JEREMY SIMS - Director/Executive Producer

Jeremy is a popular and well-known figure in Australian artistic life. He has had, and continues to have, a successful and acclaimed career as an actor, working in film (he received an AFI award 'Best actor' nomination for Idiot Box), on television (he has several Logie and AFI 'Best Actor' nominations, winning for ‘Aftershocks’) and on stage, where his reputation as one of Australia's greatest actors has been built playing roles like Cyrano De Bergerac and Hamlet to national acclaim. He regularly directs for Australia's flagship theatre producer - The Sydney Theatre Company, and was most recently seen on stage in the Phillip Seymour-Hoffman directed production of Andrew Upton’s play ‘Riflemind’.

He has been Artistic Director of his company Pork Chop Productions since 1995 and has directed and produced acclaimed classical interpretations and original theatrical works all around the country. Pork Chop Productions is now focused entirely on new Australian works, having developed and produced several award winning shows over the last eight years. Jeremy has worked most notably with the writer and long time friend, Reg Cribb. Their production of ‘Last Cab to Darwin’ produced in association with the Sydney Opera House has won many awards and toured nationally in 2004.

‘Last Train To Freo’ was Jeremy’s first feature film as a director/producer. It was nominated for three AFI awards (including Best Actor in a Leading role for Steve Le Marquand), and has been sold all around the world. He is presently about to begin production on a feature film adaptation of ‘Last Cab to Darwin’ as writer/director/producer. It continues his artistic association with Reg.

Jeremy is married to well-known film director Samantha Lang (The Well, L'idole), and they have two daughters - Frederique and Evelyn Rose.
