By the time Purcell joined the cast the show has already been running for a few years. What makes this show really extraordinary is the fact that it still runs to this day. So far, more than 6000 episodes of Home and Away have been filmed, but Dominic has appeared on only 3 of them. So yes, his career on this series was pretty short.

Speaking about this series, although as a leading actor Dominic was paid good money, he really had to work hard to earn it. While talking about this period of his life, the actor has said: “I’ve been here [in the United States] for five years, maybe four. I was doing ‘John Doe,’ and I was working ridiculous hours on that, and I was speaking American all day and then I’d get home and speak Australian and I just felt so exhausted by going back and forth that I just decided to speak it all the time. Now I just speak American.”
Purcell’s next big role on television was on hit series Prison Break. As you may know, the show ran for four seasons and during this period has received a number of nominations for prestigious awards (mostly due to the excellent performance by the cast). As about his career on movies, the Australian actor has featured on Mission: Impossible II, Equilibrium, Three Way, Blood Creek, House of the Rising Sun, Assault on Wall Street, Blade: Trinity and variety of other productions. Each of them has contributed to the growth of the overall Dominic Purcell net worth.
