Anna Torv took home the award for Most Outstanding Actress this week at the 59th annual TV WEEK Logie Awards for her role as political correspondent, Harriet Dunkley in the Foxtel Showcase series Secret City. While Torv did not attend the awards ceremony, she did tape an acceptance speech which you can watch below ~
Of course I grew up watching the Logies so this is really special and I feel incredibly honored. Thank you so much. There’s so many people I want to thank- Chris Uhlmann and Steve Lewis who wrote the book that Secret City was based on. Thank you for your generosity and also for allowing Harry to become Harriet so that I could play her. Foxtel, Brian Walsh and Penny Win, thank you. Matchbox Pictures, Joanna Werner and Penny Chapman thank you so much. And I want to thank Emma Freeman who really did steer this great big ship. That collective and our incredible writers, our outstanding cast and amazing crew came together to create a show that I am so proud of and I’m thrilled to accept this award as a direct result of everyone who worked on the production of Secret City. Thank you.
Secret City‘s Damon Herriman went on to take home the award for Most Outstanding Supporting Actor for his role as Kim Gordon.

A new audition tape for Mindhunter reveals an early look
at Anna Torv’s characterization of Wendy.
The clip, posted by Quinlan Corbett to his Vimeo account, features a reading of his test character – presumably a member of the FBI- having an argument with Anna Torv’s character, Boston psychologist: “Wendy” and another unidentified individual. While Torv herself is not featured in the clip of course, the nature of her character has been kept fairly secret up until now and this latest scene provides an interesting look into her role. You can watch the clip below.
XXX: “No, you need to boil it down for me. Something to reassure the public. We took two vicious psychopaths off the streets so they could never do it again. WENDY: “We stopped them before they got started, right. XXX: “Isn’t that your job? WENDY: “Oh! I’m sorry! Here was me thinking my job was to provide complex intelligent analysis. XXX: “If we can’t understand that analysis, it’s of no use to anyone.
