Personal Quotes (11)

It's an incredible set. It actually exudes a personality and a depth of darkness that invades you when you're here and you're shooting.
Everything is so beautifully thought out that it just gives you your character instantly.
On Wentworth: It's not a pretty place to be. But it's an important place to be the way that its shot here on foxtel.
It's so rare to get a chance to flex your muscles and play scenes and take yourself to places you could never have imagined you'd be capable of playing, and then come away at the end of it and say, 'I did it and I'm so proud.'"

If I can do Wentworth, I can do anything.
On Kaz's exit from Wentworth: There were numerous phone calls between the writers and myself, and the producers and myself, and a lot of co-creating how Kaz was going to end her time at Wentworth. I did actually feel at the end of [season] six that I'd had great storylines and I didn't want to just be around for nothing, and the writers knew, we both knew, that Kaz's time had been served.
Explaining her final episode of Wentworth: I've never done a death before in my life. That morning I came in and the entire cast and crew, everywhere I walked, they'd be wanting to talk, wanting to hug me, and I'd be: 'Please don't, don't. Let me get through the day; I just have to get this done.' I'd sucked every bit of energy and light and attention and commitment I had, and was holding it in one deep breath, until I got through that scene.
Dead silent. Any direction they had to give to anybody, they whispered to each other. The space around me was so sacred and so beautiful and so respectful. I will never forget that.
It's been nothing but the best experience of my life. This show makes you give everything you have.
Discussing Wentworth: I couldn't have done this from Sydney, I couldn't have driven to work and come home and had the detoxing and the deconstruction.This way, I get to the airport, swig a glass of wine, go to sleep and arrive [home] happier.
On coping with the show: I worked out that I just had to run, I had to wake up every morning at 4.30am and run. That was all I could do. Sometimes my husband and son would FaceTime me and I'd be running and crying at the same time, still releasing yesterday's s**t
On Wentworth: Seriously, that is the gift we give each other, because we hold each other in this trust.
