Denise Roberts – Hayes Gordon
I met Denise early in her career when I was teaching at a North Sydney Drama School in the 1980’s. Denise has been a familiar face on Australian television since then in long running shows such as GP,Packed To The Rafters, Mrs Biggs,  Blood Brothers, Razzle Dazzle and Always Greener, just to name a few. These days, while still continuing her acting career, she is also the Principal & CEO of Screenwise Film & TV School for Actors
“Hayes was a wonderful tutor and mentor.  Not only did he teach me tools that would define me as an actor, but they would define me as a person too. He instilled in me the importance of using my craft wisely. Theatre and Film he said was the most dangerous of all the arts because it can influence the way people think, it can manipulate the way they feel, it can make them a ‘gentler giant’.  Theatre was a loaded gun and therefore use it with care.  Know what your are doing with it. Respect it and aim the gun carefully. And this is what I too try to instil in my Screenwise students.”
