In the next interview in the Griffith University series A Better Future For All, Kerry O’Brien talks to Alan Cumming OBE about everything from his eclectic career spanning screen, stage, and his LGBT activism fighting for the rights of others as part of A Life of Candour and Bravery: In Conversation with celebrated actor, writer and humanitarian Alan Cumming and Kerry O’Brien.

Eclectic doesn’t begin to describe Alan’s body of work. He has performed in concert halls across the globe, including the Sydney Opera House, the London Palladium, the Hollywood Bowl and Carnegie Hall. On the screen or on stage he’s played God, the Devil, Hitler, the Pope, a teleporting superhero, Hamlet, all the parts in Macbeth, Dionysus, a Smurf (twice), the MC in Cabaret (thrice), a James Bond baddie – and political spinmeister Eli Gold on seven seasons of TV’s The Good Wife, for which he received multiple Golden Globe, Emmy and SAG nominations.

His five books include the remarkable memoir Not My Father’s Son, in which he charts his triumphant emergence from a brutal and isolating childhood. His humanity, humour and profound emotional intelligence promise to make his conversation with renowned interviewer Kerry O’Brien an event not to be missed. This instalment of Griffith University’s collaboration with HOTA promises to be a standout in an already acclaimed series of conversations.

This event is also available to livestream – register here.
