Q& A

GORGI COGH­LAN, THE CIR­CLE

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - Q& A -

show – just be­fore Christ­mas – was with Chrissie and Denise. We did the whole nice-to-meet-you when we met but some­thing hap­pened when we started the screen test – we just clicked, and ev­ery­thing fl owed so freely. It was that screen test that got every­one very ex­cited about the show. And it clicked even more when Yumi was screen-tested with the three of us. There’s a mu­tual warmth and re­spect there.

Gorgi, how’s it been switch­ing net­works from Nine to Ten?

Some­one once said I was Chan­nel Nine’s poster girl, and I wasn’t sure how I felt about that, ac­tu­ally! Nine was won­der­ful to me – it was my break into com­mer­cial tele­vi­sion and the place where I learned to de­velop my on-air per­son­al­ity. I’ll al­ways ap­pre­ci­ate it but it’s just one of those things that came to an end. I was think­ing about things I wanted to do – iron­i­cally enough, The Cir­cle was ex­actly the kind of show I wanted to do at Nine – and they didn’t re­ally see me in that po­si­tion. It’s un­der­stand­able but I needed to get away, take some time off and re­assess things. I’ve been very lucky – I had time to stop, think about what I want and re­ally get fi red-up and pas­sion­ate about I wanted to do. And this came along!
