Mr. McIntyre starred as ‘Spartacus,’ the iconic Thracian warrior who led a slave revolt against the Roman Empire.

Notable theater parts include his roles in “12 Angry Men” and “Proof,” both with the Malvern Theatre Company, “Twelfth Night,” “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” and “Much Ado About Nothing,” all with GreenCyc, and in the Green Room Award winner for Best Independent Production, “Macbeth: Rearisen” with White Whale.
Past film roles include ‘Luke Delaney’ in “The Dream Children” and ‘Simon’ in “Ektopos.” Mr. McIntyre also recurred as ‘Sergeant Matt Connor’ on the Australian series, “Rush,” as well as appeared on Australia’s longest running drama, “Neighbours,” as ‘Bradley Hewson. He made his American debut as ‘Bell Captain Lew’ in HBO’s Emmy and Golden Globe nominated hit, “The Pacific.” Mr. McIntyre recently played one of the lead roles in “The Legend of Hercules” for director Renny Harlin and the leading role of Detective Senior Constable Dan Wild in the Australian television film “The Killing Field.”
