Emerging stars Mabel Li and Tegan Stimson will lead the cast of SBS’s short-form drama 'The Tailings', which started shooting on the West Coast of Tasmania this week.
SBS has unveiled its largest ever local drama slate, including a new four-part crime series from Bunya Productions and CAAMA, Copping it Black, to be directed by Erica Glynn and Steven McGregor.
"I'm always keen on working with messy, dirty characters who aren't generic."
"I like the attention we put on having much more well-rounded female characters but I get a little bee in my bonnet sometimes when all this focus gets put on these 'strong female characters'. Women are just strong - that’s how it is."
Australians in Film has unveiled the six finalists for this year's Heath Ledger Scholarship, with Max Brown, Mabel Li, Rahel Romahn, Andrea Solonge, Zoe Terakes, and Harvey Zielinski to contend the 2021 prize.
Rahel Romahn was named the 11th recipient of the Heath Ledger Scholarship in an online ceremony last Friday.
