Janine Penfold constantly on TV
Janine Penfold always seems to be in the thick of it. This week she has been performing in the Mountain Voices Project for the Weatherboard Theatre Inc. doing 3 public readings at the Carrington Hotel Katoomba. Directed by Andy McDonell is has some strong actors in it. Try and catch it and put in a break as well in Katoomba!. Of course beside theatre Janine seems to make the switch to screen with little ease. She is constantly on TV especially fronting up on the Morning Shows for Channel 7, Channel 9 or Channel 10 in advertorial recordings for RFEA. Janine does have a persuasive manner. Well done Janine!
A lovely run for George Zhao
Another exciting talent who is having a lovely run is George Zhao. Since the beginning of this year George has been constantly working in all areas of the business. Started the year with Opera Australia in the lovely production of Aida and then moved on to land the lead in the TV series “Family Law”. This was shot in Queensland and George loved every minute of it. Publicity for the series has just been launched and we keep our fingers crossed for big things to happen for the series. We shall see. George has also has quite a few recalls on other major productions like “Confessions of a Superman”, the feature “Bruce Lee” and “Marco Polo”. George also appeared recently in the theatre play of “The Screwtape Letters” by C.S.Lewis and adapted and directed by Hailey McQueen. So watch this space
