Wake­field breaks away

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - TELEVISION -

Home and Away star Rhys Wake­field (pic­tured) has re­port­edly scored a role on a new US TV pi­lot star­ring Break­ing Bad ac­tress Anna Gunn. The Queens­land-born ac­tor has been cast in Rita as one of Gunn’s on-screen teenage chil­dren, ac­cord­ing to in­dus­try web­site Dead­line.com. Rita is an adap­ta­tion of the Dan­ish for­mat of the same name and is the project of Grey’s Anatomy ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer Krista Ver­noff. De­scribed as an edgy and funny fam­ily drama, Rita fol­lows an out­spo­ken pri­vate school teacher (Gunn) who strug­gles to raise her own three teenage chil­dren while deal­ing with the inane bu­reau­cracy and over­pro­tec­tive par­ents at her school. Wake­field played Lu­cas Holden in Home and Away from 2005 to 2008. His other cred­its in­clude the award-win­ning Aus­tralian film The Black Bal­loon, and the James Cameron ex­ec­u­tive pro­duced ad­ven­ture film Sanc­tum.
