" ... I’ve always known Kewley was a good actor … solid, in his series like “Janus”, "Blue Heelers" and “Stingers”. But until last night I never knew he was a GREAT actor, inspirational and astonishing. I feel honoured to have been there for that performance. He has such gravitas on stage. So commanding. It is thrilling to watch him in his element. His performance as Dr Dysart was absolutely riveting and moved the audience to tears … Buy, steal, borrow, beg - do whatever you need to do to get a ticket to see EQUUS ..." (Coral Drouyn – Stage Whispers). From his professional debut in the AFI award-winning motion picture THE DEVIL’S PLAYGROUND (1975) to his performance on stage in EQUUS (2013) Kewley has enjoyed a solid professional career in the entertainment industry. On television he most recently played Des 'Tuppence' Moran in FAT TONY & CO (2014) and next on the big screen he stars as Roy Rogers in THE LEGEND MAKER (2014) which premiers at this years Melbourne Fim Festival.

From his professional debut at the age of 14 in Fred Schepisi's AFI award-winning feature film THE DEVIL'S PLAYGROUND (1975), award-winning actor Jeremy Kewley has gone on to enjoy a solid and diverse career in the entertainment industry.

As a dramatic actor on Australian television, he’s played lead roles in a number of series, from teen-heartthrob Robbie Stewart in Network Ten’s ill-fated soapie ARCADE (1979-1980), through to the critically acclaimed ABC-TV drama series JANUS (1994-1995) where he played Crown Prosecutor Vic Manoulis (1995 Logie Award Winner for Best Actor and Best Drama).

He went on to play Snr Sgt Bryan Gray on STINGERS (2000-2004) for five years, and for over nine years played semi-regular local journalist Tony Timms in BLUE HEELERS (1997-2005).

He’s appeared in dozens of iconic Australian series - everything from BELLBIRD to THE SULLIVANS to THE YOUNG DOCTORS in the 1970s; from COP SHOP to PRISONER to THE HENDERSON KIDS in the 1980s; from NEIGHBOURS to SEACHANGE to THE MAN FROM SNOWY RIVER in the 1990s; from THE SECRET LIFE OF US to McLEODS DAUGHTERS to BED OF ROSES to CITY HOMICIDE in the 2000s; and HOUSE HUSBANDS to WORST YEAR OF MY LIFE, AGAIN in 2014. And recurring roles on the ABC comedy series VERY SMALL BUSINESS (2008) and the Foxtel sitcom WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THAT GUY? (2009) on The Comedy Channel.

Kewley starred in the UNDERBELLY FILES: TELL THEM LUCIFER WAS HERE telemovie (2011) for the Nine Network; then played Des 'Tuppence' Moran in FAT TONY & CO for Screentime and Nine (2014).

He's appeared in numerous motion pictures including starring in two American pictures - DISAPPEARANCE (2002), a mystery thriller set in New Mexico, and THE X TEAM (2003), a snow-bound action adventure shot in the New Zealand Alps for Touchstone Pictures.

His Australian feature film credits range from 1970s classics like MAD DOG MORGAN (1976) opposite Dennis Hopper & Jack Thompson, and Bruce Beresford's THE GETTING OF WISDOM (1977); through to 1990s hits like Jimeoin's THE CRAIC (1998) and starring opposite Rachel Griffiths in AMY (1997), and in 10 TERRORISTS! (2012) playing an American CIA conspiracy theorist.

Next on the big screen he stars in FRANK & JERRY (2014) playing the lead role of US film producer Jerry Goldman; and plays Roy Rogers in the new Ian Pringle feature film THE LEGEND MAKER (2014).

He's appeared in over 150 short films.

Recent stage credits include his moving and powerful 25 minute monologue in FRIDAY NIGHT IN TOWN (2009) at La Mama’s Carlton Courthouse Theatre; a 30 minute monologue in Adèle Shelley’s SHE’S MY BABY (2009) at the Melbourne Fringe Festival; CALL GIRL THE MUSICAL (2009) at Chapel Off Chapel; IT'S ALL FUN AND GAMES ... at the 2011 Melbourne Comedy Festival; DEATH OF A COMEDIAN (2012) at La Mama’s Carlton Courthouse Theatre; starring in EQUUS for Mockingbird Theatre (2013), FLESH WOUND for Exhibit A: Theatre (2013), and DOOMSDAY DEVICES (2014) for Sly Rat Theatre; and from 2010 to 2011 he toured Australia in WEST SIDE STORY (Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane & Adelaide).

One of only a handful of Australian television ‘audience warm-up comedians’, Kewley has been a vital part of dozens of classic shows from YOUNG TALENT TIME and CANDID CAMERA ON AUSTRALIA to AUSTRALIA’S BRAINIEST KID, 1 VS 100, TEMPTATION, THE MARNGROOK FOOTY SHOW, THE X FACTOR and THE BIGGEST LOSER. And since it began in 1994 he has been the warm-up comedian for the AFL version of THE FOOTY SHOW, including all the shows done from Sydney, Perth, Adelaide and Hobart, and the live broadcasts from the Theatre Royal in London (2001, 2005) and the Prinz Regent Theatre in Munich (2006).

For the last few years he's been the pre-show Master of Ceremonies at annual television events like the GOOD FRIDAY APPEAL and THE AFI AWARDS.

And he produced FUNNY BY GEORGE: THE GEORGE WALLACE STORY (2000) for ABC-TV, and YOUNG TALENT TIME TELLS ALL for Network 10 (2002).
