Burlinson, 55, who was born in Canada and grew up in Australia, worked in TV and film for 15 years after Snowy River’s release in 1982. A fan of Frank Sinatra since childhood, he sang the voice of young Sinatra in the 1992 miniseries Sinatra and for several years toured as the star of a Sinatra tribute. Last year he created a new touring musical, Now We’re Swingin’, celebrating the hits of Sinatra, Nat “King” Cole, Dean Martin, Tony Bennett and Bobby Darin at clubs and theaters across Australia. The father of three will star later this year in The Cup, a movie about the 2002 Melbourne Cup horse race.
