Oliver traveled to New York to attend a film festival but ended up on the wrong side of a war.
Now he’s looking forward to returning to his native Australia.
“It was an incredibly interesting time in my life.
It was such a great, amazing time in the city and in my country, but it was really hard for me to come back to the States and to come home,” he told The Next Media.
“But I feel so much better.
I’m really excited to go back.”
When Oliver visited New Zealand, he was treated to a tour of his favourite local pub, the Tuckers Arms, before spending the night at the local bar.
He also took a trip down to the iconic Newmarket River, where he met the legendary Kiwi author Arthur C Clarke.
“The story is very important to me,” he said.
“I think that there’s a connection to the New Zealand people, especially those who fought in World War II.
In New Zealand we’re known as a land of the brave, where we fight for the right to be free.”
