Early life[edit]

Ewing was born in Manly and grew up in Forestville.[2] He is the eldest of four children. Ewing attended Marist College North Shore, where he took part in various musicals.[2] He is the first professional actor in his family and trained with John Gibson in Sydney's North Shore. Ewing has two tattoos on his right arm. The first is a Southern Cross as a mark of respect[citation needed] to his ancestors who fought in two World Wars. The second says Carpe Diem, which is popularly translated as "Seize the Day". Ewing's interpretation is "Have a crack".[citation needed]

Ewing played representative basketball for Manly Warringah and he took part in two state championships and toured the U.S. and Canada.[2] Ewing represented his school in basketball, football, rugby, swimming and volleyball. He has played association football for Forest Killarney Football club since the age of six. Ewing was awarded with a NIDA scholarship in 2008.[3][4]
