Celia Pacquola guest stars on Rake

Fans of ABC favourite Rake may have spotted Celia Pacquola seducing Cleaver Greene, in her role as bombshell Nadia Vargas, in last Sunday night’s episode.

While she is one of Australia’s most in-demand comedians and comedy writer-performers, Celia is also a talented actor, winning the Best Supporting Actress AACTA for her role as Dolly Faraday in the acclaimed ABC1 drama The Beautiful Lie.

In Rake, she plays a high-flying Polish-Australian head-hunter who comes home from London and makes quick work of Richard Roxburgh’s antihero. In Polish, no less. You can catch up on iView here.

You can also see Celia live in conversation with Luke McGregor, hosted by Myf Warhurst, next month at the Yack Festival in Sydney. Tickets are on sale here.
