Anne Tenney: Pop-Up globe serenity

From Sunday Morning, 9:25 am on 11 November 2018

The name Anne Tenney might not ring bells, but when most see the Australian actor they remember her as Sal Kerrigan in The Castle, the cult Aussie movie loved on both sides of the Tasman that spawned a swag of memorable quotes. Others may recall her role as Molly in A Country Practice, which led to Tenney leaving Australia when her character died, to escape the public outpouring of grief  Now she’s lending her thespian talents here by taking on two roles in Pop Up Globe productions in Auckland, opening next week: Richard IIIand Taming of the Shrew. She talks about her career, the highlights and her first time taking on a Shakespeare role.
