John Atkinson

Stephen Mulroney in Out of the Blue

Age: 43

Profession: Psychiatrist

John Atkinson - Stephen in Out of the Blue
 
   

A member of the psychiatry elite in Melbourne, Stephen had the seemingly perfect life – intelligent, charming and insightful, with a beautiful home in the suburbs, a dedicated wife, two bright healthy children and a thriving career.

Then Bec Quilter entered the picture and his mid-life crisis began in earnest. Falling in love with a gorgeous young doctor was never his plan, but he'd been feeling bored and restless for some time and she brought out the enthusiasm and vigour he'd lost.

Before he can move forward, however, Stephen needs to make some decisions and be clear with his intentions towards both the women and the children in his life. Stephen lied to Bec about being separated from his wife, but has now followed her to Sydney, to where she fled.

He also has to cope with becoming a full-time single father to his teenage twins, as his wife decides she needs some time on her own.
