HE may have made a name for himself strutting his stuff in Strictly Ballroom, but nimble-footed Paul Mercurio was doing strutting of a different nature in Brisbane. After several hectic days on the Gold Coast set of Code 111-4 (a US movie of the week), Mercurio took his co-stars, including the lovely Terry Farrell (a Trill in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and the cafe owner in Becker) for a pub crawl. Anyway, one thing led to another and, about midnight, Mercurio decided it would be a good idea for a skinny dip in Brisbane’s Southbank. Good sport that she is, Terry dropped the duds for a dip as well. Sounds like the pub crawl night could have made better viewing than the movie.
