Kimberley Joseph has returned to television in 10 Shake teen series Rock Island Mysteries.
She’s a fan of several Netflix titles…
What shows are on your must-see TV list lately?
KJ: Ozark, Bridgerton, Call My Agent.
How has lockdown affected your viewing?
KJ: We weren’t super affected by lockdown up in Queensland so our viewing didn’t change dramatically. I found myself doing more yoga (with Adriene on YouTube) and meditation during lockdowns to keep me sane and we watched documentaries with our 8-year-old son. Fantastic Fungi and My Octopus Teacher were a couple of our favourites.
Which guilty pleasure show are you reluctant to admit watching?
KJ: Emily in Paris. Actually, this was probably my ‘go to’ during Lockdown as I kept yearning to travel and that show seemed to satisfy the craving a little. I love the costumes and seeing all the beautiful Parisian sights. I was pleasantly surprised by the characters and how they developed over the two seasons.
When you settle down for a night on the couch what are your ‘must-haves?’
KJ: Comfy pillows and blankets, a cup of tea, Guylian chocolates and occasionally a bowl of ice-cream with strawberries and maple syrup.
What show would you secretly love to appear on?
KJ: Bridgerton. Fabulous locations and sets, dreamy costumes and fun story lines.
Tell us about your character in Rock Island Mysteries? What did you enjoy most in filming the series?
KJ: I play Emily Young on Rock Island Mysteries. I am a marine biologist working at The Poseidon Institute and the mother of Taylor Young in the series. Our home is one of the ‘go to’ spots for the friends to gather at while Sunny (Craig Horner) and I support Taylor and her friends in their endeavours ..often trying to strike that balance between being a mum and allowing them the freedom to explore the island and enjoy their adventures. It was a super fun show to be a part of, all the kids were such a joy to watch and interact with, they each brought so much to their characters. I enjoyed being in my hometown again, back at Village Roadshow Studios and shooting at all the stunning locations the Gold Coast has to offer.
Rock Island Mysteries screens 5pm weekdays on 10 Shake.
