Topic: Ed Devereaux


  
  Antipixel | Blog | Ed Devereaux Dies
Ed Devereaux may not be such a familiar name to non-Australians, but to two generations of viewers he was park ranger Matt Hammond in the television series Skippy (about the adventures of an orphaned kangaroo raised by the ranger’s son).
Devereaux died in London yesterday at the age of 78.
Ed Devereaux was a fine actor, and although I didn’t know him, I could tell from his performances in the shows I saw that he was a good man. He had four sons so he was no doubt a good father too.
