It was 1986, and we were all enthralled by an Australian man taking on the wilds of Australia that we were all too happy not to have in our own backyards. Crocodile Dundee featured Paul Hogan and his Australian charm that had us all wondering where the heck he had come from. But we can’t forget the incredible cast that supported the Dundee on his adventures, so where are they now?
He was Wally and he was Dundee’s screen partner. Meillon joined the team for the second Crocodile Dundee movie, but sadly that was the last he would do on any set. Meillon passed away in 1989 after suffering from cirrhosis in his liver. He will always be remembered for his brilliant work and the accolades it brought.
Ritchie Singer didn’t just make a splash in Crocodile Dundee, he continued his acting career for years thereafter. You know him as ‘Con’, but after that role he took his acting skills to another 30-something projects. One of those roles was the TV show Crownies and even acted alongside David Gulpilil, co-star from the Crocodile Dundee series, in Charlie’s Country.
