Born and raised in Adelaide, Tim Ross was working as a chippie for his old man when he fell down a well and realized the building industry wasn’t his cup of tea. With a new nose and a few less brain cells, Ross decided to pursue a career in acting and was lured to Melbourne after being accepted into the prestigious Victorian College of the Arts (VCA).
It was here he honed his stage skills, performing lead roles in a variety of plays including Our Country’s Good, Observe the Sons of Ulster Marching Towards the Somme, Victory, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, King Lear, The Venetian Twins and The Perjured City. In his final year at VCA in 2007, Ross was awarded a scholarship for demonstration of outstanding commitment to the course.
In 2010, Ross became an ensemble member of Red Stitch Actor’s Theatre, performing in On Ego, Oh Well Never Mind Bye, Howie the Rookie, The Kitchen Sink, Stop Rewind and 4000 Miles. During this time, Ross made his MTC debut playing Laertes in Simon Phillips’ production of Hamlet, followed by MTC’s world premiere of Return to Earth. Ross then landed a lead on Channel 10’s “Wonderland” in Sydney where he pulled out his old carpentry skills and absolutely nailed the role of Steve Beaumont for three consecutive seasons.
Most recently, Ross was a series regular in both “Harrow” season three and “Dive Club” for Worldwide distribution on Netflix. Other television credits include “Informer 3838,” “Home and Away,” “Underbelly,” “Rush,” “Neighbours,” “The Code 2” and “Mrs. Biggs.” His skills for the screen were developed playing various leads in several short films and television commercials. In 2016 Ross teamed up with “Wonderland” cast mate Ben Mingay to host “Cannonball,” a game show for Channel 7.
Other Feature Film credits include Benefited, Cooped Up and Bloody Hell.
