Marta Dusseldorp is an absolute revelation as Nurse Sarah Adams in the hit series “A Place To Call Home”. Thanks to her soulful performance over the last 4 years “A Place To Call Home” (Foxtel Network, Australia) has seen its viewership and fan base expanded into over 120 markets worldwide including the U.S. courtesy of the brilliant Acorn TV, thankfully for fans season 4 finally premiers in the U.S. on Thanksgiving Day.
This past July, many were surprised when Marta wasn’t nominated for the Lead Actress Drama Series Emmy® for her outstanding performance in Season 3 of “A Place To Call Home”. Her work on the series is internationally acclaimed, riveting, and emotionally transcending. Had she been nominated the outcome of the category would certainly have been different.
Up until now Marta has clearly been Australia’s best kept secret, acting on television since 1992, it is wonderful that her immense talent is being recognized.
In addition to “A Place To Call Home” Marta has two other hit series airing on Australian TV and exclusively via Acorn TV in the U.S. “Jack Irish” with Guy Pierce and her Logie® award winning (Australian Emmy®) work as Janet King in “Janet King”. Yes, that is right Marta Dusseldorp stars in 3 hit television series all at the same time.
Fun Fact: On July 27, 2009 Marta won a Helpmann Award (Australian Tony®) Best Supporting Actress in a Play for her co-starring role opposite Cate Blanchett (yes, the Cate Blanchett) in the hit acclaimed theatrical production of “War of the Roses.”
Hopefully next July, season 4 of “A Place To Call Home” picks up about 20 Emmy Nominations followed by 20 wins come September. In the meantime if you don’t have Acorn TV you can sign up today and begin binge watching Marta Dusseldorp today on “A Place To Call Home”, “Janet King”, and “Jack Irish.” You will be glad you did.
