The countdown has ended – Australia is ready for the debut of Tomorrow, When The War Began – The Series. Produced by Michael Boughen and Tony Winley, the show is a unique add to the ABC3 usual schedule – not just for its themes, but for the heavy involvement fans, through Twitter, can have on it.
Molly Daniels (Ellie) will be taking over the @TWTWB Twitter account as the show airs on ABC3 (7:30 – 8:15 pm) and John Marsden will be doing a special Q+A session on Twitter straight after (8:15 – 8:45 pm).

In the meantime, enjoy an interview with two of the cast members: Veronica & Lewis Podcast – Madeleine Madden & Andrew Creer.
“John Marsden’s series is such a profound piece of literature in Australia and it’s just a massive part of your childhood. When we were all in the rehearsal space before we started shooting, we read the books and exchanged notes. There are a couple of very enthusiastic cast members.” – Madeleine Madden
“We got to do a lot of gun training, which was obviously a lot of fun. I remember the first time the guns came out and everyone’s faces lit up. It’s even more fun to be shot at! You think shooting a gun would be the funniest thing you can do, but actually being shot at is quite fun as well.” – Andrew Creer
“[John Marsden] came in one of the days and had a look at how everything was going, especially at the characters. He has created such an amazing world for us to interpret. For him to come in, and witnessing what we’d done and what we’ve been creating, and for him saying he loved what we have been doing was very heart-warming. As an actor, you work to create a world that has already been given to you, and to hear the writer say ‘You’ve been creating the world right’ is awesome, you can’t ask for anything else.” – Andrew Creer
“Deborah is such an amazing performer. There’s a scene in one of the later episodes, quite intense, and everyone on the set, when Debrah just let loose, was ‘Woah. She’s that good.'” – Madeleine Madden
“Victoria was beautiful. You go to these amazing ranges, it was a nice opportunity to see the countryside.” – Madeleine Madden
