A few years later, Kwanten landed a leading role in the series as Vinnie Patterson and stayed with the show for three seasons.

In the U.S., Kwanten had a leading role in "Junction Boys" and guest-starred in "The Handler" and "Tru Calling." Kwanten made his debut as a regular cast member in an American series on The WB's "Summerland" as Jay Robertson.
