He added: ‘But you don’t go around explaining what worked and what didn’t, you just get over it.’

Paul, who was once employed as a lifeguard before his acting career, met his first wife Noelene at Granville Olympic swimming pool in Sydney in 1958.

The former couple got married when Paul was 19 and had three children by the time he was 23. But he said he adores being a father, admitting despite having children at a young age, he ‘loved every minute of it.’
