Deborah Mailman had a supporting role in season 1 of the TV mini-series Mystery Road starring Aaron Pederson and Judy Davis.

Mystery Road is a crime drama set in the outback about two young farm hands who mysteriously go missing. When one of the boys shows up, he becomes a suspect in the other’s disappearance.

Mailman plays Kerry, the mother of the accused boy, Marley. In this short excerpt from episode 4 we see her confronted by Detective Jay Swan (Pederson). Although the scene is only brief, it’s a great example of how much tension and emotion Mailman can bring, even to a secondary character.

In Mystery Road, Mailman also worked with directors Rachel Perkins, Warwick Thornton and Wayne Blair, all of whom she has collaborated with on many different productions.
