BIOGRAPHY:

Popular Australian actor born in New South Wales, whose earlier film work typified the "Aussie larrikin" sterotype with his lively and animated acting style, blonde hair and lairish grin. Bisley broke into film alongside fellow NIDA graduate Mel Gibson (I) in the surfie flick Summer City (1977), followed by a minor role in Newsfront (1978), next up Bisley appeared as quick tempered police officer "Jim Goose", again with Mel Gibson (I) in the action thriller Mad Max (1979), and then as a wildcat miner in the gritty outback tale of The Last of the Knucklemen (1979).

The likeable Bisley found himself in regular demand in both Australian cinema and TV, and over the next few years he showed up in a variety of fine productions including _"A Town like Alice" (1981)_, _Highest Honor (1982)_, Squizzy Taylor (1982) and Silver City (1984).

Bisley then appeared in the highly popular TV series _"The Flying Doctors" (1985)_, in the period piece _"Emma: Queen of the South Seas" (1988)_ and the ABC TV series "G.P." (1989). His next role was as a slick talking and shonky car salesman in the delightful The Big Steal (1990), however Bisley was back on the side of good in the prime rating TV series _"Police Rescue" (1990)_. Bisley continued to keep busy in the 1990s with great performances in many TV productions such as _"Halifax f.p: Sweet Dreams" (1996)_, "Frontline" (1994) and four years as tough detective "Jack Christey" in "Water Rats" (1996).

A key actor in the growth of Australian cinema and TV for nearly three decades.
