Competent, confident and wary of newcomers, Detective Nick Manning has a nose for crime. Nick knows how a smart cop talks, interviews, tricks and traps – and that shooting is the last resort of the weak. But when his one rule is challenged, Nick’s values are called into question.

Noah Taylor is one of Australia’s most accomplished actors and has worked with some of the world’s finest directors.

His credits include Shine (director, Scott Hicks), Almost Famous (director, Cameron Crowe), The Life Aquatic (director, Wes Anderson) and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (director, Tim Burton).

Noah has garnered critical and public acclaim alike, earning international awards including two Film Critics Circle of Australia Awards,  Ft. Lauderdale International Film Festival’s President Award as well as a Fantasia Film Festival  Jury Prize for Best Actor at the 2012 Fantasia Film Festival for Red, White and Blue. He was also twice nominated for Best Actor at the Screen Actors Guild Awards in 1997 for Shine and in 2001 for Almost Famous.

Noah continues to receive critical acclaim for his work as a visual artist. His fourth solo show opened at the Lindberg Galleries in Melbourne in April.

Deep Water airs over two big weeks on SBS, premiering Wednesday October 5 at 8.30pm on SBS.
