Actor
    (July 1, 1953- )
    Born in Maningrida, Northern Territory, Australia
    Birth name was David Gulpilil Ridjimiraril Dalaithngu
    Indigenous Australian dancer and actor
    Appeared in 'Walkabout' (1971), 'The Last Wave' (1977), 'Crocodile Dundee' (1986), 'Until the End of the World' (1991), 'Rabbit-Proof Fence' (2002), 'The Tracker' (2002), 'Ten Canoes' (2006) and 'Australia' (2008)
    He was arrested on weapons charges after pulling out a machete during an argument over his drinking (2006).
    His wife, Miriam Ashley, alleged he struck her and got a restraining order against him (2007).
    During the filming of 'Australia,' he asked Baz Luhrmann, 'That fellow I played didgeridoo with all those years ago, Jimi Hendrix. Is he still around?'
    He wrote two volumes of children's stories based on Indigenous Australian beliefs.
    He has called for government recognition of the 'Stolen Generations,' when children of mixed European and Aboriginal parentage were forcibly removed from their Indigenous families.
    He won an Australian Film Institute Award as best actor for 'The Tracker.'
    The weapons charge was dismissed when a judge ruled that the machete was a 'cultural implement' used to carve didgeridoos and totem poles.
