Of all the things Iain Glen cherishes about Sydney, perhaps his favourite is a small rectangular piece of plastic issued by the government. “I love my Opal card,” he says. “Currently I have about $22.50 on it.

At the age of 52, actor Iain Glen has become a pin-up. At a time when his fine features have begun to ripen, when a waffle of wrinkles has appeared on his handsome brow, when his hairline is inching north as roles as a romantic lead head south, he has found himself hot, hot, hotter than ever.
