Sgt. Jack Carruthers in The Flying Doctors[4] and played another recurring role in Blue Heelers as Superintendent Clive Adamson. He appeared in a guest role on Neighbours.

Gill appeared in Crocodile Dundee as the leader of a group of kangaroo shooters whom Dundee (Paul Hogan) fights in the Walkabout Creek Hotel bar, and later uses a dead kangaroo as a cover to shoot at the shooters and scare them. He portrayed Santa Claus on Australian TV's annual Carols by Candlelight for 27 years[2] (in later years alongside well-known children's entertainers Hi-5 and Australian TV icon Humphrey B. Bear).[1]

For many years, Gill and his wife Carol Ann ran The Tivoli[2] theatre restaurant in Melbourne,[3][5] producing pantomimes and theatre shows featuring many well-known Australian performers.

Personal life

Gill was married to Carole Ann Gill (née Aylett) for 52 years[5] (until his death). They had two children.[2]

He suffered a mild stroke in late 2014.[2] After suffering from lung cancer, he died in the inner Melbourne suburb of Richmond on 25 February 2015.[2]
