Jodie Rimmer grew up in a sporty family whose dinner time conversations were more likely to be about the latest rugby or netball news than the finer aspects of television performance or character arc. Fast forward a handful of years and it's Rimmer’s stand-out performances as Donna Chisholm in the David Doherty inspired tele-feature Until Proven Innocent, or as Wendy Snowden (Mrs Peter Cook) in international feature Not Only But Always that might now be the topic of some dinner party conversations.

In this ScreenTalk, Rimmer talks about:

  • Behind-the-scenes details on the challenges of ill-fated sitcom Melody Rules
  • How she felt about the nudity on TV series The Strip
  • How she landed the part of Jackie in the film In My Father’s Den
  • Insights into life as an actor
  • Interesting details about shooting international feature film Not Only But Always
  • How she played journalist Donna Chisholm in Until Proven Innocent
  • Her experiences on Apron Strings
  • What it was like to be in Young Hercules and Xena
