Marcus Graham out of The Heights

Almost everybody returned to the ensemble of ABC serial.

Earlier this week ABC announced a renewal of its Perth-based serial The Heights.

That was great news given the show hasn’t exactly fired in its challenged timeslot of 8:30pm Fridays.

But some readers noted Marcus Graham’s name was not in the renewal announcement.

A Matchbox Pictures spokesperson told TV Tonight, “Unfortunately due to scheduling conflicts, Marcus was unavailable for Series 2.”

That’s a shame given “Pav’s” storylines with “Claudia” (Roz Hammond) and a certain cliffhanger moment at the end of the season.

How will writers resolve this one….?

  1. Wow. I am super impressed this show has been renewed. I had wrongly assumed otherwise. It is edgy, real and deserving of a much better time slot. Thanks Ita.

  2. There have been plenty of recasts in Australian television drama as well.

    To cite one current example, and this may surprise some, but Irene (Lynne McGranger) on Home & Away was originally played by another actress.

    It’s certainly not a mere U.S. thing.
