Land star Ella Scott Lynch (right), who gave birth to daugh­ter Ziggy in May, is cur­rently in Mel­bourne with part­ner Toby Sch­mitz as he works on new ABC se­ries Ella stars in sea­son two of I haven’t but it looks like I’m go­ing to do a guesty on Toby’s show, so that’ll be dip­ping the toe back in. I’ve had four months ex­plor­ing this new role, which is prob­a­bly harder than any other I’ve done. You can’t hand the baby back to a nurse on set (laughs). I ac­tu­ally found out I was preg­nant on

It was a shock; we were film­ing in 30-de­gree heat and I couldn’t drink beer with the crew. It was funny ac­tu­ally. I told one of the medic guys and he was hand­ing me hy­drolyte on the re­ally hot days and let­ting me lie down on his med­i­cal mat­tress for a rest, so I prob­a­bly looked like a real princess to the rest of the cast and crew! I re­mem­ber one day too, hav­ing a com­plete teary melt­down — Dan Spiel­men knew, we were work­ing so closely, but I did think they must think I’m nuts.

I had seen the first sea­son. The show is so com­plex and there’s so many in­ter­weav­ing webs the writer cre­ates that you re­ally have to put on your think­ing cap to nut it out. Dan and I were try­ing to draw di­a­grams to work out how ev­ery­thing went to­gether.

I know! It’s the kind of thing where you can’t go out in the mid­dle of it and make your­self a cup of tea. You’ve re­ally got to rewind it. They’re ter­ri­fied they’re go­ing to look like a car­i­ca­ture or turn their beau­ti­ful mar­riage into a silly melo­drama but hope­fully she feels (after­wards) she’s been treated with re­spect and Matt Le Nevez has done a pretty amaz­ing job. Un­for­tu­nately I can’t do be­cause I think and

prob­a­bly want to shoot at the same time. I’d do any­thing to work on it again.
