NEW Photoshoot and Interview with the cast of “A Place To Call Home” Featuring David Berry   2 comments

Here a NEW Photoshoot and Interview with the cast of “A Place To Call Home” Featuring David Berry

From the very first glimpse of a horse-drawn carriage making its way through the cobblestone laneways of The Rocks in Sydney, viewers were transported to another world.

The year was 1953, World War II was over and nurse Sarah Adams had just returned after 20 years in Europe. Arriving with two suitcases in hand, her air of mystery suggests she’s carrying far more in emotional baggage.

More after the jump!

 

And so began A Place To Call Home, set largely in the fictional country town of Inverness, where majestic Ash Park housed the wealthy Bligh family, whose stories – and secrets – ran far deeper than what you’d expect from the well-to-do.

Captivated by a narrative that wove memorable tales of love, loss and loyalty, audiences quickly latched on to the lavish period drama. And it was lauded for its outstanding production and consummate cast and crew.

Now as the sixth and final chapter airs, the stars of A Place To Call Home reflect on their fondest memories with TV WEEK Close Up, before farewelling a show that’s carved its way into the hearts of audiences and cemented its place in Australian television history.

The brainchild of series creator Bevan Lee, the melodrama’s depiction of life from decades gone by immediately struck a chord. From the privileged to the everyday folk and farm workers, this was a snapshot of 1950s Australia and all the attitudes attached to the time.

“It set out to show us what has been, but also what still is,” Craig Hall, 44, who initially thought he’d landed the role of George Bligh over doctor Jack Duncan, having auditioned for both, says.

“It was a measuring stick for how either far we’ve come, or how little we’ve travelled.”

And by tackling intolerance, bigotry and homophobia – poignantly explored through David Berry’s character, James Bligh (for which he scored a Logie nomination) – it’s done just that.
