Handsome Australian actor Aden Young was identified as a hot property early in his career, but shied away from roles that would earn him greater fame, instead opting for parts in smaller Australian films. Brown-haired, with pleasant features and a suggestive mischief in his eyes, Young's charisma and charm shone through his portrayals and gave even the nastiest of characters a compelling dimensionality, rendering them almost likable. The young actor made his big screen debut co-starring as a 17th Century French carpenter boy working as translator and guide to a Jesuit missionary priest in the Canadian wilderness in Bruce Beresford's "Black Robe" (1991). This debut performance exhibited his intuitive approach to acting, and garnered notice and acclaim. The following year, he was featured in the Australian production "Over the Hill", a movie chronicling the cross-country travels of a freewheeling grandmother.
