Round the Twist child star Jeffrey Walker is unrecognisable 33 years on from TV debut


JUST over three decades ago, Round the Twist graced our screens for the first time, quickly becoming a staple of children’s television. 

The beloved '90s classic revolved around a family – single father Tony, twins Linda and Pete, and little brother, Bronson – who lived in a lighthouse in Australia. 

In each episode, the kids encountered all sorts of the surreal and supernatural, from a tree spirit that impregnates whoever urinates on its tree, to a magical chapstick that makes every woman fall under your love spell.

Round the Twist had four seasons, the first two airing between 1989 and 1993, and the latter from 2000 to 2001. 

One of its beloved characters was Bronson Twist – portrayed by Jeffrey Walker – who appeared in the second season in 1993.

Bronson’s character saw him obsessed with food and was all but often the one left out among his older siblings.

Since appearing on the show, Jeffrey, now 38, has changed in appearance quite dramatically. 

Jeffrey has perhaps come out of the show as its biggest and brightest star, directing films like Riot, Lambs of God and even nine episodes of Modern Family.
