Early life

Holmes attended Newington College (1981–1993).[1] He gained an Advanced Diploma in Acting at the Actors College of Theatre and Television.[2]

Career

Holmes was one of the main characters in Sea Patrol's 2007 - 2011 seasons. His character is Petty Officer Chris Blake, the Coxswain of a fictional Royal Australian Navy Patrol Boat.

He appeared as Constable Matthew "Matt" Graham on the now-defunct Seven Network Australian police drama series Blue Heelers. He made his first appearance in the twelfth season (2005), yet because of the show's axing the next year, he only appeared in twenty-one episodes, the finale being broadcast in June 2006.

Holmes is also recognised for appearing in two television ads - one for the website seek.com.au and the other for the Victoria and Queensland Government's Drink-Driving campaign. He also appears in the Working Like a Machine? Kit Kat ad.
