In 1995, Australian rugby player Ian Roberts did something unheard of in professional sports: he came out, making him the first high-profile Australian sports professional to do so. Three years later, he made a career shift, putting rugby behind for acting and modeling.

His post-rugby career has found him in a number of films (the 2005 Australian drama "Little Fish," "Superman Returns") and television shows (The Australian version of "Dancing with the Stars," and the crime series "Underbelly: A Tale of Two Cities"); but with his upcoming role in "Saltwater" he takes on his first leading role in a film playing a gay character. In the film, he co-stars with the writer and producer Ronnie Kerr ("Shut Up and Kiss Me," "Regarding Billy").
