GORGEOUS Aussie actor Tabrett Bethell has hit the bright lights of Melbourne after spending more than a month following a pilgrim’s trail in Europe. Bethell, who starred in the sci-fi TV series Legend of the Seeker, completed the Camino pilgrimage, setting off from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port in France and walking to the north of Spain.
"It is a very Catholic pilgrimage," Bethell said. "I did it because I really needed to walk, really get back to nature. It was beautiful. I walked for five weeks, every day. It was the best gift I could have given myself. You step out of the world, turn the phone off and find you, you find that peace that everyone searches for."
Bethell, a former model, on Sunday night attended the premiere of the Australian-made horror film The Clinic at the Melbourne International Film Festival. The film, which also stars Andy Whitfield and Freya Stafford, was shot in New South Wales two years ago.
"It was quite a harrowing piece to play," Bethell said.
