Cameron Daddo hits the stage for a Dickens’ ghost story ‘The Haunting’
By Meg McKenna
Cameron Daddo chatted to Denis Walter on the 3AW Afternoons about his part in the stage play ‘The Haunting’ ? an adaption of Charles Dickens’ series of ghost stories.
Daddo described The Haunting as a two-hander thrill ride that relies on great story telling and depth of character, ‘there are a lot of laughs and a lot of scares’.
The multi-award winning performer is keeping the second actor’s identity under the rug, ‘he’s a younger actor and he’ll be fantastic’.
This will be Daddo’s first two-hander play, as well as his first horror play, so he’s curious as to how it’s going to turn out.
After taking a risky leap and moving to Los Angeles in 1992, he became a dad and worked as a water filtration salesman for a short amount of time.
‘I really felt like I grew up in Los Angeles, that’s where I found my feet’.
He said he went through some pretty major mistakes as well as some big victories during that time, and he doesn’t regret any of it.
Daddo went on to star in television series such as CSI, NCIS, The Mentalist and Packed to the Rafters. Recently he’s been on stage as a part of Legally Blonde and the Sound of Music.
The Haunting is showing at The Athenaeum Theatre from June 14th to July 1st.
