I was job hunting on starnow.co.uk when I stumbled across this little gem:
Wentworth (Series 2) is based on the original TV series ‘Prisoner’. It’s set in a women’s prison.
Shooting starts Monday 23rd September through to 13th February, 2014, in Melbourne
Extras ideally need to have good availability across the shoot dates - as it is set in a prison we need to see these women on a regular basis. Seeking a mixture of ages, body shapes & sizes, ethnicities - tattoo’s are great, bad teeth etc all fine in this environment.
“I finally realized that most people’s hatred of Skyler had little to do with me and a lot to do with their own perception of women and wives. Because Skyler didn’t conform to a comfortable ideal of the archetypical female, she had become a kind of Rorschach test for society, a measure of our attitudes toward gender. I can’t say that I have enjoyed being the center of the storm of Skyler hate. But in the end, I’m glad that this discussion has happened, that it has taken place in public and that it has illuminated some of the dark and murky corners that we often ignore or pretend aren’t still there in our everyday lives.”—Anna Gunn in an op-ed piece for The New York Times (via queenskyler)
