HOT ROLE, BUT LESS HEAT OVER­ALL

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Guide -

LES Hill shares the Scorched bill with ac­tors Vince Colosimo, Cameron Daddo, Rachael Carpani, Anita Hegh and Libby Tan­ner.

Two-time gold Lo­gie win­ner Ge­orgie Parker also stars— as the New South Wales Premier strug­gling to keep the bush­fire cri­sis un­der con­trol.

Af­ter leav­ing All Saints in 2005, Parker says she is happy to re­turn to the small screen, al­beit in a less-de­mand­ing role.

‘‘ All Saints was great, but it was a con­scious de­ci­sion for me to change my pri­or­i­ties when I had my daugh­ter,’’ Parker says.

‘‘With TV it re­ally takes a big part of you, ev­ery­thing re­volves around it. But this is so re­fresh­ing, it’s like a burst of in­spi­ra­tion.

‘‘And it makes it much eas­ier to have a bal­ance be­tween work and hav­ing a fam­ily life. There’s plenty of time for both.’’

When Scorched screens on Sun­day, Parker will be an­tic­i­pat­ing it as much as any­one, but there will be no fan­fare in her house.

‘‘I never watch my shows be­fore­hand. I like to sit down and watch them when every­one else does, ads and all.

‘‘It’ll just be my hus­band and I. There won’t be a party or any­thing, though I ex­pect to get lots of text mes­sages.’’
