Award-winning actor Ray Barrett has died from a brain haemorrhage in hospital on Queensland's Gold Coast.

The 82-year-old was admitted this morning and died a short time later.

The actor suffered from chronic low-blood pressure which led to several falls including one this morning.

His long career included numerous Australian film, stage and television productions.

Barrett was one of the popular leading men on British television in the 1960s, including an appearance in the Doctor Who serial The Rescue in 1965.

He also did the voice of an ex-astronaut in the popular series Thunderbirds.

He appeared alongside fellow acting icons John Hargreaves and Graham Kennedy in the screen adaptation of John Williamson's play Don's Party and won an AFI Award for best actor for his role in director Fred Schepisi's The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith.

Barrett was better known in recent years for a string of television appearances in series, including Something in the Air, All Saints and White Collar Blue.
