Madeleine Mad­den: ‘We all got gas­tro on set!’

Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Behind The Scenes -

In­dige­nous rights ad­vo­cate Madeleine is busy mak­ing her mark on the act­ing scene, star­ring in the Pic­nic At Hang­ing Rock re­vamp and now killer new Aussie drama Mys­tery Road. Here, she shares her be­hind-the-scenes an­tics and who her idol is.

What was it like to work on Mys­tery Road?

I loved ev­ery mo­ment of it. Ev­ery role I choose I’m very se­lec­tive about. As an In­dige­nous woman in the me­dia, I want to help cel­e­brate our sto­ries – and that’s what this show has al­lowed us to do.

Who is your in­dus­try icon?

Thandie New­ton. She’s incredible, and a great ad­vo­cate for di­ver­sity on screen. She al­ways plays re­ally strong char­ac­ters.

What was it like be­ing part of Pic­nic At Hang­ing Rock?

It was incredible, and in­ter­na­tion­ally it’s been re­ceived re­ally well, too. We had some of the best peo­ple in the in­dus­try work­ing on it, so you could re­ally trust the process. I was so ex­cited.

What was your worst mo­ment on set?

We all got gas­tro when we were shoot­ing our pic­nic scene. A bunch of girls in white dresses with gas­tro wasn’t funny at the time – but now it’s hi­lar­i­ous! MYS­TERY ROAD Sun­day, 8.30pm, ABC
