Patrick began performing at the age of eight while living in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Carrying a multitude of skills, he is now a well-known writer, director, actor, producer and voiceover artist.
Most recently, he played Detective Morelli in Wentworth Series 6 and Adam in Utopia Series 2 and 3. Other television credits include Upper Middle Bogan, Mrs. Biggs, Rush and City Homicide, as well as a long-term stint on Neighbours.
He has appeared in a number of high-profile advertising campaigns, is one of Melbourne’s busiest voiceover artists – with major campaigns including Holden and Metricon Homes – and has several animation series to his name, including 1001 Nights.
On stage, Patrick was in a national tour of The Sum of Us in 2012, opposite John Jarratt, and he returned to the theatre in 2013 to rave reviews as Carter in Lab Kelpie’s production of Fat Pig.
He has also written, produced, directed and acted in several productions for the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, and has directed a number of music videos for well-known Australian artists.
Spending his younger years living between Northern Ireland and Australia, Patrick’s UK television credits include The Vibe, for Channel 4, and Give My Head Peace for the BBC.
Moving to Australia permanently at the age of 15, he appeared in television programs such as Blue Heelers and The Saddle Club, before landing his most notable role of Connor O’Neill on Neighbours in 2001. After several auditions for the show, the producers and writers were so impressed by his charm and talent that they wrote a role especially for him. Patrick was a popular fixture in Ramsey Street and was honoured with a Logie for Most Popular New Male Talent.
His feature film credits include Bush Weed and Scare Campaign.
