SHORT & SWEET

Sunday Herald Sun - Stellar - - Kate Langbroek - with NI­COLE DA SILVA

Your hit show Went­worth is a re­boot of Prisoner. Ever con­sid­ered re­mak­ingr an­other ’80s clas­sic? Yes – W Who’s The Boss? I’mI a shoo-in to playp Tony Danza. Your char­ac­ter, Franky Doyle, is heav­ily tat­tooed. Fancy get­ting an epic sleeve? More a whole­body tat­too. I wouldn’t be type­cast, right? Now you’re star­ring in the med­i­cal drama Doc­tor Doc­tor. How are you with blood? Real blood, I’m OK. Fake blood is trick­ier as I’m usu­ally the one cov­ered in it. It makes go­ing to the bath­room pretty dif­fi­cult Start­ing out in show­biz is no­to­ri­ously tough. Did your bank bal­ance hit… $6.41? I was the bar­tenders-lash-teacher. I saved all my pen­nies in a shoe­box and did as much indie theatre as peo­ple would al­low. After star­ring in a gritty prison drama, could you ever be cast as, say, the kooky mum in a fam­ily flick? Sure, I’m will­ing to em­brace my in­ner kooky mum. Went­worth Sea­son 5 starts 8.30pm Tues­day, on Fox­tel’s Show­case.
