Richard’s well-known television credits include the role of Cleaver Greene in the ABC hit series ‘Rake’, which he also co-created, writes and produces. His brilliant performance earned him a TV Week Silver Logie for Most Outstanding Actor and the 2012 AACTA Award for Best Actor in a Television Series. His performance in the role of Prime Minister Bob Hawke in Channel TEN’s telemovie ‘Hawke’ earned Richard critical acclaim along with his award-winning electrifying portrayal as the notorious Roger Rogerson in the ABC’s controversial mini-series ‘Blue Murder’. The 2017 sequel ‘Blue Murder: Killer Cop’ earned him a Best Lead Actor in a Television Drama nomination at the 2017 AACTA Awards. Recently he can be seen in the SBS mini-series The Hunting opposite Asher Keddie and Pamela Rabe and alongside Helen Mirren in the HBO/Sky UK Miniseries Catherine the Great. For the ABC he collaborated with Somersault director Cate Shortland on the two-part drama series The Silence and East of Everything, where he played the lead role of Art Watkins. Richard appeared in Netflix television series The Crown as Bob Hawke and most recently appeared in the ABC mini-series Fires alongside Miranda Otto.

Richard is an accomplished director. His debut film, Romulus, My Father, starring Eric Bana drew critical acclaim when it was released in 2007.

In theatre, Richard has shared the stage with some of Australia’s finest actors including Cate Blanchett, Hugo Weaving, Jacki Weaver and John Bell. He appeared on stage in the critically hailed The Present, an adaptation of Chekhov’s Platonov, at the Sydney Theatre Company and on Broadway. The Present continued his association with Cate Blanchett, with whom he also appeared as the title character in STC’s hugely successful production of Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya, directed by Tamas Ascher. The play had a revival at the Kennedy Center in Washington in 2011. The play was remounted at Lincoln Centre New York for Sydney Theatre Company in 2012. Additional stage credits include Waiting For Godot (including a critically acclaimed 2015 tour to the Barbican, London), Toy Symphony, The Seagull, Hamlet (Company B) and Closer (Sydney Theatre Company).
