DRAMA TAYLOR-MADE FOR STONE

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - NEWS - By Tif­fany Dunk

THERE were many things which drew Yael Stone back to Aus­tralia to star in four-part drama Deep Wa­ter.

And chief among them was co-star Noah Taylor (left, with Stone).

“Ob­vi­ously I have my Aus­tralian film and TV pal­ette set by his face, so it was re­ally ex­cit­ing to work with some­body like that,” she says of Taylor, who has gone from Aussie films such as The Year My Voice Broke to hits such as Game of Thrones.

Re­turn­ing from their cult over­seas series – Stone is a lead­ing lady in Or­ange is the New Black – to head­line the crime drama, the pair play po­lice part­ners charged with in­ves­ti­gat­ing the mur­der of a young gay man.

Loosely in­spired by events in the ’80s and ’90s in Syd­ney, Stone says the fact she had no idea of the story was another rea­son she took the role.

“The fact these things have … gone on within my life­time in the city I grew up in and I had no idea un­til now is hor­ri­fy­ing,” she says.
