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.
