His favourite show - to date - was last year’s Play, A Murder is Announced. Although Man of La Mancha, being his first show, comes a close second. He loved playing the spoilt, sarcastic Patrick.
So what drew Ian to audition for Hotel Sorrento? The answer is pretty straight forward. It was an opportunity to do a play where he didn't have to work hard on an accent (and Wal's a great Aussie ocker role).
As for what has been Ian's favourite part of the season thus far? It was the day trip to Sorrento - "It was a beautiful day, good company and great memories of time spent there when I was a kid and young adult."
And if Ian could meet a celebrity on the beach who would he choose? Lenny Hayes was the answer. "I'm a Saints supporter and their training base isn't far from the beach".
