Thai Cave rescuer Dr Richard Harris this week’s guest on ANH’S BRUSH WITH FAME

Thai Cave rescuer Dr Richard Harris is a medical hero.

When the Wild Boars soccer team became trapped in a Thai cave in June 2018, the South Australian anaesthetist played a pivotal role in getting them out.

How will Anh portray his courageous spirit?

Anh Do returns to his painting studio with ten captivating Australians for the much anticipated fifth series of Anh’s Brush With Fame. Anh invites his guests to join him for an in-depth conversation that will inform how he will represent them on the canvas.

The charismatic comedian, writer and Archibald Finalist (and People’s Choice winner) delves behind the public profile of his subjects to learn about the inspirational, heart-warming and occasionally deeply emotional stories that have shaped their lives.

From much-loved journalist Lisa Wilkinson to Aussie film icon Jack Thompson, everyone has a story to tell about the people and stories that have defined them. Jockey Michelle Payne shares how she beat the odds to become the first female rider to win the Melbourne Cup, Olympic track-cycling champion Anna Meares lays bare her extraordinary story of sacrifice, triumph and loss.

With Deborra-lee Furness, Sophie Delezio, Father Bob Maguire, Layne Beachley and Todd Sampson, Anh enjoys intimate and often revealing conversations with his guests – but how will they react when he presents them with their portrait?
