Q& A

JULIE ECK­ER­S­LEY ECK­ER­S­LEY, DEAD GOR­GEOUS

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - Q& A -

their best in­ter­est she’ll pop up un­ex­pect­edly – pop her head through a wall, per­haps! – and say ‘ Hmmm, is that re­ally the choice you want to make here?’ The de­scrip­tion I was given of Agatha when I au­di­tioned was ‘ She’s the aunt every­one wanted to have com­bined with a Yoda of the af­ter­life’!

You’ve got an eclec­tic cast on this show – some vet­er­ans of stage and screen along­side the rel­a­tive new­com­ers play­ing the sis­ters.

They en­joyed ev­ery mo­ment of it, even when they were worn out.
