Tina Bursill joins Wentworth
Original Prisoner star adopts a new character for Wentworth's final instalment.
Respected actor Tina Bursill (Doctor Doctor) has joined the final instalment of Wentworth, to play Eve Wilder, originally portrayed in Prisoner by Lynda Stoner.
“Historically, I was in the original Prisoner,” says Bursill, whose Sonia Stevens character was recently reimagined by Sigrid Thornton.
“When I knew I was coming into the show, I was thrilled, so excited,” she told Wentworth: Unlocked.
“There’s a litany of deaths behind this woman. ”
There are hints Eve will also team up with another character, becoming a ‘formidable duo.’
“I think this is going to be a big finish, a big bang. It’s a very exciting pice of television. Particularly as it’s coming to its close, I think everybody is just putting everything into it. Every bit of energy is going in. It’s wonderful.”
Wentworth: Unlocked special airs 8:30pm Tuesday on FOX Showcase.
