I think that’s whats so intriguing about her and certainly that’s whats so fun to play. What I found more confronting is I went out to a male maximum security prison and that was much more confronting for me because the energy of that place was really dark.
From previous roles you’ve had with ‘Rush’ and certainly with this show, you’ve become a bit of a lesbian pin up! The section we went to in the male prison was pretty tame in comparison to the rest of the prison, you come to a moment there where suddenly I was in a room with maybe 20, 40, men who were on the inside for various number of things and I suddenly realised how vulnerable I actually was in there.
This is unusual that there are so many women in one show, what was that like as a workplace?
It was great, it was a really supportive workplace and there was a strong sense of camaraderie between all of us, male and female, we really came together because we knew we were testing the boundaries of Australian television.
We knew that the original had come before us and been such an iconic show that we gathered together and did our best. No, not that familiar, since doing the show and getting the part everyone went back and watched some of it, but before that I was completely fresh. So really it permeated Australian culture, if not global culture.
It wasn’t an easy process, but I eventually reached a point where it all made sense and all my questions and confusions suddenly evaporated.
