Watts took a break from acting after For Love Alone, opting to become a professional runway model. She travelled to Japan, but after four months her efforts were still going unrewarded. Watts would later describe it as one of the worst times of her life.
After working as both a shop assistant and an assistant at a fashion magazine, drama classes reignited Watt’s passion for acting. Which is when she landed this award-winning mini-series, playing Frances, a student at a Sydney convent school. Six episodes were filmed, and a young Russell Crowe once guest starred.
