Ben Gundelach was the main protagonist in the first season of the Australian version of "Secrets & Lies". Played by Australian actor Martin Henderson, Ben makes his debut in the series' premiere episode, "Episode 1". Married to Christy, a realtor, and the father of Tasha and Eva, their two young daughters, Ben is fiercely protective of his family and children. Making his living as a house painter, and best friends with his tenant, Dave Carroll, since high school, Ben lived across the street from the Murnane family, and frequently stepped in when Thom Murnane's father, Paul, was serving abroad. Ben is the one who found 4-year-old Tom's body while on an early morning run, and the first to be accused of his murder. Ben was last seen on the episode Episode 6, the finale episode of the series' first season.
