Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries - Early life - Netflix
Johnstone-Burt was born in Edinburgh, Scotland. He moved to Australia with his family when he was two years old, and grew up in Sydney. His parents were both in the navy. His brother is in the army, while his sister is a lawyer. Johnstone-Burt told TV Week's Erin Miller that he chose a career in acting because he was not good at anything in high school, saying “I was a bit of a clown and liked to muck around and make people laugh, and then I went to my first drama class and thought, 'Well, amazing, I can do this for the rest of my life.'” His parents supported his career choice and after leaving Barker College, Johnstone-Burt auditioned for the National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA) aged 18. However, he was told he was too young to attend and he decided to go travelling instead. When he returned to Australia, Johnstone-Burt auditioned for NIDA again and was accepted. For his graduation play in 2009, he took on the role of Jack in The Importance of Being Earnest.
