Positive Celebrity Exclusive: Wentworth Con 2019!
The list for best Australian tv-shows is a mile long. Regardless, it’s safe to say Wentworth tv show easily earned its place in the top ten.
With that in mind it’s no surprise Wentworth season 8 and season 9 have been commissioned, making fans wonder, how the plot will develop for the finale.
Further, it’s predicted Wentworth season 8 and 9 will go into production mid-October 2019 and wrap mid-June 2020.
The show’s direction has fans diving in more deeply on the direction of Wentworth, especially after Wentworth Con 2019.
Question and answer sessions sparked many questions about further seasons including:
- Why is “The Freak,” alive and who let her out of the grave?
- Does Bea Smith (Danielle Cormack) have a chance at returning?
- Most importantly, Franky and Bridget’s relationship.
Wentworth Con 2019 Q&A panels
The Wentworth Con Q&A panels were everything fans expected and more, for example, the overwhelming emotion to see a packed ballroom with Wentworth fans who know every line for every brilliant character seen on screen.
Most importantly, it brought Wentworth talent to tears as they filled with utter shock and love due to the amount of admiration.
Nicole Da Silvia opened up about Wentworth, sharing her thoughts on it feeling “surreal,” on an online Australian news outlet:
“I’m getting more and more sideways glances now the show is available here. People are coming up to me in the supermarket. I’ve had a few fan encounters, which is kind of surreal. I’m very used to not being recognized at all.”
Cormack shared “it’s a dream come true,” to the cast and crew.
“You’d be hard-pressed to find any actor, producer, director or crew member who doesn’t want their work to reach as far and wide as it can.”
“For our show to be recognized internationally is a testament to the stories, themes, characters, and performances. It’s incredibly exciting and I’m really proud.”
WENTWORTH CON 2019 – LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA
The 2019 Wentworth Con in Los Angeles at the Hyatt across from LAX was an absolute success.
Kiana Clark owner and organizer of Wentworth Con gave all Wentworth fans memories that will last a lifetime.
Wentworth Con 2019 brought our favorite talent from Australia to the United States.
Libby Tanner, Celia Ireland, Danielle Cormack, and Tammy Macintosh took the stage for a question and answer panel.
The emotional grief is real and hats off to Danielle Cormack who truly showed the realities many people face on a daily basis.
Unfortunately, losing a child before and after birth is a trial lived often, and there are those who are silent about the loss due to feelings of embarrassment.
Bea Smith brought her character to life, she was able to deliver the message of grief, acceptance, and love, helping others as she walked her Wentworth related trials.
In addition, Liz Birdsworth (Celia Ireland) gave viewers an inside look at her hurting her family, delivering the message of addiction, which comes with pain.
In fact, do you remember when Lizzy and Boomer (Katrina Milosevic) bopped heads due to “breaking the lager,” rule, leaving Liz to feel as good as dead?
Even so, they became friends with Liz, defending Boomer in front of her mentally abusive mother.
Boomer and Liz had a friendship so strong, the promise Boomer made to Liz about putting her out of her misery as her dementia escalated, so strong, she smothered her with a pillow and we all cried.
Tiffany Dale who spoke with Positive Celebrity shared her thoughts on how well the actors deliver inspiration.
“I absolutely love this testimonial. It defies judgment. Wentworth is so inclusive and the actors reflect that.”
The whole Wentworth cast and crew did an amazing job at delivering that message.
Despite our struggles, it was comforting to attend Wentworth Con, share our struggles during the Q&A and get a true response from the talent who took on our trials and successfully delivered it on screen.
Wentworth Con Hilarious Moments
It was Chelsey Handler who said, “if you can make someone laugh you can make someone listen.”
She was completely right, Danielle left us with a joke that will last a lifetime after she shared a story about her pant zipper problems.
“I’ve been having this zipper problem today, I’m about to take a picture and there’s my… “
You hear a loud shout from within the crowd “pineapple.”
Danielle Cormack lost it, laughing “is that what you call it, okay, my pineapple.” She continued, “you guys are never going to be able to look at a pineapple the same,” then the crowd lost it.
I will forever refer to my lady parts as “my pineapple,” for life.
DANIELLE CORMACK – PINEAPPLE VIDEO SNIPPET
The moment Danielle Cormack ran to the stage from the opposite end of the venue the crowd went wild. She truly is the “top dog.”
She loved to react scenes, answer questions and most importantly, be herself on stage.
Isn’t it inspiring to see actors for who they are up and personal?
In the end, we have the perfect idea of how talented they truly are when we see them in our living rooms and bring that same energy to the stage.
Cormack had some funny moments with the fans, sharing how her zipper was down during the Wentworth Con round table meet and greets.
Most importantly, we will never look at a Pineapple the same way again… which is totally not a bad thing (haha).
CELIA IRELAND ON ACTING DRUNK
During Celia Irelands Q&A at Wentworth Con, 2019 fans truly wanted to know “how she played being sh*tfaced on set,” proceeding to laugh and inquire if she was actually drunk.
Ireland laughed hysterically sharing jokes about being allergic to most alcohols.
Despite not drinking much, she showed everyone just how she managed to act so wasted on set and it was brilliant.
TAMMY MACINTOSH BEST MOMENTS
Next, there’s the gorgeous and energetic Tammy Macintosh who shared a lot of behind the scenes which were fun to film.
LIBBY TANNER ON KISSING FRANKY
Lastly, Libby Tanner who played as Nicole Da Silvia’s therapist in Wentworth shared how their relationship developed and when she felt her character, Bridget fell in love with Franky.
Most importantly, we wanted to know, was Franky a good kisser?
MEET AND GREET ROUNDTABLES
The Wentworth Con 2019 provided us more than just a Q&A. It allowed us to meet and take pictures with Libby Tanner, Celia Ireland, Danielle Cormack, and Tammy Macintosh.
The convention provided beautiful photos that were used for the autographing time-slot.
During this we were able to thank, laugh and joke around, it felt very personal and it was fun.
Most importantly, the round table meet-and-greets where fans spent quality time with the actors, shared stories that inspired and took extra pictures.
