PAC­QUOLA SPREADS WINGS IN TAS­MA­NIA

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - NEWS -

“WHAT’S a way Luke and I can talk rub­bish to­gether?” That’s Celia Pac­quola’s ex­pla­na­tion of how Rose­haven was born.

Pac­quola and Luke McGre­gor (below) met on ABC com­edy se­ries Utopia and im­me­di­ately struck up a friend­ship.

Be­tween scenes they’d hang out and, in her words, “talk s---”. The end re­sult is a quirky eight­part com­edy se­ries set in ru­ral Tas­ma­nia.

McGre­gor plays Daniel, who re­turns to Rose­haven to help his mother with her real es­tate busi­ness.

Daniel is shocked when best friend Emma (Pac­quola) turns up on his doorstep. Emma is meant to be on her hon­ey­moon but has done a run­ner.

“Luke is from Tas­ma­nia so we thought it would be a great place to come to film,” Pac­quola says.

The 33-year-old has fea­tured on Off­spring and is a reg­u­lar on Have You Been Pay­ing At­ten­tion?.

But this was a chance to spread her wings.

“If some­one had writ­ten this project and asked me to act in it, I might not have done it,” she says.

“What is new about this is the cre­ative side. Emma is 33 go­ing on 16. She’s in a silly mood all the time.

“Daniel is Luke if he’d never found com­edy.”
