Jessica Marais drops out of Halifax: Retribution
Jessica Marais was due to reunite with Rebecca Gibney in upcoming Nine drama.
Jessica Marais is no longer appearing in upcoming Nine drama Halifax: Retribution.
In July she was announced as joining former Packed to the Rafters co-star Rebecca Gibney, alongside Anthony LaPaglia, Jacqueline McKenzie, Rick Donald, Hannah Monson and Craig Hall.
According to the Sunday Herald Sun, Marais was to have had a small role in the 8 part series.
A Nine spokesperson said, “Unfortunately the shooting time-frame just did not work with Jessica’s schedule and personal commitments.”
Last year Marais was announced as a key cast member of Nine’s Bad Mothers drama but withdrew to focus on her health.
Meanwhile Seven is pursuing original cast members of Packed to the Rafters for a potential revival for Amazon Prime.
Filming of the final block of Halifax episodes begins in Melbourne today and is set to screen in 2020.
