COM­EDY CA­PER

The Gazette (Derwent Valley) - - FRONT PAGE - SHAUN McMANUS

FILM­ING is wrap­ping up on the sec­ond se­ries of Aus­tralian TV com­edy show Rose­haven this week, but the Der­went Val­ley has left a last­ing im­pres­sion on cast and crew mem­bers.

The se­ries will be broad­cast on the ABC later this year, and pro­ducer Andy Walker told the Gazette that Lach­lan had stolen count­less hearts.

“It’s ab­so­lutely beau­ti­ful, ev­ery morn­ing ev­ery cast and crew mem­ber com­ments on how beau­ti­ful the drive down Lach­lan Rd is, par­tic­u­larly if we’re there just as the sun’s ris­ing,” Walker said.

“When the sun comes up and you see the mist in that spec­tac­u­lar val­ley, it’s re­ally beau­ti­ful.”

Shot at lo­ca­tions across the state, Rose­haven stars Tas­ma­nian Luke Mc­Gre­gor and Celia Pac­quola.

The show has a dis­tinctly Tas­ma­nian flavour, with more than half of the 155 cast and crew mem­bers work­ing in their home state.

The sec­ond se­ries has been shot at lo­ca­tions around the Der­went Val­ley, and other places around south­ern Tas­ma­nia, in­clud­ing Geeve­ston, Oat­lands, and Longley.

Sec­ond-block di­rec­tor Shaun Wil­son said the state’s beauty pro­vided the per­fect back­drop in ev­ery scene.

“We’ve got some very tal­ented cast around that we’re fill­ing the show with, and a re­ally sup­port­ive com­mu­nity that re­ally gets be­hind us when we in­vade with our large pro­duc­tion crew and do all kinds of cir­cus car­ni­val mad­ness,” he said.

Rose­haven will be film­ing in cen­tral New Nor­folk on Fri­day, at lo­ca­tions in High St and Bur­nett St.
