Stars : Guy Pearce , Marta Dusseldorp, Aaron Pedersen. Jack Irish has no shortage of friends, but family members are few and far between. His wife was murdered by an ex-client and his father is a fading photo on the pubs football wall of fame.

"I wasn't in the spotlight like Kylie and Jason," he recalls. "But it was enough to go, 'Whoa, this is really full-on.' I was hovering behind them, in a way."

Guy is adamant that if Neighbours casting director Jan Russ hadn't cast him back in 1986, he wouldn't be where he is today.

"I feel like I managed to handle the fame stuff pretty well [during Neighbours]," he says. "At least, I felt I was stable enough to continue on and be patient, and look for other work."

The Aussie actor reveals Monte has changed his life for the better.

"It's an extraordinary experience – and one I thought I was never going to have," Guy says of fatherhood. "It's an eye-opening experience.

"I'm very aware that having children is a full-on task, but it's also delightful."

Guy says he's enjoying watching Monte grow and learn.

"He's talking a lot," the actor enthuses. "He's talking Dutch, so I have no idea what he's saying! But he's speaking English too.

"It's fascinating watching that little brain absorb everything he can possibly absorb. It's incredible, really."

Monte may be half-Dutch, but Guy is ensuring he's still a little Aussie.

"I'm teaching him to say, 'G'day, mate!'" he laughs.

Considering his many achievements in Hollywood – including an Emmy Award for his performance in 2011 miniseries Mildred Pierce – Guy never needed to return to Australia to work.

But his heart belongs to his hometown of Melbourne. Guy says he'll always have a strong connection to the city because it's where he got his start in the industry – in Neighbours.
