A tree falls...

Tributes flow in for Bud Tingwell
Friday, May 15, 2009 » 08:04pm


Actors and politicians are paying tribute to 86-year-old Charles 'Bud' Tingwell, who died early today of prostate cancer.

New South Wales Premier Nathan Rees says Bud Tingwell, born in Sydney's Coogee, was a kindhearted and fatherly figure for many Australians who came to love him through stage and screen.

Mr Rees says from Smithy to The Castle, Tingwell was a face and a voice and a warm presence that four Australian generations recall with love.

He was also a tireless campaigner for Australian actors and for more Australian content.

Victorian premier John Brumby says Tingwell was a great man, whose characters captured the essence of the Australian spirit.

Fellow actor Jack Thompson, whose parents were friends with Tingwell, says it's as if a great tree has been felled in the landscape of our culture, and in particular the landscape of our film world.

Thompson worked with Tingwell on a number of films, including Breaker Morant.

Actor Tom Burlinson says he first met Tingwell when he appeared on the TV series Homicide, and later they played a father and son in the movie Wing Rider.

Burlinson says he was a delight to see and talk to, and be inspired by, a lovely man.

Tingwell will be farewelled at a state funeral at St Paul's Cathedral at 10.30am on Wednesday, May 20 in Melbourne.

Don't know who this Sidney fella is but I hope his Coogee has since tightened up.

No. Bud is dead. Sydney's Coogey is apparently fertile as ever.
