EXCLUSIVE: By Darren Hallesy
the vet with a big heart
The first thing that strikes people
about Chris Brown is his friendliness.
Here’s a bloke with striking good looks,
multiple TV appearances and his own
veterinary practice, yet there is not a
glimmer of arrogance from a guy who
has been on our TV screens for years.
Being the face of his own show, now
in its second season on Network Ten,
the Bondi Vet is most at home working
with the animals he has helped.
thought there was no way I was going
to do that. It seemed like the worst job
in the world - working all hours of the
night and always on call.
“I’d help him all the time but I was
determined to not be a vet, no way.
Then my pet dog Claude died when I
was 17, and something in me clicked. I
realised why my dad worked so hard to
save animals. I wanted to know why my
dog died and if I could have saved him.”
After graduating from University
Chris was in a Mosman pub with some
mates telling a story, overheard by a
T V producer, which led to a screen test
at Channel 7. Appearances on shows
like Harry’s Practice, Today and Burke’s
Backyard followed, resulting in his own
show set at his Bondi practice.
“It really is quite bizarre how Bondi Vet
came about. I was doing some filming
in labour, and dragged the camera crew
along with me.
With the pin-up good looks and his profile in full swing, TV’s ‘Bondi Vet’ talks with
Darren Hallesy about animals, surfing and ‘cows with trunks’.
