Vale: Mark Priestley

In very sad news today, reports that Mark Priestley who played Dan Goldman in All Saints was found dead in Sydney. He had apparently been suffering from depression. (See stories at: The Australian, Sydney Morning Herald and the ABC online.)

Anybody who had seen All Saints in the last four years would have been aware of Priestley’s exceptional talent. His natural style and extraordinary range helped raise the quality of the show in a time of difficult transition. It was always a pleasure to watch him work.

It is shocking news and our thoughts go out to his family and friends.
