Marcus Turner (Matthew Passmore)

Mid-twenties, good looking and equal to Alex in every way – physically matched for size and as expert at any physical activity, from riding to fighting and wrestling. That’s Marcus. He and Alex also have a similar sense of humour and get on well in a casual, matey way.

Marcus is the product of a boarding school in the country where he went with his mother. That makes him yet another son Bryce had with a woman who was not his wife.

Marcus grew up as a skilled footy player. So talented that he was on the verge of a professional career, but fame and fortune went to his head and he sabotaged his own dreams by ending up out of control – drinking, fighting and womanising.

Marcus then went jackarooing to get his life in shape. Desperate to redeem himself in his father’s eyes, he offered his services and was taken on by Bryce in a vague financial management capacity, despite having no formal qualifications. This is not to say that Marcus isn’t his own man, who frequently rails against his situation, challenging Bryce’s authority and asserting himself.

Marcus arrives at Killarney with a secret he has only just learned – that Alex is his half-brother. Marcus is torn between doing his job, feeling manipulated by Bryce, and genuinely liking this bloke – Alex – while not letting his feelings get in the way of the hard decisions he has to make.

Hey matthew what you doing kissing abi
Enjoyed the series but not surprised you were cancelled. Writers and producers changed the characters too much and were not consistant. It seemed like the writers never wanted anyone to be fulltime happy and I've never seen a series where the main characters were killed off so easily. There was too much of a lack of realism. I work in one of the most dangerous businesses in the world with about 100,000 in our industry and even though we lose someone every 3.4 days by death, McLeod's Daughters have gone well over our death rate. Your opening of the show changes so much I never know each time I watch the program by DVD who's going to be in the starring role. That has been my most disappointing part of the series. You killed off or got rid of too many stars and that has been your downfall. There are a lot of bumps and bruises in real life, and I want to watch a program that will make me forget about my hard times, not one that will magnify them. Blessings. Louisiana...USA
