Australian actress Jenni Baird has been in the entertainment industry for many years now, so she knows what to expect from different roles in different shows. However, she got quite a shock when she took on her latest role in the show A Place to Call Home.
Jenni will play an antisemitic character with very strong racist views, something that she was unaware of when she agreed to the role. While she is still happy to be in the show, Jenni has admitted that she is worried how fans will respond to her in her every day life.
Baird explained, "That makes me nervous. I'm afraid people are going to spit at me on the street. (The producers) didn't tell me that (Regina's anti-Semitism). From the audition, I knew she had evil intentions but it (anti-Semitism) only revealed itself as the episodes were going along."
Jenni Baird stars alongside a cast including Arianwen Parkes-Lockwood, Marta Dusseldorp, David Berry, Brett Climo, Abby Earl, Craig Hall, Noni Hazlehurst and Aldo Mignone in A Place to Call Home, which airs on the Seven Network in Australia.
