15 Throwback Aussie Actors You Definitely Lusted Over As A Kid

The thirst is still strong TBH.

Posted on

1. Ryan Corr (Sheng Zamett on Silversun)

Australian Broadcasting Corporation

Nothing sounded more enticing than being trapped on a spaceship for a couple of decades with the likes of Sheng and his freshly-gelled spikes.

2. Ben Thomas (Pete Twist on Round The Twist)

Australian Broadcasting Corporation

Strange things happened when you watched Round The Twist... and that included the feeling in your soul when you saw Pete.

3. Elliot Spencer (Rollercoaster)

Australian Broadcasting Corporation

Elliot Spencer was kinda nerdy, but you dug that vibe. Plus he hosted Rollercoaster, which had all your favourite cartoons plus that catchy theme song you liked.

4. Adam Saunders (Heath Carrol on Blue Water High)


Every guy in Blue Water High was kinda thirst worthy TBH, but Heath was different... I mean look at that puppy dog smile. No joke, you actually got jealous when his character started dating Fly.


5. Nick Hardcastle (Creature Features)

ABC / Via

Animals, tick. Cute dreamy guy, tick. Annoying side bae/cat, major no-no. But you powered through it just so you could watch Nick teach you a thing or two about creatures and their features.

6. Jack Blumenau (Noah on Noah And Saskia)

ACTF / Via

Watching this show made you want to go on your own mission to find a cute Internet boyfriend like Noah, but then your mum found out and banned you from the computer (laaaaame, ugh).

8. James O'Mea (Red O'Malley on The Saddle Club)


No one could calm a spooked horse or nurse it back to good health like Red could. Plus you bet he had some pretty good muscles from cleaning out the stables all the time.


9. Angus McLaren (Lewis McCartney on H20: Just Add Water)

Network Ten

He was talented, smart, and ALWAYS helped the H20 girls keep their secret. And yes, you may or may not have cried when he left the show in Season 3.

11. Joshua Marshall Clark (Ben Johnson on Parallax)


You didn't so much as want to date Ben (Joshua Marshall Clark), but just kinda follow him around to explore all the different worlds. Wait, was young you trying to friendzone Ben? Hm.


13. James Pearson (Simon Tudor on Jeopardy)

BBC / Via

Okay, technically James Pearson is a British actor in an Australian TV show, but that's beside the point, because you were always rooting for Simon (even when he went kinda crazy and started "seeing" Mr Simmons and Melissa).

15. And Scott Tweedie (Prank Patrol)

ABC / Via

Every episode of Prank Patrol had you crossing your fingers, toes, and anything else in the hope that Scott Tweedie would one day prank and then magically ask you out on a date afterwards.
