UNCLE JACK CHARLES
actor, musician, potter and gifted performer
Uncle Jack Charles is a national treasure, an award-winning actor, Aboriginal elder and activist. But in his 77 years he has also been homeless, a heroin addict, a thief and a regular in Victoria’s prisons.
A member of the Stolen Generation, Jack has spent his life in between acting gigs, caught in the addiction/crime/doing time cycle.
Today — no longer caught in the cycle — he lives to tell the extraordinary tale of his colourful life and brilliant career.
