Foxtel Insider Interview

Foxtel Insider caught up with Anna Torv, Marcus Graham, and Benedict Samuels to chat about “Secret City”! “Secret City” premieres June 5 at 8:30pm on Showcase.

INSIDER: There’s a lot of expectation about the series and the books that it is based on.

ANNA: Secret City is inspired by the books. There was a big push to emphasis the thriller element from the books, which were a lot lighter in tone.

Steve Lewis is a really respected journalist as well.

MARCUS: He carries a lot of clout too. There was one point where he got in touch with a representative from ASIO and opened a few doors that were rare to enter through. It was quite extraordinary.

ANNA: We did all those scenes in the Prime Minister’s courtyard too.

INSIDER: How does that feel as an actor to be able to access these kinds of places?

MARCUS: Wherever you go you’re with a film crew that kind of take over. But actually in Parliament House, that didn’t really happen. I think everyone was kind of enamoured by the place. Everyone was really polite and quiet. And perhaps feeling like they were being watched all the time.

ANNA: We were. You couldn’t even go to the bathroom without somebody with you.

MARCUS: Just seeing some of these politicians going about their daily business was really interesting. Filming outside of what was then Tony Abbott’s office where those flags are, was a mixture of strangeness, which was really interesting.

ANNA: Getting an insight into the members of the press that actually work at Parliament House and the fact that they can run straight from a media conference to their office was really fascinating. Going from this order of calm at the conference to this chaos in the office of people running around saying, “I’ve just got this!’

INSIDER: Foxtel is establishing a name for hard-hitting, great dramas. What will differentiate this show from others that are out there?

BENEDICT: The style and drama that has been delivered has established a great drive in this series. It’s been a great cast to work with and collaborated with telling a story in an area that hasn’t really been broached before and the way in which it is shot too is a token of the quality that the show has set out to achieve, which makes it stand out too.
