Dr. Bolton, the newest ED physician on Home and Away, has been dealing with tension as the conflict between him and Xander intensifies there.
It would be expected for him to be experiencing some teething issues as the newest employee at the emergency room, but actor Septimus Caton isn’t one of them.
Despite being new to the Home and Away universe, he is no stranger to the entertainment industry, and he has a very well-known father in the real world to support him.
The Daily Star examines Septimus’ private life, from the homosexual marriage debate to his Hollywood career, in honour of his debut as Dr. Bolton.
Michael Caton, a 40-year playing veteran who has been in everything from Back to the Rafters to The Castle, is the father of Septimus.
He gained fame playing Darryl Kerrigan in the Australian movie The Castle, but only received $3,000, or £1,720, for the lead part.
Despite having a $778,000 (£446,000) budget and taking 11 days to shoot, the feature picture made more than $10 million (£5.7 million) at the box office.
Septimus stated of his father’s part in the hit movie: “Eleven-day shoot, $3000, but decades of career following. That is The Castle’s actual payment.
In 2002, Michael wed Septimus’ mother Helen Esakoff at the Vatulele Island Resort in Fiji.
Comments about gay marriage
Michael, Septimus’ father, acknowledged that, before to graduating from high school, he was ignorant of homosexuality.
In a video for The Equality Campaign, the actress, who supported marriage equality in Australia in 2017, acknowledged: “I’m a kid of the 1940s and I ended my high school education not knowing that homosexuality was even.
“I didn’t begin to meet homosexual people until I joined the theatre, and throughout the course of two or three years in amateur theatre, I met some wonderful people. It felt a little confrontational to me because the word “poofter” was definitely used frequently, which caused me to wrestle with my own identity.
But later, I began to view them as straightforward individuals, and we grew close.
The actor continued by revealing that he had met the long-term partner of one of his co-stars.
“I met John, Alan’s partner,” Michael said. They are still together today as they were in 1969. They are in a nursing facility not far from where I currently live. John is 95 and Alan is 88. When I consider marriage equality, I consider what it would imply for them.
Career in Hollywood
Due to the fact that he has even appeared in a Marvel film, Septimus’ career is already deserving of comparison to that of his father.
The actor’s big break came in 2009 when he played a bartender in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, although he has also appeared in the animated films Happy Feet 2 and the children’s movie Peter Pan.
Even Septimus and his father co-starred in the Australian comedy Packed to the Rafters. Michael portrayed Ted Taylor in the show and its follow-up, while his son played Tom Wallace.
