Actor Ian 'Egg' Johnson.

MOVIE actor Ian “Egg” Johnson was seen enjoying some of the sights of Phnom Penh by tuk tuk over the weekend as he was in the Kingdom as part of a family holiday.

Accompanied by his manager, wife Lyn Johnson, and son Warwick and his partner Andrew Feros, Johnson said he had enjoyed flying over the temples of Angkor Wat by helicopter before visiting friends in Phnom Penh en route to Vietnam.
