Lazareff performed in many Australian television series from the late 1960s to the late 1980s and made numerous appearances in Crawford Productions police shows including the Sullivans, Homicide, Division 4, Matlock Police and Chopper Squad. He had a featured part in the 1970 ABC-TV drama series Dynasty. Lazareff also appeared in the 1970s historical adventure series Cash & Co.; but is probably best remembered by Australian audiences for his role in the 1970s TV drama Young Ramsay which he starred alongside friend and co-star John Hargreaves.[1]
