It comes after Chris announced he would be taking some time off from acting, after discovering he carried an increased risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.

‘Doing an episode on death and facing your own mortality made me go, ‘Oh God, I’m not ready to go yet’,’ he said.

‘I want to sit and be in this space with a greater sense of stillness and gratitude. And then you start talking about kids and family…’

The AACTA Awards ceremony will be broadcast on 10, at 7.30pm.
