‘I wanted so badly to be in the show!’ Actress Jane Hall reveals she put her new career in midwifery on hold to star in the final season of Wentworth
She’s set to star in the final season of Wentworth.
And on Saturday, Jane Hall revealed she has put her new career in midwifery on hold to join the prison drama because ‘she was a super fan.’
Speaking to the Herald Sun, the 48-year-old Neighbours star said: ‘I had to get this role, I wanted so badly to be in Wentworth.’

She continued: ‘I wrote “Thank you for this job” on a piece of paper every day until I got it.’
Jane, who played Rebecca Robinson for four on popular soap Neighbours, had just finished placement at the Royal Women’s Hospital in Melbourne.
‘The adrenaline I feel in when I’m in a room when a woman is giving birth is not unlike what we experience when we’re truly in the moment performing,’ she explained.
‘It requires a lot of passion and it’s very joyful, just like acting,’ she added.
