Writer Biography - Brian Jewell

I was born to Tony and Pauline Jewell in Leeton, New South Wales, Australia 1963. I studied dramatic arts and went on to be cast in stage productions like The Wizard of Oz, Up the Down Staircase, Big Rock at Candy's Mountain and others. In 1981 aged seventeen, I pursued a career in the Australian Army. After two blocks of Military service, spanning over twelve years, I became a Health Care Professional. I took up screen acting in 2014. Then in 2018, my partner convinced me to put pen to paper and I write my story. Over the next four and a half years, I wrote the screenplay "FIELDS OF GREEN". I'm a versatile character actor with soft blue eyes and a welcoming smile. As a comic actor with an Aussie roughness and outback knowledge, I can use my broad skill set to excel in dramatic and comic-styled roles.

Writer Statement

I dreamed of becoming an Infantry Soldier and following in my ancestor's footsteps. Unfortunately, that would be short-lived as I would, have inherent PTSD after a fatal military accident. I lost my confidence, my self-a-stream. I lost the ability to hold a relationship. I would be angry and sad, all at the same time. I would experience intrusive dreams and memories. I would become an alcoholic and try to drink myself to death. Today, forty years on, I started to get a clear head and gave up alcohol. Now, my aim is to bring my true story to the WORLD in the hope I might be able to educate people on how PTSD affects not only the sufferer but entire families. Fields of Green is a provocative story of addiction, PTSD, Military bureaucracy and overcoming tragedy. This is my true story.
