In a series of stunning tweets, former ‘Chang’ star Chris Total is breaking the mould and turning his own life into a television show.
In his latest series, ‘The Show’, Total is taking on his own career.
In the first episode, titled ‘I’m Here to Help You’, Total, 44, says he’s trying to become a lawyer, a TV producer and a musician.
“I’m here to help you,” he tweets.
“This is a very big life goal for me, I’ve been working for 10 years on this.
It’s a challenge, a challenge for me.
I can’t believe I’m doing this, it’s crazy.”
In the second episode, entitled ‘I Am Here to Stop the Violence’, Total talks about the violence in his neighbourhood, saying it has to stop.
He says he feels a responsibility to be a role model for his neighbourhood.
On his personal Twitter page, he says he is not trying to get famous.
Total is one of Australia’s biggest television stars and has starred on ABC dramas such as ‘The Great Australian Bake Off’, ‘Chickens’, ‘The Middle’, ‘Scandal’, ‘Downton Abbey’, ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ and ‘The Americans’.
The actor and former boxer made a career on Australian television in the ’70s and ’80s and has appeared on ‘The Apprentice’, ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ and on ‘Scorpion’ and the ‘American Idol’ reality series.
Despite his successes, Total says he still has a lot to learn.
After the tweets were published on Tuesday night, he posted: “Just wanted to say that I have a big life ahead of me.
A lot to do and to learn.”
He is currently on a plane back to Sydney after a brief stay in the US.
A spokeswoman for ABC Radio Sydney said the network was not aware of the actor’s Twitter account.
ABC Radio Sydney tweeted: “We’re aware of reports of Chris Total’s account, and are aware that it was being used by his colleagues.”
