Ben Lawson grew up in Brisbane, one of five boys. He studied acting at NIDA and worked in theatre throughout Sydney and Melbourne. He has been based in Los Angeles since 2008 where he has acted extensively in television shows, such as Firefly Lane, Modern Family, The Good Place, Billions, Thirteen Reasons Why and Designated Survivor, and films, including Bombshell and No Strings Attached.
Ben misses being in the ocean at Noosa, eating chicken burgers in North Bondi and watching live music on balmy St Kilda nights, as well as a million other things he used to take for granted. To My Country is his first book.
