Throughout her career, Deborah Mailman has had supporting roles in many Australian TV limited and mini-series including Mystery Road (2018), Tomorrow, When the War Began (2016), The Alice (2005) and Jack Irish (2018), in which she had a recurring role as horseracing official Cynthia.  

In this short excerpt from season 2, episode 2, Cynthia's life is threatened when someone shoots through her window and into her ceiling while she’s home with her son.

In this brief scene, also featuring Aaron Pedersen and Roy Billing, Mailman manages to convey that Cynthia is a strong woman who won’t be intimidated, and also a protective mother with a sense of humour.

It's another example of the nuance and talent that Mailman brings to every character she embodies on the screen.
