Drawn to dan­ger

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - FEATURE STORY -

Ade­laide Cle­mens’ char­ac­ter Tawney forms a spe­cial bond with step­brother- in- law Daniel ( Aden Young, be­low left) in prod­uct of the church be­ing one of the only things that has pro­vided her with some sense of com­mu­nity,” said Cle­mens, who is in the US film­ing the show’s sec­ond sea­son.

“But she’s also a very in­tu­itive hu­man be­ing and some­one with a real thirst for knowl­edge.

“What­ever she can find to sat­isfy that, she re­ally latches on to.

“When she meets Daniel, he opens up her world, chal­lenges her and ques­tions what she knows.”

There’s some kind of spark be­tween the two and it’s clear Tawney is un­ful­filled on some level in her mar­riage.

But Cle­mens views the re­la­tion­ship be­tween Tawney and Daniel as more a meet­ing of minds and souls than any po­ten­tial ro­mance.

“For some­one like Tawney, see­ing Daniel freed from death row is al­most like see­ing some­one given new life, al­most like see­ing Je­sus rise again,” she said.

“She doesn’t have any in­ten­tion of threat­en­ing her re­la­tion­ship with Ted but the con­nec­tion she forms with Daniel and the con­ver­sa­tions they have about spir­i­tu­al­ity or the big­ger ques­tions in life is some­thing she doesn’t get from him.

“She never sets out to jeop­ar­dise her re­la­tion­ship or woo Daniel in any way, but she is drawn to him.

“It’s like her sub­con­scious is be­ing awak­ened or pro­voked.”
