I always knew I had to have everything in its place but now that we’ve spent so much time at home, I realise maybe things don’t have to be at a 45-degree angle on the coffee table. Last time I was starstruck I was at a dinner party and looked over and was like, “Oh, my God, is that Joni Mitchell?” She was sitting on the floor and had this straw hat on with this giant fake flower. I was eventually introduced to her and, trembling, sort of shook her hand. She’s my icon. Last time I danced Two nights ago. We dance around the kitchen a lot, usually to ‘Midnight Train to Georgia’ with several people doing backup as the Pips. My…

five minutes with … matt nable

Over the past decade, Matthew Nable has made a name for himself as one of Australia’s premier storytellers from starring in some of our most acclaimed dramas, including Underbelly: Badness and Mr Inbetween, and writing several bestselling books and screenplays in his spare time. In his fourth novel, Still, Nable tells the story of Senior Constable Ned Potter, who discovers the body of an Aboriginal man on the shallow edge of a swamp in Darwin in 1963. Viciously bashed and shot several times, it’s clear the man was the victim of a horrific murder. However, as Potter sets out to investigate the crime, the policeman soon learns that no-one in the local community seems to care about the death of an Indigenous local. After a childhood spent in the Northern Territory, Nable…

farewell to the bold type

We’ve laughed and cried alongside our favourite trio from Scarlet magazine for the past four years. Now, as Sutton (Meghann Fahy), Kat (Aisha Dee) and Jane (Katie Stevens) return to our screens for one more bittersweet season, it’s time to say goodbye. The comedy-drama follows three 20-something besties as they navigate career and romantic highs and lows in New York City, with their exploits based on the real-life experiences of former US Cosmopolitan magazine editor, Joanna Coles. Previews for the six-episode final season show the girls still have plenty of drama to navigate before finding their happy endings. As Sutton emotionally prepares to move on from ex-husband Richard (Sam Page), after he left when she admitted she’s never having children, he reappears. Kat’s messy love-life looks set to get even more complicated…
