Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Entertainment -

The show ini­tially launched in 2005 to huge ac­claim and ran for four suc­cess­ful sea­sons. But iron­i­cally, Sarah says it’s more pop­u­lar now than be­fore, thanks to Net­flix!

“We have more fans now than we did when we were on air. Stream­ing ser­vices make it pos­si­ble to go back and catch up on old se­ries,” she says.

And while the cast are used to fan mail, she says many peo­ple would be sur­prised to learn much of it comes from peo­ple be­hind bars them­selves.

“For some rea­son, pris­on­ers were al­lowed to watch Prison Break whilst they were in­car­cer­ated.

“We of­ten re­ceive letters from real pris­on­ers who col­lect celebri­ties’ au­to­graphs in or­der to pass the time,” ex­plains Sarah.
