Melissa George has retreated from her staunch position of seven days ago when everything was looking much sweeter in Paris and New York and anywhere but Sydney.
“The events of the week have upset me and I want to apologise to any of my fans who were offended about my comments about Australia last weekend,” George told the Sun-Herald yesterday.
“It was never my intention. I’m really proud of my Australian roots and I will continue to come home often to see my family and to work here.”
Good to hear.
George also said, “I’m also proud of my early work in Australia and am always happy for people to refer to Home and Away, but what I really want to be able to talk to my fans about is the work I’m doing now,” George said.
News flash: The Morning Show segment spent way more time on Hunted and McHappy Day than the glimpse of Home and Away.
“I’ve been fortunate to have had a wonderful career over the past 20 years here and overseas, including working on the series Hunted which HBO confirmed will continue.”
And just in case you are feeling peckish, “In fact my favourite croissants in the world are at the Bourke Street Bakery in Surry Hills.”
Hunted begins 8:30 Saturday on SBS ONE (BYO croissants and humble pie).
