With recent news emerging that ‘Offspring’ star Asher Keddie is starring in a new Aussie drama, it seems that her onscreen flame is also working on another project.

Matt Le Nevez who plays ‘Offspring’ resident eye candy Dr Patrick Reid will be starring in an ABC biopic telemovie called “Parer’s War”.

Matt will play Damien Parer, a photographer who filmed Australian troops on the frontline in Kokoda during WWII.

Joining Matt will be Adelaide Clemens of ‘Great Gatsby’ fame.

According to TV Tonight:

ABC Head of Fiction Carole Sklan says “Damien Parer was a man of tremendous courage and personal contradictions. The ABC is absolutely thrilled to have performers of the calibre of Matt Le Nevez and Adelaide Clemens and to be partnering with Pericles Films once again to bring this iconic story to the screen.”

Shooting will commence in the Gold Coast over the next few weeks and the show will hit our screens on ABC1 in 2014.
