Author John Marsden and actress Fantine Banulski stop by News Breakfast to discuss Tomorrow, When The War Began, which will make its television debut on ABC TV.

Marsden appears to be satisfied with the TV series version: “It’s pretty rare for an author to be so enamoured of the work that it’s done by other people with their books, but I really loved the film and the TV series, so I’m in a very happy position.”

Both the film and the TV series have been very faithful,” he adds “There is no deviation in any negative way, which I do find gratifying.”

Fantine shares Marsden’s enthusiasm: “It was the first Australian book story I really loved and I strongly connected to.”
