MOVE aside, Russell Crowe: the latest Australian actor is Melbourne-born child actor Gulliver McGrath.

At 13, he has already worked for Martin Scorsese, Tim Burton and Steven Spielberg, and can count Johnny Depp, Ben Kingsley and Sally Field among his co-stars.

Dark Shadows, his second film and first major role, opens next week.

A vampire chronicle directed by maestro of spookiness Tim Burton, it features Gulliver as a boy who can see the ghost of his mother.

Nobody believes him until a mysterious character called Barnabas, played by Johnny Depp, returns to the family after a long absence.
