FROM PUGWALL TO BUGDUST: JASON TORRENS - THEN & NOW
So a friend and I were reminiscing the other day... Somehow we ended up talking about '90s Australian show Pugwall. Remember Pugwall? Peter Unwin George Wall? The Orange Organics? Jenny Fleet? Bazza and Orfo? Marmaloid? No?
"Just how old ARE you guys, exactly?"
Naturally, my first instinct was, "To the Wikipedia!"
I logged on, followed the links and braced myself for "Jason Torrens was an Australian actor..." Almost certain I'd click "Personal Life" and read of young Jason's tragic, premature demise.
But wait, young Jason didn't die in a blaze of drug-addicted glory the year Pugwall was yanked from circulation. He went on to star in Neighbours (compulsory for Australian actors) and Newlyweds (score!).
And check him out now, playing drums for Melbourne hard-rock band Bugdust. Not quite The Orange Organics, hey?
The Orange Organics!
There you go, random fact for the day. Anyone care? Nope!
