Time jump

makes for juicy sto­ries, says APTCH cast

TV Soap - - Star News -

the de­ci­sion to move A Place to Call Home four years ahead to 1958 for sea­son five was a pop­u­lar one for the cast of the show. Ari­an­wen ParkesLock­wood who plays olivia was most ex­cited about the prospect of act­ing along­side a five-year-old boy af­ter two sea­sons of work­ing with mul­ti­ple ba­bies who played her char­ac­ter’s son Ge­orgie. “the ba­bies were won­der­ful but my arms were get­ting tired,” she ex­plains. “Xavier is the boy who plays Ge­orgie — he’s so beau­ti­ful, he’s so gor­geous. He comes up to me on set and will tell me a joke — that he’s made up — he’s such a sweet­heart … so I’ve got one [this time] as op­posed to I think I had 35 ba­bies over the course [of the show].”

Mean­while Sara Wise­man who plays carolyn says the time jump is a great way to bring new en­ergy into the se­ries. “It was won­der­ful that the sto­ries [in sea­son four] could be wrapped up,” she says. “And it gave Be­van [Lee, cre­ator and writer] the op­por­tu­nity to em­bark onto new sto­ry­lines rather than have to con­tinue to pay off old ones so it’s al­most like a big breath of fresh air.”
