Australian actor Peter Hardy has been revealed as the victim who tragically drowned at a Fremantle beach last week aged 66.
The actor played Jimmy Drane in three episodes of iconic Aussie soap Neighbours back in 1997, but is best known for his roles in McLeod’s Daughters, crime drama Chopper.
His brother Michael shared the tragic news to social media on Friday: ‘I’m devastated to say that my brother, Peter Hardy, passed away suddenly this morning… Rest in Peace my beloved little brother.’
Tributes have started to pour in following the tragic news of Hardy’s death.
‘This news is such a heartbreaking shock. He’ll be held in the wide arms of the ocean he grow up beside, and in the hearts of all those he welcomed into his vital and witty orbit. Sincere condolences to his family, friends and colleagues,’ Ross Anderson wrote.
His friend Andy Burns said: ‘On the morning of March 16th a dear friend was taken from us… the amazing and beautiful Peter Hardy drowned while snorkelling at South Beach Perth.’
‘He was 66 years old and looked like a Greek god, so fit, and so happy to be back in his native WA visiting from London where he had made his home.’
‘Words cannot express how deeply I feel this loss, We’ve been close friends since living together in Neutral Bay Sydney in the mid 80s.’
