Wild about Wentworth

WE CAUGHT UP WITH WENTWORTH VETERAN DANIELLE CORMACK AND NEWBIE KATE JENKINSON TO TALK ABOUT THE SUCCESS OF THE HIT DRAMA, NOW IN ITS FOURTH SEASON

INTERVIEWS CARRIE LYELL AND ROXY BOURDILLON

Bea and Allie: the look of love?
PHOTOS FREMANTLE

Four seasons in, and Wentworth – the Australian prison drama based on the iconic Prisoner Cell Block H – just gets better and better. Although some felt season three would have been a natural (read – happy) ending for the show, the new season, which is currently airing in the UK on Channel 5, has won praise from fans and critics alike, and if you’re not watching, we suggest you rectify that immediately. Not least because of the sexual tension building between top dog Bea Smith (Danielle Cormack) and new inmate Allie Novak, played by Kate Jenkinson.

Jenkinson, best known for her work on the Rebel Wilson TV series Super Fun Night, describes her character as “fragile, lost, honest, loyal and hopeful” and says that joining the cast of such a beloved show was “daunting”. But she’s certainly found her feet fast, and her mailbox was quickly bursting with adoring letters from fans. “Even when I was filming the season last year, I was told by all the other cast members to brace myself because the fans were real and out in full force,” the actress told us when we called recently for a chinwag. “I started receiving fan mail before I was even on the show. Someone on social media must have made an announcement about my character’s arrival so the hardcore fans jumped straight on it. I’m not on social media but I have some very diligent friends who do the deep Googling and the deep research for me. They send me screenshots of some of the fan art that has been created.”
