FIVE CHARACTERS FROM WENTWORTH:
HOLT (KRIS MCQUADE) Half way through her sentence for murder Jacs
is the top dog in the system and isn’t afraid to
wield the power that comes with it. But when younger upstart Franky Doyle starts creeping in on her turf, it could have
devastating consequences for the inmates. Strategic, cold and cruel, Jacs plays a
smart game inside.
MEG JACKSON (CATHERINE McCLEMENTS) The governer of Wentworth, Meg is well respected by her staff but her no-nonsense approach with the prisoners makes her unpopular. Tough on the inmates she isn’t afraid to take a hard line when it comes to prison rules. Married to warden Will
Jackson she has to balance her career and
her personal life.
ELIZABETH ’LIZ’ BIRDSWORTH (CELIA IRELAND) Liz is more at home within the confines of the prison walls than she was as the wife of a wealthy grazier. Down-to-earth and friendly, she is the prison’s peer worker – the
conduit between the inmates and the wardens – and it is a role she takes seriously. She is in her sixth year of an 11-year sentence for manslaughter.
