Television Work[edit]

He started out playing the role of the spiteful and scheming Wayne Hamilton in Sons and Daughters. An original cast member of the show, he continued in the role for the show's entire 1981–1987 run.[1]

In 1989 he was regular cast member of short lived Australian serial The Power, The Passion.

He subsequently played the key role of Philip Martin in Neighbours from 1992 to 1999 (and briefly reprised this role in episodes commemorating the programme's 20th anniversary).[2][3] The character had appeared briefly some years before portrayed by Christopher Milne. Prior to this role, Rawlings had a guest appearance on the show as Marcus Stone.

Since leaving Neighbours he had guest roles in series such as Blue Heelers, Stingers and MDA.
