Viewers have gone wild over Bryan Brown’s fit appearance in Netflix‘s new series Boy Swallows Universe.

The Australian actor, 76, plays the role of Slim Halliday in the hit new series, a man who was charged over the death of a taxi driver and has escaped from the notorious Boggo Road Gaol several times.

During the first episode, Bryan showed off his fit figure and youthful appearance in a blue singlet.

Fans took to X, previously known as Twitter, to share their shock over the actor’s look and ‘fantastic performance’.

‘Bryan Brown is still extremely handsome. I’m watching Boy Swallows Universe and I have a picture in my photo album when he came into my place of work,’ one said.

‘He looks bloody rough in this [show],’ another commented.

‘Bryan Brown in Boy Swallows Universe. What a fantastic performance,’ a third person said.

‘He is very handsome in Darby and Joan, as well,’ one person added.

Adapted from Trent Dalton’s iconic novel, Boy Swallows Universe is an extraordinary tale that explores the trials and tribulations of two brothers – Eli and August – who grow up in 1980s suburban Brisbane.

The series was released in full on January 11, and plenty of Netflix subscribers have already binged their way through all seven-plus hours – hailing the show as ‘beautiful and brilliant.’

Staying true to its Aussie roots, the series stars an A-List lineup of Australian actors, including Phoebe Tonkin as Frances Bell, Eli’s mother.

The troubled tale first tugged at the heartstrings of many Australians when the book was released in 2018 – with particular elements of the story revealed to be loosely inspired by some of the author’s very own childhood experiences.

Speaking to the Townsville Bulletin in July 2018, Trent recalled that he himself grew up with two unconventional male role models.

One was his criminal stepfather, and the second was a family friend, Arthur ‘Slim’ Halliday.

Describing his stepfather as the ‘first man I ever truly loved,’ Trent, as a boy, would look up to the man he called ‘Dad’ – despite his shady, dark doings as a criminal.

However, when his stepfather was taken away by police, the novelist began to funnel his desire to find out more about his father figure’s secret life into writing a book, based on ‘answers that never came.’
