Gary Sweet (born 22 May 1957 in Melbourne) is an Australian film and television actor known for his roles in Alexandra's Project (2003), Police Rescue, Cody, Big Sky, The Battlers, Bodyline and Stingers. He grew up in Warradale, South Australia and attended Brighton high school in Adelaide. He later obtained a teaching degree and whilst at Sturt Teachers' College took up drama. His first role was in low-budget horror film Nightmares. In the early 1980s, Sweet became recognisable through the on-going role of Leslie 'Magpie' Maddern in the Crawfords television series The Sullivans. In 1984, Sweet had his first major role as Donald Bradman in the Network Ten miniseries Bodyline, the story of the 1932–33 Test cricket series between England and Australia. The award-winning (and highly underrated) 1987 Australian TV movie "The Great Bookie Robbery" was a gritty true-crime story seeing Sweet's character "Chico white" playing the inside man trying to infiltrate the close-knit bank robbers. Between 1990 and 1996, Sweet starred in the drama series Police Rescue as Sgt. Steve "Mickey" McClintock.
