Colin: Your kids can be cruel. Jack was sitting at the table and he turns around and asks me - 'Dad, don't you think you've done a bit of over-acting in your time?'
Colin: (part of his speech after he won a Logie) I'm very flattered for this and it's all rather silly isn't it? So thank you very much.
Colin is married to Australian actress Judy Davis, and together they have two children.
Colin was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 1997. He made the decision to leave Water Rats, the show he was working on, a year later, because of the work load and his cancer.
