I’m continuing my post-new-baby tradition of making an annual return to the stage…
For 7 short days I will be appearing as the fiercely equivocal Pastor Kai in “Jay and Ruby Get Religion” by Joe Hoover, directed by Jim Shankman. It’s a romantic comedy that’s “one part His Girl Friday, one part Amoris Laetitiae and one part Dark Night of the Soul – the Dance Remix”.

You can now see me in a scene with Clive Owen and Nicki Kontolefa in the latest episode of “The Knick” on Cinemax.
Season 2, Episode 3: “The Best with the Best to Get the Best”
I’m excited to have accepted the role of Mr. Gardiner in a new adaptation by Christopher Baker of Jane Austen’s classic, “Pride and Prejudice”.
Hana S. Sharif will direct the production for Baltimore Center Stage.
It will be my first time working at BCS and with Ms Sharif, and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity!
As you’re binge-watching Season 3 of the hit show, you’ll see me playing a doctor in Episode 12, “Don’t Make Me Come Back There”.
And yes, I did jump ahead to my episode to watch my scene before starting the season at the beginning. I admit it.
Watch on Netflix.
UPDATE: If you don’t mind possibly spoiling your enjoyment of Season 3, you can watch a clip of my scene from Episode 12 here.
Recently I was thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Clive Owen and Steven Soderbergh in a scene from Episode 3 of the upcoming 2nd season of The Knick on Cinemax.
The second season is currently in production and will be released later this year.
I’ve had small speaking roles on television in Australia and Japan before, as well as on several US daytime dramas.
But on Sunday February 1st, in the mid-season return episode airing immediately after the Super Bowl, I made my US prime-time network television debut in NBC’s drama The Blacklist…!
January 2014 saw the beginning of a new chapter in my life when my wife and I welcomed the arrival of our first child!
Our daughter Astrid has been keeping us busy, and so for most of 2014 I kept a slightly lower profile professionally than in the past.
However, I continued to audition for animation and commercial voice-over work, local and regional theatre productions, prime-time television shows, and feature films.
In September I was very pleased to make time to work with my friends at Australian Made Entertainment on their last New York show, David Williamson’s The Club. It was a rare opportunity for me to appear on stage using my native Australian accent!
In October I was very excited to work on an episode in Season 3 of the hugely popular Netflix original series, Orange is the New Black. I can’t wait to see it when the entire season is released later in 2015.
*** UPDATE ***
The third season of Orange is the New Black will be released on Netflix on June 12, 2015…!
Our production of The Beauty Queen of Leenane at Shakespeare & Company has been received very well by the critics. Here’s what some of them have said about my work as Pato:
New York Times (Ben Brantley) – “a prospective lover, played by a first-rate David Sedgwick.”
Boston Globe (Don Aucoin) – “A hallmark of Sedgwick’s excellent performance as Pato is that he makes clear the fervor of the character’s own dreams”
Berkshire Bright Focus (J. Peter Bergman) – “Sedgwick comes through this performance into a star’s role in this company. He is that strong and endearing and in charge of his inner man. His debut role could lead to more roles in the future. He would be interesting to watch develop within the womb of this theater company family.”
Curtain Up (Elyse Sommer) – “Pato Dooley (David Sedgwick, a charming and worthy successor to Brian O’Byrne who created the role originally)”
“His second act opening monologue in the form of an epistolary proposal is incredibly touching.”
Metroland (B.A. Nilsson) –“ David Sedgwick brings a needed gravitas to the role of Pato, … and the second act begins with Sedgwick’s masterful performance of the show’s celebrated monologue, his recitation of a letter exhorting Maureen to join him.”
The Artery (Ed Siegel) – “(David Sedgwick as her suitor is also excellent.)”
Berkshire Eagle (Jeffrey Borak) – “Pato Dooley (a winning and appealing David Sedgwick)”
Berkshire Fine Arts (Charles Giuliano) – “the fine and manly Pato … In a wonderfully halting manner … speaks of his love for The Beauty Queen of Leenane”
In the Spotlight (Shera Cohen) – “David Sedgwick (the beaux) whose gentleness and understanding is beautiful to watch”
Berkshire on Stage (Gail M. Burns & Larry Murray) – Gail: “Pato is one of my favorite male characters in modern drama, and I loved David Sedgwick in the role. If that Dolores Hooley (or is it Healey) ever gets tired of him I’ll take him off her hands!”
I’ve just started rehearsals on my first production with Shakespeare & Company.
The Beauty Queen of Leeenane, the first play to bring Martin McDonagh to the world’s attention, stars Shakespeare & Company founding artistic director, Tina Packer, and is directed by Matthew Penn.
