Share this article
Channel 7’s new romantic thriller Secret Bridesmaids’ Business premiered on September 29! This drama-filled show is worth obsessing over, starring Australian actresses Abbie Cornish, Georgina Haig and Katie McGrath.
So, what’s it about? “A bride’s perfect wedding turns deadly after one of her bridesmaids unknowingly invites a malevolent stranger into their lives, triggering a deadly chain reaction that blows open a hidden world of secrets. As the thriller series unfolds, the power of female friendship could be the difference between life and death.”
Cornish plays Melanie, a mother and wife with a successful career and a beautiful home. To people, it appears she has the perfect life, but she’s put to the test by harsh truths that make her ideal world spiral out of control.
“There is a sharp dichotomy between Melanie’s seemingly perfect suburban life with a happy marriage and wonderful children versus her increasing ventures into the unknown and often dangerous,” Abbie said of the character. “From the first moment, I was drawn to Melanie’s complexities as a mid-30’s woman whose concerns, stresses, and priorities are eerily relevant to suburban life. Hers is a story begging to be told.”
McGrath plays Saskia, an ambitious lawyer and an “arresting, high-octane British truth-bomb that is relentlessly intelligent and fiercely loyal”. “I love the core friendship of the three very different women. Each woman is strong in her own way, but knows how to be vulnerable with their friends.” Katie stated.
Haig plays Olivia, who’s near-death experience with leukaemia has motivated her to follow her dreams. She is “vibrant, witty and an optimist”, but when she discovers something dark about a loved one, it drives her to bury her own secret to protect those around her. Georgina spoke of her character: “Olivia is a grounded optimist who tries to be less vulnerable than she is, because she wears her heart on her sleeve but wishes she didn’t so much. She’s tough one minute then crumbling the next.”
