Be­hind the lens

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - TELEVISION -

AC­TRESS Rebecca Gib­ney has gone from work­ing in front of the cam­era to be­hind it for Chan­nel 7. Gib­ney ap­peared on six sea­sons of Packed to the Rafters as mother Julie Rafter on the highly pop­u­lar Seven se­ries, be­fore the show ended in July. But now she is de­vel­op­ing a tele­movie for Seven and hopes the pro­ject will get off the ground be­fore the end of the year. Gib­ney says the pro­ject is not about, or re­lated to, Rafters. ‘‘I am work­ing on a tele­movie pro­ject for Seven which is a dif­fer­ent show from Rafters,’’ Gib­ney says. ‘‘We hope to be shoot­ing that by the end of the year and I will be co-pro­duc­ing it as well.’’ Gib­ney says she has been us­ing her down time this year to take a well-earned break, af­ter six sea­sons of Rafters and si­mul­ta­ne­ously work­ing on films like Men­tal and I Am You.
