Packed to the Rafters star Hugh Sheridan stops a man from committing suicide

Packed to the Rafters star Hugh Sheridan has revealed they saved a man’s life last Friday after talking a man out of a suicide attempt.

The non-binary actor, 36, who uses the pronouns they/them, recalled the terrifying incident on The Kyle and Jackie O Show on Wednesday.

Hugh explained they were walking down Anne Street in Brisbane, where they were shooting a new film.

‘I was walking down the street and I saw this guy and I had a feeling he was sitting weird… [But he] was dressed well with a suit and briefcase,’ Hugh explained. 

‘I went over and said, “You shouldn’t sit like that because you might hurt yourself,” and he said, “I was kind of hoping I would,” and [it] turns out he was waiting for a truck.’

Hugh said they had to think on their feet by coaxing the man to a nearby pub where the pair sat drinking for a few hours.

‘I said if you still want to do this in half and hour I have a friend who will run you over. If I can’t change your mind in half an hour, I’ll sort it out for you,’ Hugh said. 

The heroic actor said it took a few hours over a couple of drinks before he managed to call the man’s family to help get him out of harm’s way.

Radio hosts Kyle Sandilands and Jackie O Henderson were gobsmacked by the story and said they were thankful Hugh was there to save the man’s life.

Hugh was on the show to talk about the return of Packed to the Rafters.   

The six-part series Back to the Rafters will see the cast return to Sydney to celebrate Dave (Erik Thomson) and Julie Rafter’s (Rebecca Gibney) 35th wedding anniversary.

Larrikin Ben, played by Hugh, returns as a recently married man to Cassie (HaiHa Le), who hopes to start a family but not without a few hiccups on the way.  

The new series will be set in the present time – six years after the show’s final season.

Speaking to Sydney Confidential in May, Rebecca Gibney promised ‘yummy, fuzzy feelings’ around the reboot – but admitted the process was ‘not without its drama’.

‘Just when you get lulled into a false sense of security that it’s going to be this lovely, happy, everyone is really happy situation, it isn’t,’ she explained.

‘The world is a sad place at the minute so I think people want something that is familiar, comfortable and loved,’ she added.
