Dr Martin Clegg

Played by Lachy Hulme

Director of Obstetrics and Senior Obstetric Specialist at St Francis Hospital, Martin Clegg is a man of contradictions. His mind is like a steel trap. His personality is like a Chinese box. Mercurial, unpredictable and a man of extremely high intelligence, Clegg is sometimes baffled by people’s negative responses to him. He knows that he has a unique set of priorities and his own way of doing things. He is a brilliant medical practitioner with a sophisticated, convoluted personality. 

But Clegg has a gentle, nurturing and sensitive side to him, brought out in his role as father to Stella (Kim and Renee’s daughter) and as he navigates the ebbs and flows of his long-term relationship with Cherie.

Lachy Hulme

Widely regarded as one of Australia’s most powerful, versatile and transformative actors, Lachy Hulme won the TV Week Silver Logie Award for Best Actor and the AACTA Award for Best Lead Actor in a TV Drama for his portrayal of volatile real- life media baron Sir Frank Packer in 2013’s Power Games: The Packer-Murdoch Story, having previously portrayed Sir Frank’s mercurial son Kerry Packer in Howzat! Kerry Packer’s War (2012).

Lachy began his career as a writer for television comedy favourite Acropolis Now and as screenwriter of the Canadian crime thriller Men With Guns, before starring in the independent feature film Four Jacks, which earned him the Best Actor Award at the 2001 Melbourne Underground Film Festival.

He then co-wrote and starred in the adventure-comedy Let’s Get Skase. Lachy’s other feature film credits include The Matrix Revolutions, The Crocodile Hunter, BoyTown, Macbeth, Killer Elite, Scumbus, Any Questions For Ben? and The Little Death.

In 2010, Lachy joined the cast of Offspring as eccentric surgeon Dr. Martin Clegg. 

In 2011, Lachy transformed himself, gaining nearly 25 kilograms in muscle and body fat to portray Todd Russell, the real-life mine worker who was trapped in the Beaconsfield, Tasmania, mine disaster in Beaconsfield. Lachy’s other television credits include Blue Heelers, Stingers, White Collar Blue, Chandon Pictures, Rush, The Librarians, Jack Irish: Black Tide, It’s A Date, Gallipoli (as Lord Kitchener), The Secret River and The Ex PM.
