A cooler blend of culture

Adelaide actor Damon Herriman to play Charles Manson in Tarantino true crime flick

Damon Herriman

Australian actor Damon Herriman has played his fair share of psychotic roles. He’s been a white supremacist in Justified, a schizophrenic in Flesh and Bone, and a gay murderer in Quarry. Now comes his biggest psychotic role yet, playing Charles Manson in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time in Hollywood.

The 48-year-old actor will appear in the film – about what went down with the Manson Family murders – opposite fellow Australian actor Margot Robbie and alongside such Hollywood luminaries as Brad Pitt, Leonardo Di Caprio, Al Pacino and Burt Reynolds.

Herriman has definitely come a long way since playing an innocent little kid in classic family soap ‘The Sullivans’.

“It’s not intentional but I just have played a lot of bad guys,” the actor told SA Weekend in 2016. “It’s bizarrely a reversal of the first half of my career when I could only get cast as nice guys, a nerd, or the best friend kind of role.”

Though playing Charles Manson is as dark a role as an actor can get, Herriman’s star is certainly looking bright.  Antonino Tati
