Trivia and Quotes

  • A wonderfully talented, understated actor.

    Paul Bishop was a stand-out in his role of the tortured Ben Stewart on Blue Heelers and I was really hoping to see him in so much more after his run on the show ended. I've managed to catch a few theatre pieces but miss having him on my TV screen.

    He reminds me both in looks and acting style of another favourite actor of mine, Canadian, Paul Gross. Interstingly, they look alike, they are both called Paul and both played coppers called Ben.

    I would absolutely love to see Paul Bishop turn up on "Love My Way" next season - that's the sort of quality work his talent deserves.moreless
  • A fine example of excelent Australian acting.

    I was writing an article on the character of Ben Stewart for a blog recently, and I had to stop twice because I was laughing too hard at how pathetically sad his character was when it came to personal relationships. It was a testimony to Paul Bishop's acting ability that I was riveted, not laughing at how pathetically sad Ben was, to his storylines. Bishop is a fine example of quality Australian writing, and I was sorry that towards the end of his run on Blue Heelers he had very little to do. I hope a TV producer out there somewhere feels the same way I do, and gives him a decent role in a quality show.moreless
