Imagine waking up to discover that you can walk through the walls and speak to ghosts but after 150 years of rest, would you want it any other way?
It all began in 1861, when the three very refined Ainsworth sisters died in a tragic coach accident. However, as Rebecca (14), Sophie (13), and Hazel (12) find out, death is no obstacle to them. Having been granted a second shot at life by the all-mighty Ghost Council, the sisters must learn to live life to the fullest (but in a dead kind of way).Realising that their family mansion has been turned into a boarding school for modern-day teenagers, they’re determined to fit in but as young Victorian ladies in a post-modern world are finding it very difficult. They sound different, carry themselves differently, and today’s vernacular will never come naturally to them. It’s a double-challenge, learning how to mix and how to get by as a living ghost (making sure nobody finds out about their secret). In turn, the harder they try to distract attention from themselves, the more they manage to stand out from the crowd.
The only British actress in the cast, 14 year old Poppy Lee Friar spent 4 months filming Dead Gorgeous in Australia last year. Poppy, from Southwark, South London, attends Sylvia Young Theatre School and started her career at a very young age, performing in West End shows including Les Miserables, The Sound of Music and Mary Poppins.
She is joined by young Australian actors, Melissa Howard as her elder sister Rebecca, 12 year old Alexandra Coppinger (represented by Catherine Poulton Management) as Hazel, and Craig Annis (represented by JM Agency) as love-interest Heathcliff.
The series will premiere on Australia's new dedicated children's channel ABC3 in March.
