Celia Pacquola and Tasmanian comedian Luke McGregor were filming a scene on the main street of Geeveston for TV comedy Rosehaven when this photograph was taken.
The pair are in Tasmania to make eight new episodes for season two of the acclaimed comedy.
“We were walking to the community noticeboard, which is one of the things we always want in the show because they’re a staple of all small towns,” Pacquola says.
In the second season of the series, which was created by, written by and stars the creative duo, Daniel (McGregor) has to prove he has what it takes to earn his place in the family real estate business, as Emma (Pacquola) decides whether small-town life is really for her.
McGregor describes the on-air chemistry between the lead characters as similar to the bond he has with Pacquola off set. “The characters – and also Celia and I – have almost a brother-sister dynamic to a certain extent,” he says.
“It’s fun. There’s a real willingness to go with whatever the other throws up, which often results in very silly banter.”
In season two, audiences will see more of “Daniel and Emma being idiots, and more of the characters you know and love” in towns including Geeveston, Longley, Richmond, Oatlands, New Norfolk and Seven Mile Beach, Pacquola says. Season two of Rosehaven will premiere in Australia on ABC and in the US on SundanceTV later this year
