Actor Hugh Keays-Byrne (1947–2020) interviewed by Lorna Lesley.
In this clip, Hugh describes his role as Immortan Joe in Mad Max: Fury Road (George Miller, 2015) and how his old biker jacket helped to form the character.
Hugh originally came to Australia from the UK in 1973, touring with the Royal Shakespeare Company.
He relocated permanently and quickly gained cult status for iconic film roles such as Toad in Stone (1974, Sandy Harbutt), and Toecutter in the original Mad Max (George Miller, 1979).
