Early life before fame
If you think that the talented actor has had it easy, then you’d be severely mistaken. Patrick was born with a rare genetic disorder called prune belly syndrome. He had a very difficult childhood and would often have to stay in the hospital. For the first ten years of his life, he was mostly staying at hospitals, and his doctors weren’t too optimistic that he’d survive, but he proved them all wrong after a hefty battle with the disorder. Luckily he came out victorious and managed to beat the odds. Later on in his life, he went on to study at the Victorian College of the Arts, from which he graduated in 2001 with excellent scores.
Before that, he attended St Thomas the Apostle primary school in Kambah and secondary school at Marist College Canberra.
Patrick decided to become an actor after his studies at the Victorian College of the Arts. After graduation, he decided to take acting classes which helped Patrick land his first big role.
Career as an actor
Patrick got his first breakthrough role when he was cast in the television movie The Alice in 2004. After his impressive performance in the role, the movie director decided to give him a starring role in the spin-off series, which premiered in 2005. Later on, he had a starring role in the popular television series Canal Road (2008). This role was followed by many smaller roles in short films, theatre, and television series.
Then in 2010, Patrick played Griff’s brother Tim in the comedy movie Griff the Invisible. After that, in 2012, Patrick nailed a starring role on not one but two ABC comedy series.
