Melbourne Leader

For actor Nadine Garner 

You’ve been on screen and stage for about 30 years now. Which do you prefer?

I love both. A highlight for me was performing in the musical Cabaret on stage.

From teen to mother, which stage of your life proved the most fruitful for your acting?

I feel that I am definitely more compassionate a person since having children and I find that my capacity for empathy helps me create “character” in my work a lot more easily than I used to.

In MTC’s The Distance you play Kate. Can you describe her in three words?

Controlling, frightened, emotional.

The Distance is a play about female friendship. What’s your number one friendship deal-breaker?

Forgetting a birthday.

What did you learn about police work in your time in City Homicide?

I learned that no one really knows what a horrible job detectives do and how much pressure it places on their personal lives.

The Distance is on at Southbank Theatre March 5-April 9. Details: mtc.com.au
