Maybe a robber, he thought, or a shonky man who occasionally sold VHS players from the back of his car.

So when a casting agent was writing down a list of names for a new Australian thriller, Hounds of Love, she tacked his on the end.

"Director Ben Young looked at it and went, 'Ah OK'. I think he thought it was a typo or something," Curry told News Breakfast.

At first glance you can imagine why.

"My family more wanted me to study, something like mechanical engineering, which is why I went into that," he said.

But as an international student, the 29-year-old found he was having to work all night just to pay his fees.

Adam Goodes once again face of anti-racism fight in Archibald Prize entry

Colour Doesn't Matter was painted by Darwin artist Megan Adams as a response to the racial abuse of her friend's Indigenous son, a Year 6 student.

"He's just the kindest, happy-go-lucky kid so it was really hard to see him so upset," Ms Adams said.
