The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - COVER FEATURE -

1

JAC­QUE­LINE ’JACS’

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.

2

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.

3

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.
