Zoe Nauman, The Sunday Telegraph, reports
It may be the end of the road for Packed to the Rafters but Brooke Satchwell already has a new project lined up - starring in Ten's latest drama Wonderland.
The actor will play the role of uptight and politically correct lawyer Grace Barnes.
"The project has a lovely energy about it, there is quite a beautiful serendipity of things coming together," she says. "It's a very warm, light- hearted look at four couples living in an apartment block by the beach.
"Grace is a very linear, bottled up defamation lawyer, and as you can imagine, she is going to come slightly undone.
"Quite early on she comes across this rather hot South American - Carlos dos Santos (newcomer Glenn McMillan) who shapes her world."The drama, which has been written by Foxtel's Wentworth producer Jo Porter, also stars Michael Dorman (Wild Boys, The Secret Life Of Us, Blood Brothers) as charming bachelor Tom Wilcox.
Jessica Tovey (Paper Giants: The Birth of Cleo, Mr & Mrs Murder) plays the part of Dani Varvaris, Tim Ross (Neighbours, Rush) plays Steve Beaumont and recent graduate Anna Bamford plays Miranda Beaumont.
The 22-part drama, which will be shot in Sydney, has left Satchwell little time for her personal life - especially her wedding to film editor David Gross.
"Make hay while the sun shines, that's what I say. He (Gross) knows I love him," Satchwell says.
But she says things couldn't have been better timed.
"I will be quite a busy girl with a few things on my plate.
"Post-Rafters I was thinking 'that was a nice run. I can do a bit of gardening, or get the renovations going on the house.' Well that's not happening now, but at least I will be able to pay for them."
