Now we’ve completed the bulk of recording for our first block of four episodes, we have a moment to update you on our progress – and we’re stoked to announce three more of our guest stars for Night Terrace!
Cate Wolfe graduated from the Victoria College of the Arts in 2010, having won the Beleura Estate John Tallis award for Drama in her second year. As well as a slew of theatre appearances, Cate has appeared on Australian TV in Winners and Losersand Australia on Trial, but is best known as Mattie O’Brien in popular ABC1 series The Doctor Blake Mysteries starring Craig McLachlan.
Night Terrace isn’t Cate’s first brush with time travel – she features opposite Ethan Hawke, Sarah Snook and Noah Taylor in the new sci-fi thriller Predestination, based on the classic time travel short story “All You Zombies” by Robert Heinlein. Predestinationpremiered at the SXSW film festival in March, so watch out for Cate in cinemas later this year!
Comedian Cal Wilson is well-known to Australian audiences not only from her live stand-up but from appearances on everything from Dancing with the Stars and Thank God You’re Here to Spicks and Specks, Good News Week, SkitHouse, Last Man Standing, The Wedge and QI. More recently Cal appeared in hit ABC comedy It’s A Date, and will soon be seen in the upcoming short film anthology Locks of Love. Night Terrace episode one will reunite Cal with her opposing team captain from Channel 7’s SlideShow, Toby Truslove.
Francis Greenslade is a twenty year veteran of Australian television with roles in many series including The Damnation of Harvey McHugh, Full Frontal, SeaChange and Blue Heelers, and he currently stars in Winners and Losers as Denise Scott’s husband. Francis is also well-known as a long-time collaborator with Shaun Micallef, appearing inThe Micallef Program, Welcher & Welcher, Newstopia and Mad As Hell.
Francis might not be known for sci-fi action, but he has form: in 1990 he appeared in Ultraman: Towards the Future, the only series of this Japanese series to be filmed in Australia. Ultraman is a Tonkusatsu show, chronicling the adventures of a masked hero fighting rubber-suited monsters – the Towards the Future version featured Gia Carides as the female lead! You can watch Francis’ episode, “Tourists From the Stars”, in full below; you’ll spot him trying to drunkenly chat up an alien about five minutes in.
