Paul Rochford

as “Coach Horatio”

Paul started his career at a young age as a child actor on stage in Melbourne Australia. He worked in several live shows and theatre companies around Melbourne before making the leap into Film and Television in his late teens.

By his mid 20’s Paul had become interested in the Action/Stunt side of film and dove in head first.

After more than 10 years working as a Stunt Actor/Performer and behind the camera in the Stunt department on productions such as The Dry, True History of the Kelly Gang, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, I, Frankenstein, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, Wentworth, Preacher, Halifax: Retribution and The Doctor Blake Mysteries, among many others, he has gone back to his Acting roots, opening up even more opportunities to him within the film industry.

Using his connections and the knowledge and skill he acquired from his years and vast career in the film industry he has once again made another jump, this time into Writing and Directing, with his debut film The Funeral winning Best Film at the Single Shot Film Challenge in Sarasota, as well as being named a Finalist at the 2020 Peninsula Film Festival.
