“I used to compete in the 110m hurdles but didn’t have enough space to train because we live on a very steep hill,” he said.

‘My dad made me a wooden hurdle and I used a 15 meter driveway which we had to practice over and over again.’

‘Just him and me until the sun went down having fun, laughing. I got 2 state medals with his help. Here we are 25 years still laughing and still moving.

Film buffs will be pleased to see filming resume after production closed earlier this month after director George Miller contracted Covid-19.

It is understood Miller, 77, has tested positive and must be isolated at his home in Sydney.

Furiosa is a prequel to 2015’s Mad Max: Fury Road, with actress Anya Taylor-Joy as the titular character.

Furiosa began production in Broken Hill in April, with scenes also being filmed at various locations in New South Wales.
