This site is dedicated to some of the undocumented Australian actors – who travelled to work overseas, particularly in the late nineteenth – mid twentieth century.

It is also a work in progress, so where new information becomes available, entries are updated. Special thanks to the some of the extended families of actors listed here, who have contributed to improving the narratives – they are acknowledged on the Thanks, Links and Sources page.
