My Story

All Saints actor Mark Priestley was found dead last night.

The 32 year old actor plays male nurse Dan Goldman in the Seven Network drama.

The news has rocked the cast and crew of the long-running show. One source told Fairfax Media the mood was one of "numb shock".

Media reports claim the actor took his own life.

Tuesday's episode of the show, in which Priestley's character Dan Goldman married nurse Erica Templeton (Jolene Anderson), was watched by 1.282 million viewers.

A Seven Network statement described Priestley as "a tremendous young person - loved and respected by his fellow All Saints cast members and crew."

Seven's Director of Programming and Production Tim Worner described him as a "brilliant artist".

"His work on stage and screen was admired by everybody who knew him," Worner said.

"His death is such a sad loss. We at Channel Seven will miss his energy and smile.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with Mark's family and friends."

Priestley's co-star and close friend Jolene Anderson is currently starring in the Andrew Lloyd Webber stage musical Tell Me On A Sunday.

It is unclear whether she will appear in tonight's performance.

Priestley graduated from NIDA in 1999.

His credits include roles in the critically acclaimed mini series Changi, and the television drama series The Secret Life Of Us and Blue Heelers.

He joined the cast of All Saints in 2004.

He has also worked with the Bell Shakespeare Company and the Sydney Theatre Company.
