HOT ROLE, BUT LESS HEAT OVERALL
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.’’
